    yes, I got tired of guessing which coil had gone out so I replaced all 8 coils and all 8 spark plugs. I thought that had fixed the problem but 4 months later I had to replace one of the new coils, could be bad luck on coils.

Have you replace spark plugs? They may be overworking the coil packs. I would recommend the motorcraft spark plugs.

I need a spark plug wiring diagram for a 4.6l Triton V8. 2001

Your shouldn't have any spark plug wires on your vehicle. There should be a coil on top of each spark plug. The firing order is 1 3 7 2 6 5 4 8 if that helps. I went back a year incase you had a late model 2000 but that 4.6 also has a coil on plug. If you do have spark plug wires, I don't think that's the original engine then.

My 2003 ford expedition reads a code 0303= 3 cylinder misfire, which side of my vehicle would that be on and could replacing ignition coil and spark plug fix it and stop the lose of power and hesitation?

Third cylinder back on the passenger side. I'd recommend changing all 8 coils and spark plugs. These coils don't last long, and once one goes, more will fail soon after. This job also requires removing the fuel rail to gain access to the coil and plugs. I personally have the same SUV and went through the same issue!!

What is the firing order for the spark plugs on my 2000 chevy express van?

I sincerely apologize for the late response...Due to the bad economic situation this site has had a substantial (+50%) increase in the number of questions being asked in the last four months.

I am not sure if you have the 1/2, 3/4 or 1-Ton model.
Also Not sure if you have the 4.3L, 5.0L, 5.7L or 7.0L Engine. However I have included all below.

For the 4.3L (6cylinders):
Firing Order:
(front of vehicle)
coil wire-->

For the 5.0L AND 5.7L AND 7.0L (8-cylinders):

Many times a bad plug will cause the coil coded to be dropped. If you have not changed them be sure you change all of them (8 or 10)

How are cylinders numbered 1-8

4 8
3 7
2 6
1 5

The coils are very simple to change. You will only need a socket wrench, extension and, if I remember correctly, a 7mm socket.

1. remove electrical connection on coil.
2. remove bolt holding down coil
3. twist and pull to remove coil
4. apply di-electric grease inside new coil
5. press onto plug
6. apply di-electric grease inside electrical connector
7. bolt down coil
8. reconnect electrical connection.

After you are done, you will wonder why the dealership charged you so much for something so simple that can be done in 15 minutes, taking a beer break between each coil.

If this was helpful to you, please rate my answer. Thanks, Rolanddirty

Ignition Distributor location

There is no cap and rotor, as the vehicles igntion system is DIS (digital ignition system). The recommended tune-up on these motors require sparkplug and coil replacement. The coil type in this vehicle is COPs (coil over plugs). Usually moist and oxidation develope on the sparkplug chamber walls from faulty or worn coil boots. This causes the coil to short, they must be replaced at 75,000 miles at the same time the sparkplugs are replaced. Typical symtoms are: Vehicle stalls (restarts and runs normal), intermitted jerks/sputter while driving, misfires, rough idle, severe power loss. Hopefully this helps
