When you turn the key on you put juce to the coil and the points in the dist. open and shut closing the field causing spark. so i would say you need new points.
to get by you could clean them but usualy they wont last long after you clean them.

I need 1988 mercury cougar v6 spark plug wire diagram!!!..thank you...


If your talking about the firing order? I didn't know if you had distributor or coil pack, so here is both. I don't like using a picture to show number 1 spark plug tower, that can be misleading, with a distributor. The firing order is 142536.

I have a 2000 mercury cougar that is not getting any spark. I changed the coil, crank and cam sensors. The hot wire to the coil is hot when the key is turned, but no spark is getting to the plugs.


You need to run the OBD2 Diagnostics. You will need to have someone hook up a scanner to the vehicle and retrieve the codes. This is the best place to start.

Number five plug not firing


I'm assuming this is a DIS(distibutorless ignition system).If it is,the most common cause is a defective coil pack.Each coil will fire a pair of cylinders together on 4 and 6 cylinder engines(one "waste" spark,one to ignite the mixture).Try swapping the wires at the coil pack to see if the misfire follows the coil tower,or the same cylinder misfires(keep in mind that a check engine light means you will have to clear the code to get the computer to feed that cylinder fuel before you start it up again).If the other cyl on the pack now misfires(i believe 1+5 are on the same pack on a Ford engine),then the coil is bad(spark is "leaking"to ground).If the same cyl still misfires,try swapping a wire+plug from another cylinder.
