      I did it! I have an mkt 2011 but it was identical to this. Took me 3 and a half hours to do it. Thanks for this video. I only had to spend 150 in parts. I had to change coil packs too.

      Just finished changing the spark plugs on my 2012 Ford Explorer. This video was spot on!

      My PCV hose wasn’t held on with one of those quick-disconnect connectors, though. It had those pinch-with-pliers-to-slide-off clamps at each end. Which actually made the job easier - I didn’t have to put the PCV valve in a vise and heat it to get the hose off. Just had to remove the clamp. Easy-peasy!

      After watching this, I feel I can clean my intake as well, before I was going to go to a shop, but this gave me a lot of confidence and realized it’s easier than I thought. Planning to swap all my park plugs and install oil catch can as well. But clean my intake before for any prior blow by

      You wonder why they(Ford) designed it that way? I have a 2014 Flex and don’t have the capabilities to perform this work. I suspect to the dealer😖 I go. Great vid as usual. At least I know what the work entails. How long do you figure the actual job would take, including the new valve?

      FordTechMakuloco would you know why my Shrt fuel trim 3 fluctuates between any single digit to -94.5. Could it be a wiring problem? It has also made the long fuel trim fluctuate the same way.

      I have a 2014 Ford Explorer Limited with 98k miles, serviced at Galpin Ford at 7500 miles( 12 times already) oil and tire rotation, like all my new vehicles. My question is this. You do a great job of explaining on how to do a spark plug change. I am going to do that as well at 100k miles but do the techs really do all that you do? Or just the necessary? I think they are on commission. The job takes x amount of hours etc...but if they crank it out sooner...more $$$$ in the techs pocket!

      Excellent video. Very detailed and clear. I just finished up on my 2012 Explorer. Only thing extra I did was clean the MAF sensor with some CRC since I had the intake tube off anyway.

      Yes most times they are, if they have a plastic sleeve on the plugs then they are pre gapped and should not of been disturbed during shipment. I always check before installing with a feeler gauge though.
