AWSF-32P This is what I'm finding what is called for in my truck. In regards to cross ref. other spark plug brands,are there equally as good plugs that cost less than the OEM plugs?

Check out rockauto for motorcraft plugs. Or pepboys or advance auto with sales+discount codes. Im not sure if any particular after market brand may work fine. But it has happened in the past a few times where I came to the conclusion that Ford engines do not like non ford plugs. Save yourself the time of doing the job twice.

Perhaps someone else knows of a less expensive brand they have used with success?

I would strongly recommend springing for the motorcraft

I had a bunch of autozone points or coupons (or something) and my NGK Iridiums ended up being free.

Get them from the dealer, they are generally pretty inexpensive.

Also, be sure to make sure the holes are clean, the threads are clean, and you torque them properly. You've got the sweet 3-thread heads, so don't be surprised if you still end up popping one down the road. Just the action of removing the OE plugs and installing the new ones is enough to damage the threads, and since you've only got three, they are very sensitive to damage.

I’ve always used Autolite in my Fords, with good results. They’re very similar, in fact the salesman said they make Motorcraft. They cost about half the price.

Just went to Rock Auto. The auto lite plugs are cheaper in price.

Not all of them are Autolite. Some are NGK now.
