2001 triton, uses a conventional plug. These were known for this issue. DO NOT USE A NORMAL HELI-COIL! They will not hold. this needs a "Time-Sert" style solid insert. I have done them on the truck, is possible, but time consuming. once the 'sert is in, usually no more issues, if done correctly, but I have seen them blow out, at which time the head needs to be replaced.
