2006 Ford 500 sputtering

I have had two different coil assemblies replaced in the past 6 months.The car hesitates and sputters on a slight incline going between 35-45 mph. The last one was replaced a week ago and
it is still intermittently happening. Could the dealer not be finding the root cause?

I received a check engine code indicating cyl 8 misfire. Replaced the common problem coil and no change. Spark plug is new. Engine run past 3000 RPM and starts to sputter. What can it be?

If you replaced the coil pack, plug wire, and injectors, then you have compression problem in clyinder 8, and your rings are bad, even though you may not see any smoke ...

Bad coil pack

If your truck has spark plug wires, you will want to change those as well, as a bad wire can cause an ignition coil to short itself out internally.

You have a bad misfire on one or more cylinders-replace plugs and wires, if it has wires. Check each coil for spark,, and replace bad coil(s) if there are any.

It sputters and hesitates sometimes when on low speed

There are a few things you can look at here:
  1. The EGR Valve or Idle Air Control Valve
  2. Check for misfires in your cylinders, possibly bad coil
  3. Check your fuel pump and fuel filter
Those are the most common issues with fords spitting and sputtering

2001 econoline 150 hesitates and sputters,knocks when driving. misfire on #2,#4 what causes this

This sounds like the coil for cylinders 2 & 4 is bad -- I'm assuming there is a coil pack which would have 3 coils for a 6 cyl engine and 4 coils for an 8-cyl dngine. Could be a bad electrical connection(s) to this coil as well.
