I have noticed a Lot of people on here having plugs blow out lately and I just wanted to go over what I think is the best way to prevent plug blowout. The most important thing is to check the torque on the plugs every 5k miles or so. ( every other oil change is fine) The factory torque spec is 13 ft-lb's you can set this with a 3/8 torque wrench, just make sure you are not reading in inch pounds REMEMBER... IF YOU HERE TICKING NOISES CHECK YOUR PLUGS RIGHT AWAY... THIS CAN BE THE FIRST WARNING SIGNS OF A BLOWOUT. If you do have a plug blow out you can repair it with a timesert kit and there is other kits coming on the market to repair striped threads. DO NOT use a regular helicoil, this can cause a hot spot and lead to detonation.
