is that a 4.6 engine that puked a spark plug. NAPA makes a self taping spark plug kit that works ok on a budget repair. the standard proper repair is to remove the cyl head and have it heli coiled. it takes special cam chain alignment tools to put it back together. if it is a old high millage car i would do the NAPA self taper repair. around 60 bucks. it even comes with the special spark pug.
some repair shops have tools to put in new threads without removing the head. i do not know how much they charge. good luck.
