What the heck is the deal with engines having so many problems with plugs now days? When I read about the Ford 4.6 breaking plugs in the heads I thought it was just a Ford problem. Now I hear Dodge also has this problem. Is it because they use aluminum heads, different compressions ratios, what? In the old iron blocks you would never hear of such issues (at least I never did). I started replacing plugs when I was a kid some 30 years ago and even back then never broke a plug in the heads. These engines now are really delicate.
