Ya sounds like a plug came out
Ford Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Is it safe to assume you have check to see whether a plug pulled out of the head?

I have not got in their with wrench trying to find out if or why a plug would just come out and still run fine
Ford Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

It wouldn't run fine if a plug came out. You would have a noticeable miss. Plugs do come out on these ford heads. We see them all the time; the threads either pull out of the heads, or the plug somehow just backs it self out. If somehow one has come out on yours you will be able to tell right away if you check them while it's running. It will burn up a coil boot really quickly.

Other than a plug, the only place to make that kind of noise would be a major exhaust leak. You can use a smoke tester up the exhaust pipe to pinpoint it, but again, if you open the hood with the engine running you should be able to track it down.

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.
