Firing Order diagram for 2006 Ford Explorer


Hope this helps. The ignition coil:
  • changes low-voltage pulses from the PCM to high-voltage pulses.
  • fires 2 spark plugs simultaneously.
  • has 3 transformers.
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 1 and 5
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 2 and 6
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 3 and 4
Spark plug wires:
  • carry high-voltage pulses from the ignition coil to the spark plugs.
The spark plugs:
  • change high-voltage pulses to spark at the gap, which ignites the fuel and air mixture.
The firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6.

Explorer 97 check engine light


check firing order that you put the wires on right then 1 at a time pluck the wires off and replace them when you do this each one it will make the motor shake a bit more, keep checking till you pluck on the wire that shows no change in the running condition and check that wire and plug to see witch one is bad

Mis fire on cylinder 4 - Changed Cat. Converter, Replaced Fuel Filter, Replaced Air Filter, Changed Spark Plugs, rearranged Plug wires (made things even worse) and still not smooth and almost stalling at...


First off you want to make sure that you have the correct firing order down. When you rearranged the spark plug wires you might have made the firing order off and that could cause the misfire to get worse. the things that you should do to isolate the problem is to perform compression tests, fuel injectors, and also check the entire ignition system

Runs rough/worse, backfire sputters, smell fuel


make sure all wires are secure on the plugs. Make sure that if you bought the plugs aftermarket, that they are the suggested equipment from the Ford (http://www.car-stuff.com/carparts/fordtaurus20002000motorcraftmisp432154315.html Make sure the plugs (gap) were not damaged during installation. Check the firing order is correct. (1,4,2,5,3,6)

I just changed my spark plugs , wires , and coil on my 2000 ford explorer and it will turn over but it wont crank. what do i need to do?


Have you checked to see if you have spark to the plugs? I have found that on some Explorers , the primary voltage to the coil was not there. I know it sounds complicated, but it's not. You have a 4 wire connector at the coil pack. One of the wires has battery voltage going to it. When this wire is checked with a voltmeter when the key is on ,it will show 12 volts. When this wire is checked while cranking the voltage may drop to 9 volts or less. This is "NO GOOD'. If you find this, rewire a jumper from Batt to this wire. Should result in a start and run. Good luck Moe
