From my experience, if you get one bad coil you might as well change all 8 of them. They will just drop like flies until you do.

3 front coils? Ignition coils? If the engine had a miss for a long time the excess fuel can ruin a catalytic converter.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford F150 5.4 runs fine cold, but loses power when hot

hi, i would get the oxygen sensor looked at first as this only starts working when the exhaust reaches a certain temp.
But as your getting the problems when the engine is up to temp then this is what i would look at first it also called a lambda sensor.
Their is no way of testing this yourself but a garage could run a test and tell you if that part is at fault.

The problem is you just need to iliminate things orderly so i would get the oxygen sensor checked first before you spend money on other parts. If this is at fault then its not expensive to replace and does cause the problem your having

2002 Taurus will not start until pressure is applied to the coil wires

Corroded terminals on the coil pack or coil pack connector would be the easiest thing check. If the wiring and terminals look good, then I would replace the coil pack.

I changed the bad coil on my 2002 expedition but now i hear a popping sound when i step on the gas........can you help?

I would recheck the coil wires from the plugs and make sure they are completely pushed down.I had the same problem on my Escort.Also push down on the spark plug wires.When I try to pull off the spark plug wires,almost EVERY time one breaks and i have to replace them.Either a loose coil wire or a loose spark plug wire will cause the popping.

Car was running ruff. missing and had no power. replaced plugs and wires that didnt fix it. then i pulled the wires one at a time from the coil pack and the #4 wasnt firing. so i replaced the coil and it...

with electronics the problem is when you fix one weakness in the curcuit it will go to the next.. the best thing you can do if its the ignition system causeing the problem is replace as much as you can afford, also having a clean fuel and air filter will help it run nicely

Ignition Distributor location

There is no cap and rotor, as the vehicles igntion system is DIS (digital ignition system). The recommended tune-up on these motors require sparkplug and coil replacement. The coil type in this vehicle is COPs (coil over plugs). Usually moist and oxidation develope on the sparkplug chamber walls from faulty or worn coil boots. This causes the coil to short, they must be replaced at 75,000 miles at the same time the sparkplugs are replaced. Typical symtoms are: Vehicle stalls (restarts and runs normal), intermitted jerks/sputter while driving, misfires, rough idle, severe power loss. Hopefully this helps

After change of thermostat missing ,runs rough and no power

I've got a 2002 Expedition that experienced the same kind of problem. Turned out that the individual load coils on the spark plugs tend to act up when they get wet (either from rain, or possibly from fluid puddling on top of the plugs). Anyways, the fix for me was to replace the load coil. The #4 and #7 plug coils seemed to cause me the most grief (seperately on two different occasions). The wierd thing is unless it gets real bad, no computer code is generated. I took it to the dealer, thinking they had some sure fire way to find the problem. After my third trip back, they were able to figure it out through elimination. The next time it happened, I just did it myself.
