SOURCE: Check engine light comes on. p0171 and p0351 codes found

From Lusty Kid:

I know the economy is bad, but change all of the plugs. Check your PCV Valve hose, 150 rottens them out allowing air to be sucked in, thus all kinds of codes.

Depending on mileage. Dismount the EGR valve and clean passages. If you are really good dismount the throtle position sensor body and clean out passages with Choke Cleaner., dismount where the EGR valves connects to the engine, clean out passages. Also check the hose thats behind this mounting to ensure is not clogged. If clogged clean it out. If not replace it. Is about 1.5 ft. long, connects to the PCV Valve Hose.

When is the last time you change your harness. Can't remember??? Replace it. Good Luck

SOURCE: engine code p0307 cylinder #7 misfire

It could be carbon deposits on valve seats keeping valves from totally closing. You can try getting you a can of motorcraft PM3 top end engine cleaner and get engine up to operating temp then remove one of the small vacuum lines from the intake and draw the contents of the can slowly into the engine.After you have drawn in the contents shut engine off and let it soak for about 45 minutes then crank it back up and let it run until it clears. Now it will smoke like a forrest fire while you are doing this so don't be alarmed,just tell the neighbors you are spraying for mosqitos.This may cure the problem. If not you may be looking at a valve job.
This can be verified with a compression test if this is what is causing it.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Functional Lock


The following procedure applies to vehicles that have functional lock cylinders. Such cylinders either have a key available or known key numbers from which a key can be made.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Turn the lock cylinder key to the RUN position.
  3. Using a 1/8 in. (3mm) diameter wire pin or a small drift, depress the lock cylinder retaining pin through the access hole in the upper steering column shroud (under the ignition lock cylinder) while pulling out on the lock cylinder. Remove the lock cylinder from the column.

Using the key, turn the ignition lock cylinder to the RUN position, then depress the retaining pin using a wire pin or small drift

To install:
  1. Install the lock cylinder by turning it to the RUN position and depressing the retaining pin. Insert the lock cylinder into its housing. Make sure the cylinder is fully seated and aligned in the interlocking washer before turning the key to the OFF position. This will permit the cylinder retaining pin to extend into the cylinder housing.
  2. Rotate the lock cylinder using the lock cylinder key, to ensure correct mechanical operation in all positions.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable.

Non-Functional Lock
The following procedure applies to vehicles in which the ignition lock is inoperative and the lock cylinder cannot be rotated due to a lost or broken key, unknown key number or a lock cylinder cap that has been damaged and/or broken to the extent that the lock cylinder cannot be rotated.

if it has a ignition coil over each cylinder very common for them to go out. easy change once you get to it only two bolts pops off new one pops on gl if thats your problem. if no coils over cylinders check your coil pack, faulty wire, faulty plug GL

LOOKING FOR THE LOCATION OF THE LOCATION OF THE IGNITION COIL FOR A 2008 FORD TAURUS MODEL


3.0 DOHC has six individual coils. One for each cylinder. you will see three in the front for the front three cylinders. The upper plenum will need to be removed to get at the back 3. Not a big deal, a couple of connectors, a couple vacuum lines, and a dozen bolts and it comes right off.

3.0 OHV will have a coil pack mounted on the front valve cover. It will have six ignition wires coming out of it.

I need a picture of the spark plugs on a 1998 ford taurus numbered


I don't have a link with pictures, but I will describe the cylinder and coil numbers for both the overhead valve (OHV) and the overhead cam (OHC) as best I can.
Facing the engine from the front bumper.
On the 3.0 overhead valve (OHV) the cylinder location looks like this:
1 2 3
4 5 6

The coil location looks like this:
5 1
6 2
4 3

If you have the 3.0 overhead camshaft (OHC) engine again facing the engine from the front bumper your cylinder location looks like this:

1 2 3
4 5 6

Your coil location looks like this:

4 6 5
3 2 1

I hope this was helpful.

I have a cylinder that is miss fireing. I have replaced the wires and the plugs. Iwas told that it is probably a valve that went bad. Can you still drive with it in this condition?


its not recommended to drive a vehicle with bad valves as it may cause major engine damage. Have you checked the ignition coil, this will cause misfire if defective. If this car has a 12valve V-6 engine its a single unit, if its DOHC 24valve v-6 its COPs (Ignition coil over plugs) and ther is 6 units. Hopefully thiss helps

How do i change the wires and plug wires om my taurus?


Follow the wires from your ignition coil (located at the drivers side of the engine) to the spark plugs. Unplug these wires. Using a 5/8" sprak plug socket (deep well with a bit of rubber at the bottom to protect the union of the wire to the plug), unthread the spark plugs. Place new plugs in the cylinder heads (you can use a thread protector available at the counter of most auto parts stores). Plug your new wires into the newly installed new spark plugs. The ignition coil has a diagram telling you which port is for which cylinder. On the V-6 3.0L Vulcan engine the rear bank from left to right is 1-2-3 and the front bank from left to right is 4-5-6. There you have it.
