Check the wiring connector going to the coil pack. you will probably find one wire corroded going into the connector. Ford sells a connector kit for this repair @ $35..
It will turn on you check engine light. Is it on?

HOW DO YOU REPLACE A COIL PACK IN A 1997 E150 5.4L V8 FORD VAN


Hi, welcome to FixYa.com my name is Shawn and I will be answering your question.

You may need to remove the air cleaner or dog house to gain access. Identify the faulty cylinder.
They have an individual coil for every plug on this engine. Do you have a check engine light on if so if you retrieve the code it should be a P030X misfire code the X being a number between 1 and 8 identifying the cylinder that is misfiring. #1 being the passenger side front - #4 passenger rear #5 driver front #8 driver rear. They go in order 1-4 passenger side 5-8 driver side. Remove the coil it is a 7mm bolt and pull it out.


I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please ask.

I have a 1997 ford taurus 6 cylinder that has a ''misfire'' diagnostics reading. It says cylinder six. I have changed all the spark plugs and wires and reset the code, the check engine light came back on....


Vacuum lines will not cause a specific cyl misfire. You may have a bad coil pack, or bad injector. You will need to make sure you have spark at the specific cyl listed for the misfire, and can test to see if you have injector pulse using a noid lite. Also, and good scan tool can show you live data, and allow you to watch the components operation, and give you a good starting point to determine the miss.

Disconnect the battery completely, try turning the key with the battery disconnected. Put the battery back together. The check engine light should be off now..

Cylinder #1 misfire on a Ford Taurus SHO


Did you check the condition of the spark plug? If the plug is good do a compression check; a very low reading could indicate a sticking intake valve (sticking open). The easyest and cheapest way to fix a sticking valve is to introduce 1/2 can of Sea Foam into the air intake manafold; just follow the instructions on the can except you will use 1/2 can instead of 1/3 can. That Yamaha motor from what I have found collects tons of gunk on the valve stems. Good luck.

I may not have the answer but I had a similar problem with my 97 taurus, for me the problem was the Oxygen sensors they needed to be replaced. If you havent done that maybe try it or ask a mechanic if that might be the problem

Cylinder 1 and 4 misfire on my 1997 Ford Explorer


The code description is a giveaway.
It could be one of the coils on the coil pack. Most coils nowadays do two cylinders each. This way car makers can get away with one coil for two cylinders.(lowers costs) One spark fires the air fuel mix in one of the cylinders and the other will fire the cylinder on the exhaust stroke. If the coils are removable, and you are fairly handy with cars,switch two around, the problem will follow the bad coil.

97 ford taurus: Cylinder 2 misfire


Assuming the plugs and wires have been changed. I would look at the bottom of the coil pack. They tend to crack and short out.

Or if it's got coil packs they will also crack and short out.
