    Is the truck a 02?

    My friend has an 02 and there are only three threads on the plug making it very succeptabe to getting shot out.

    Thanks guys. I'm well aware of the issue with the plugs. My problem, my frustration is that I've never had it hapen before, and then all of a sudden, 2 have blew out just like that. If it was just one, well then it was my time. But two in 2 weeks, makes my think somehting else is going on. Oh, and it was not just after a plug change either. If it was, I'd think I over tourqed them. Gerrr...
