Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


Maybe there was still some rust in the plug hole...? Maybe there is condensation around the plug hole...? Worst scenario, you may have a cracked block..! Check your oil to see if it looks clear and clean.... Is the truck running ok with the new spark plugs ? Let us know, ok?
