P0303 is misfire cylinder 3, cylinder 3 in an ohv engine is in the back cylinder all the way to the right, check coil to make sure its firing , take boot off coil(its numbered 3)leave there, start car, make sure theres spark, if theres no spark, bad coil, if there is spark, check plug, if plug is new and everything is okay, wire not burnt or arcing, do a compresion test and say a prayer

You are mis fireing on cyl 1 and 3 if you replaced plugs and wires and coil this is going to be a fuel injector issue or valve issue. See if you can swap the injectors with known good cyl. and see if it changes. Or have a shop do a fuel injector service on it to see if it helps. It may be to late for the fuel injector service.

My 2000 taurus keeps showing a #3 misfire code P0303. I have changed plugs, wires, checked the injector etc. Clear the code and for the most part it runs fine for a week or ? then light comes on again...


I had the same problem on my '02 Taurus, 3.0, V-6, 24 Valve engine. I replaced the plugs and plug wires which helped the problem but did not cure it. I then replaced the ignition coil (Motorcraft part # DG-485) which solved the problem. Has been running great since then...
