1997 Ford Thunderbird Transmission problem
When driving normally transmission surges like it is not in gear. Had sensors replaced, nitural safety switch, and still acts up.

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.

SOURCE: 2004 Audi A4 misfire
it is always a good idea to stay with o.e.m parts and yes there is updated parts in the newer coils. and yes the M.A.F will also cause misfire faults but will not make check engine light flash or make car shake and shudder. also check you wire harness going to your coils make sure your ground wires are not cracked. That could be the main culprate. good luck hope this helps

This sounds like a classic fuel system problem. Manually check your 1 & 3 plugs to prove /disprove the code. If they're OK, which I'll bet they are, check the fuel pump. If it tests good then you have a fouled gas tank, I'll bet. Especially if you live in the Northwest. If you let it sit with low fuel, the extra air space lets condensation form, causing rust and moisture in your gas. Usually changing the fuel filter will give you some temporory improvement if this is the problem. If it didn't then it could be your air intake not delivering enough flow to give it the proper fuel/air ratio. When's the last time you changed the air filter?

Testimonial: "Helped me rule out the fuel system."
A misfire doesn't always have to be ignition... it's just the most common cause. Faulty or plugged injector, low compression. You need to check fuel pressure and test the fuel injector flow. Then check compression. If you don't have tools for these tests, take it to someone who does. Testing is much cheaper than throwing parts at the problem.
