I would first,change the spark plugs only if they were in the motor,say three years and 50,000. Not just to fix a misfire
Second you can only change a COP Coil, if you have a code or a way of knowing which one is bad. Again,why would you change all of them, when they all now work?
Crank Sensors rarely fail,so what test did you do to determine that was necessary?
Also.how would you know ,you had a missing coil, if you had no crank signal?
Now lets go from where you are now
Did you check fuel pressure,key-on ,eng off,with a pressure gauge?
Fuel filter fairly new?
Do you have all the ducting from the air cleaner to throttle body on and no vacuum leaks?
Do you have the MAF sensor connected. No signal,no start!!
Let me know what help you need

You will only have (1) bad COP Ignition Coil, at the most
The Spark Plugs are not an issue at all ,unless they are in the
motor over 60,000 miles or more than 3 years,& not the cause
of the misfires.
You can replace a coil yourself in 15 min
They cost $59.00 tops at the auto parts store
On a V8
Wells (duralast/autozone) C1234 Both the same coil
On a V6 you can look on Wells web site or a lot of
If you have a V6 & most L/S probably are & you have
to do the right side of the motor,then the upper intake has
to come off ,to do coils or plugs
I own a 2004 LS & wouldn't let anyone touch it
Very few people are good with L/S Misfires or most Fords
Some shops avoid them
There are several ways to look for misfires
You have to have scan tool software & know how
to use $ Mode 6 & have & use an oscilloscope
All testing has to be done on a road test with the
test equipment on the coils
Doubtfull many repair shops even know what I'm
You can solve any coil issue yourself ,if you buy one
coil only & put it in a cyl with a misfire code
PO 301 thru PO306 or 8
If you don't get the bad coil, replace the old one &
continue to walk the new one
There are some real serious issues you will someday
face & you will need my help, as a dealer can't figure out
You have to use logic,& get your head around how these
systems work & loose the ford product additude & things go
as they would on any vehicle brand.
Don't even go near a dealer,waste of time & huge amounts
Do it my way
Get involved & install a coil & go from there
