Customer Question
Is my 2005 Motorhome...

Is my 2005 Motorhome VIN 1F6LF53S040 with a V10 Triton (on the F53 chassis program) a 2v or 3v? The main reason I am asking is that I am trying to figure out if I have the V10 engine/aluminum heads that have or don't have the 4 thread spark plug base (that have a history of blowing out or early strip out the aluminum spark plug head threads)?????

Mechanic's Assistant: When it comes to this particular vehicle, have flat tires been a problem in the past?

Not at all what I asked,

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '05 Ford?

F550 Motorhome Srtip Chass

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F550 yourself? What have you tried so far?

6.8 EFI V-10 ENGINE

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

HI,

By the vin number, I show it as the 3v engine and therefore does have the spark plug thread issues.
