Misfire is almost always bad spark plug and/or ignition coil. I wouldnt trust an OBDII scanner to correctly diagnose which cylinder is misfiring. Your best bet is to replace the coils in all 8 cylinders (or 6 if its a V6) since when one goes out it makes the others work harder, meaning that they arent far behind

Your cylinders are most likely misfiring because of faulty coils. Each cylinder has its own seperate coil and the coils get oil on them from leaking valve cover gaskets in these cars.

They are relatively easy to replace however.
I would also change the valve cover gaskets if their is oil on any of the coils.

I hope this helps,

Please don't forget to give me a fixya rating.

SOURCE: 2002 Lincoln LS misfire on cylinder 6.

A bad coil pack can foul out the spark plugs. I have also been told the computer might need to be reset for around $100. You must use Motorcraft OE plugs for this car to run at its best is what my mechanic told me.

you may need to check the cowl pack that sits on top of the plugs and check all of your vaccum lines give these websites a try and if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your car wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

Where is the coil pack for cylinder 5 located at for a 2002 lincoln ls

Hi, welcome to my name is Shawn and I will be answering your question.

They have an individual coil for every plug on this engine. Do you have a check engine light on if so if you retrieve the code it should be a P030X misfire code the X being a number between 1 and 8 identifying the cylinder that is misfiring. #1 being the passenger side front - #4 passenger rear #5 driver front #8 driver rear. They go in order 1-4 passenger side 5-8 driver side. If this is a 6 cylinder then coil 1 would be the passenger side front coil 3 would be the passenger side rear. Coil 4 would be the Driver side front and 6 would be the driver side rear. The coils are located under the center cover on the valve coves.

I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please ask.

So I obviously got misfire out of a couple cylinders.P0300,P0304,P0307 are all misfire codes. P0358 is ignition coil H and P0352 is ignition coil B.... I want to start out with going to change...

Spark plugs are not your problem

There are no letters on an LS cylinder

You won't likely have two bad COP Coils
and maybe not the #3 or#7

If not, you have to walk a new coil to find the
bad cylinder

These cars are famous for leaky seals where the valve cover interfaces with the cylinder head, at the spark plug journals. They fill with oil, short the coils and cause a misfire. Driving it any significant distance can destroy your catalytic converters ad unburnt fuel ignites therein, creating inferno-like conditions and a fire hazard too. You'll get a "300 code", such as 301 if cylinder 1 is misfiring, 302 for # 2, etc. Pull the coil off the spark plug for that cylinder and if it is moist at all, that's your issue. Have new seals put in, or you'll just keep blowing coils at $50 a whack.
