Ya, the spark plugs have a sleeve that sits so close to the port in the head that carbon buildup and expanding/contracting from heat cause it to seize to the head.

Worse though is the cam phaser issue. Lucass and I are going to change one of mine out that is keeping the cam 10 deg advanced when it should be at rest during idle. It's throwing a CEL and I can't smog it. Ford wants $1270 to do it... Doing the plugs since it's got 145K now and we're gonna be in there anyways.
