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.

If there is power and both the coils and sensor check good, replace the ignition control module.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6223989-ignition_coil_doesn_t_spark . These are generic instructions--specific instructions are pasted below from Autozone.com. If you get stuck, please get back to me.
Use a test light to check for power to the coil on the black wire with a yellow stripe--see procedure below and other tests you can run. You will need a volt-ohm meter to run most of these tests.
The system used on 1990-95 Accords and 1989-95 fuel injected Preludes uses the distributor components to signal the engine computer. The ECU triggers the spark through the igniter unit and coil. This spark timing is controlled by the computer as an integrated function of the fuel management system. The distributor contains a crankshaft angle sensor and a No. 1 Cylinder Top Dead Center (TDC) sensor. Using these and other electrical inputs, the computer controls spark timing electrically.
