Question about 1997 Ford Econoline
Replaced a bad ignition coil, and now I'm unsure if the wires are connected to the right terminals. I can hear a spark sound when I turn the car on.
I presume what you replaced was the coil pack. if it's a six cyclinder which my windstar was... the numbering on the pack is one to three on one side. and 4-6-5 on the other. either ford had a better idea or they wanted to see if mechanic paid attention. you haven't mentioned the motor is running rough, but the spark sound suggests something is off. start from the coil pack and make sure each wire is where it should be. it's numbered right on the pack. the wires hopefully will have numbers stamped right on them.
follow each wire to see which cyclinder it goes to to make sure the order is correct.
