A Triton engine I bet. Ford had a lot of trouble with that, they only used 4 threads on the plug, and on an aluminum head to boot. I don't know what they were thinking

You need to put a thread kit in the head on the affected cylinder. FORD had issues with the design of this cylinder head and the sparkplug threads.
