Remove the air intake tube and you'll have to reach behind the engine with a ratchet and I like to use a 6" 3/8 drive extension.

What ignition coil is number 3 on a 2010 ford taurus 3.5?

Follow your spark plug wires down to the spark plugs. They order by the sides of the engine. So left side of engine starting from front to back is 1,2,3. Right side front to back is 4,5,6. So, it should be the wire that is connected to the spark plug on the left back of the engine.

Is my 98 ford taurus rear wheel?

If you want to know if it is rear wheel drive, then I would say no. It is front wheel drive. One can tell by looking at the halfshafts that lead to the wheels in the front vs. the back wheel area.

You have to remove the parts that are in the way, then lay on top of the engine to get at the plugs, you will need a good spark plug boot removal tool as well or you will tear the plug boots, the plugs don't need changing until 100,000 miles.

What is a Taurus 2 cycle??? When does it misfire? Report fully!

Quick and simple solution is change the spark plugs, use the plain platinum type, and the spark plug wires. When installing the plugs, be sure to use antiseize compoud on the plug threads before installing them. The proper spark plug gap will be listed on a sticker label under the hood. It helps to remove them air filter assembly and duct work to get easier access to the back three plugs.

If you're talking about the spark plugs, it's pretty easy. Follow the spark plug wires back to the cylinder heads. This will have a rubber cap on it, pull that off and you'll see a little metal stem. Use a 5/8" Sparkplug socket (deep well with a little rubber insert to protect the plug) and unthread it. After this, coat it with some spark plug thread sealer (it's in a little pack sold at the front counter of an auto parts store like Autozone). Put your new plugs in and tighten them down. Don't tighten too much, you just want them to be snug. Hope this helps.
