If your real cheap, there are hood rats that advertise on craigslist that will do the work cheap or you can negotiate it cheap.

Luckily I keep maintenance records on my vehicles smile

Hopefully this gives you a general cost:
Vehicle is a 2002 5.4 F150
---------------------------------------
1. All new spark plugs
2. Coil packs on cyl 3, 4, 6 replaced
Total: $524.40

This was done by our trusted local mechanic

I had 8 spark plugs installed I supplied the plugs. The coil packs , if you don't supply them you can look at a serious mark up for parts.
I think I paid $150-$200.
Figure $90 a hour labor for a average. Those $45 a hour days are gone. Lawnmower shops get $80 a hour. What ticks me off is when they throw bull charges like shop fees in to sweeten it even more.
Sometimes a garage runs $69 or $99 brake specials but if you get the performance ceramic pads, rotors cut of new your looking at about $400 for a brake job too.

Book time is 2.8 hours for plugs. There's no extra labor for coils. Call around and ask about labor charges, you do the math.

My shop would be around $425. Labor only.

*Edit* this is assuming the spark plugs threads are ok

Does a 2000 F150 4.6L have COP coil packs?

I had a 98 which is the non-PI engine that did not have coil on plug.

I believe the trucks did not get the PI engine until 2001.

Why are you replacing COPS anyways, are you throwing a code?

I would buy the OEM plugs online, or the autolite equivalent, and do it yourself.

The F150 is cake to work on, there is tons of room. The book may say 2.8 hours but I have done it in a driveway in sixty minutes when I was 18 years old.

I believe the copper plugs are best for these engines, but if you don't want to mess with it again just replace with double platinum and call it a day.

I'd do the plugs for $50. Same for the brakes. I'd have both done in under 2 hours, including a test drive.

FWIW you will be having to do the job over if you use those coils. Use only Motorcraft if you want it to run right, same with the spark plugs.

What if the OP has no arms or legs or some other health issue?

It's gotta be something pretty bad for him to pay all that money on labor...

Coil and Plug #4 is not for the uninitiated. That one plug and coil will have most crying home to mama.

Very common for even professional mechanics to skip that plug. It's a rat's nest back there.
