If you own an older modular Ford engine with the 2 valve heads, Clark Automotive Clinic offers tune-ups for the 5.4 and 4.6 liter engines as well as repairs. One common issue with these engines is the spark plugs are known to strip out the heads. When the engine spark plug threads get stripped out, we have inexpensive repair procedures that will offer you a couple of alternatives other than removing/replacing the heads. We have a low operating overhead allowing us to offer you reasonable pricing on these types of repairs. We do not charge a “diagnostic fee” to review these procedure options with you.
Late Model 5.4/4.6 Ford Engine Service & Repairs
Clark Automotive Clinic has modern Ford Performance expertise allowing us to provide factory specified tune-ups along with warranty repairs on newer 3 valve head modular 5.4 and 4.6 V8 engines. On these engines the spark plugs seem to still be the issue, but rather than blowing out, they tend to break off in the head. Removing a broken spark plug in these three valve heads is not something your average owner would want to attempt in their garage. Clark Automotive has special tools, and extensive experience, that allows us to tackle this nasty tune-up issue if it rears its head. Once again, we do not assess any sort of “diagnostic charge” when going over your tune up or repair options on your Ford car or truck.
Other Ford Engine Repair Procedures
These engines can be very dependable when taken care of properly, and with regular maintenance. But with any high tech engines, problems can arise. Ford 4.6 and 5.4 liter V8 engine repairs have been known to include problems with variable cam timing, timing chain durability, fuel management, and more. Many of these issues are challenging repairs that require specific procedures only a certified mechanic should attempt. Consider your options, and do your research when getting estimates, as many times the dealership will charge you much more, and get a higher markup on parts, only to give your car repair needs to a younger inexperienced technician rather than a certified mechanic.
We believe that today’s modern performance vehicle tune up and repair shop must have the proper tools and experience, but also give a darn about explaining your options to you, and treating you with a modicum of respect. We deal with tune-up and engine performance issues every day, but you don’t, and it’s costing you time and money to have your vehicle not working correctly.
