Hi! My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you with your concerns.
Um, no. You will burn up the heads on that engine. The heads are aluminum and they will overheat due to the truck trying to compensate. It will also run really rough. You will end up getting a lot of fuel into the chamber and flood the one without the spark plug causing internal damage. I wouldn't do it... only in an emergency to get you home or to the closest garage. That is it...
Plus with the hole where the plug will be, the pressure will spray the fuel out of the hole and when the fuel gets on the exhaust, it will catch the engine on fire. That is another chance to not take.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
