SOURCE: which ignition coil is bad?

I went thru this on my 2002 LS as well.
I replaced one ignition coil at the dealer - only to get the same misfire code on another cylinder. After a little research found out is actuall a gasket/o-ring problem design of the block. Spark plugs are deep in the block - under the oil - which is why they are supposed to last 100,000 miles. But the o-rings start to leak some where between 65k-85k miles. Coils go bad because of oil contamination. If you don't solve leaking oil problem will have to replace coils again - but sooner - because leaking oil will be progressively worse.
Cost - 8 ignition coils
set of spark plugs (who knew they were that expensive
and a ton of cash for the labor to tear down the top of the motor

Tring 2 find the firing diagram 4 a 2004 lincoln ls 3.9 v8 the ignition D coil pack needs 2 be replaced on my lincoln not sure witch cyclender is D

There is no cylinder D on an LS

You may have a code for that, but half the
codes you get on a misfire, you disregard

1,2,3,4, Pass

5,6,7,8 Driver

Front to back

Cylinder #4 is a PO 304 ,you can pretend it is D if you like

D on other Ford Products

Not all cylinder codes mean that the coil is bad

You get all sorts of codes & sometimes have to walk a coil
until you get to the bad one.

You have COP Ignition Coils Misfiring

They are bad enough to spike the PCM
and come back on the TPS Sensor and set
the 2107 & 2110 TACM Codes
(Throttle Actuator Control Motor)

You should have about 5 more codes

Replace coils on 2004 Lincoln 4.6L V8

You don't have a 4.6 V8 on an L/S. That is a truck motor

You have a 3.9 V8

You remove the covers, on top off the valve covers with a 7mm socket,as well as the coil with 7mm.

Ignition coils setup for 2004 lincoln ls v8 3.9 engine

COP Coils
cyl 1,2,3,4 on pass side-front to back
cyl 5,6,7,8 on driver side -front to back
Remove coil covers on top of valve covers, 7mm socket and wrench
7mm socket and one screw holding coil
Codes PO 301 to PO 308 are your coil locations.Last # is cyl.
You get all sorts of codes, ignore all but the 301.302,etc
If you get an ETC Failsafe or shut down,a coil is spiking the PCM and coming back on both sides of the TPS and putting it into Failsafe. Still just a really bad coil. You will get about two a year.

Locartion of primary/secondairy ign. coil d on a ls lincoln

You have COP Coil-On-Plug ignition system. A coil on top of each spark plug,no wires.

On the V6, the coils are in the middle of the valve covers

On the V8,you remove the coil covers on top and in the middle of the valve covers.

Do not be putting a meter on them,as you won't see the primary ,unless the Ignition Pulse Wheel is turning and the CPS has an output.
If you touch the ground side,you will take out the PCM drivers.

A PO-301 to PO-308 Code,could mean a bad coil. The last # is the Cylinder

The oil leak will only cause a COP Coil Misfire---IF,the valve cover O'Ring is leaking oil,onto the spark plug.
If you have a PO304 Code with the check engine MIL Light on,then replace the COP Coil on #4.


A 12 year old could change a coil, on your LS
All you need is a 7mm socket and wrench,for the coil cover and the one coil screw.
I just did one on my 2004 LS V8 in Feb. It was $59.00 at the local auto parts store
I don't dislike dealers,there is just no reason to go there ,except to buy parts,and only when the parts are dealer only.
Any repair shop can work on any vehicle.
If you ever have issues and you will have lots,I have all the shop manuals and wiring diagrams and Emission Diagnostic manual

Transmission "slips" when downshifting, especially going up slight incline and accelerating. Also, engine "misfire" idiot light came on once. Turned off engine, restarted, problem gone. What should I...

Lincoln LS's are good for the ignition coils going bad. This mimics a transmission issue trying to accelerate going uphill. Take your car to a LINCOLN dealer and have them do a stress test on the coil pack. It will tell them which one is bad. Also if your car is a 3.9 V8 and was built in the Wixom plant (you can tell by the VIN) google it. All of your coil packs and gaskets are covered for 10 yrs or 100,000 miles whichever comes first. It is listed in the TSB's
