Driving to amusement park 1 1/2 hours from my house #2 spark plug blew out of engine. Had to stop and have vehicle towed to nearest Ford dealer. Spent $644.66 dollars to repair, and notified Ford Motor Company of problem. This is a common occurrence to this engine type and Ford knows about it and does nothing to fix it.
