Question about 2007 Ford Ranger 2.5
I see three wires off each lead and each lead has a green and I know that's groud but why two other wires on each side
The green wire is the ground so as long as you have that going to the ground prong (bottom one of the plug) it does matter which side you put the neutral or common wire for that system. Basically get the ground to the bottom prong and put the the other two on each other prong and you are good to go.

I personally would replace the block heater,
so you have a safe & working item & the proper
connector on the end
Only other option, is look at a wiring diagram
wherever you can find one
Have to verify your info, if it is not an OE Factory
Wiring Book or reference source

If the colours on the new plug are different,no problem. Just make sure the same amount and colour go back to the original holes/terminals.
If you still need help, you should let us know which engine you have.Also if it is a 2V or 4V.

your problem is not wire location, it sounds like bad wire or wires, also those engine are pron to bad coils,but i think you should start with wires,also check fuel filter or just replace if you can check fuel preasure.hope this helps.

Ford has substantially altered their 1978-86 electronic ignition test
procedure. Due to the sensitive nature of the system and the complexity
of the test procedures, it is recommended that you refer to your dealer
if you suspect a problem in your 1978-86 electronic ignition system.
The system can, of course, be tested by substituting known good
components (module, stator, etc.)
This system, which at first appears to be extremely complicated, is actually quite simple to diagnose and repair. Diagnosis does, however, require the use of a voltmeter and an ohmmeter. You will also need several jumper wires with both blade ends and alligator clips.
The symptoms of a defective component within the solid state system are exactly the same as those you would encounter in a conventional system. Some of these symptoms are:
- Hard or no starting - Rough idle - Poor fuel economy - Engine misses while under load or while accelerating
If you suspect a problem in your ignition system, first perform a spark intensity test to pinpoint the problem. Using insulated pliers, hold the end of one of the spark plug leads about 1 / 2 inch; (12.7mm) away from the engine block or other good ground, and crank the engine. If you have a nice, fat spark, then your problem is not in the ignition system. If you have no spark or a very weak spark, then proceed to the following tests.
Tell if you are talking about this ignition system...
Hope this help.
