Need to change the rear coil/spark plugs on Ford escape 2006. Need engine diagram to do it.

Need to remove upper intake manifold

You can see the coils on the front or left bank

I'm referring to a V6

1,2,3 right side of motor -next to firewall
4,5,6 left side of motor-next to radiator

If you have a v6 do the 3 coils while your there & intake is off
& save them for some time you need them on the left side

We have no diagrams

A code PO301 thru PO306 does not mean a coil is bad

Watch" Wayne"on Real Fixes Real Fast ---on You Tube

You get the plugs & coils from Rock Auto.Com unless
you like spending more at the parts store

Spark Plugs--every 3 years
O2 Sensors--front ones only--100,000 miles
Gas filter & Air Filter -3 years
Trans & Power Steering Fluids -3 years or failure isn't far away

Try to use th OE Brand Plugs on a ford
The tip configuration etc is important
Because it show ten plugs that fit they may
not work well

I would have the motor checked with professional
scan tool software in Mode #06 & look for cylinder
misfire on a road test of 20 miles,before I did any
of the work your going to do. That may show you some
failing coils. Codes are next to uselss
I have had to walk new coils form one cyl to the next
even when the scanner didn't pick up anything

(8th digit of the VIN code is the Engine) H eng.code a 2.3L 4 cyl. Hybird/ Z eng. code a 2.3L 4 cyl. / and a 1 eng.code a 3.0L 6 cyl. Couldn't say if one was a Mazda engine. Usually if you have a Mazda part on a Ford it's the Transmission.

I may have to replace my starter. Is it easy to replace in a 2006 Ford Taurus, can I do it myself? . How much should it cost to take it to a repair shop?

hi this depends on what engine/motor is fitted as there are a two different types of starter motor, first one is a top mount starter and the other is an inserted side mount, depending as i said which engine/motor you have got, but they are both easy to fit for an armature mechanic if you have the tools to do it it is only 3 or 4 bolts and 2 wires, you are looking at possibly 70 to 100 US to fit one, not including the price of the new starter..hope this helps please vote thanks

Does the 3.0l transmission fit on the 4.0l engine


There are 5 automatic transmissions used in the Ford Ranger, Explorer and Mountaineer. They may be identified by checking the transmission code on the Safety Standard Certification Label attached to the driver's side door post, in the space marked Trans. The transmissions can also be identified by a tag attached to the lower left hand extension attaching bolt. The transmission codes are as follows:
  • 1991–94 code T is for the A4LD transmission
  • 1995–99 code T is for the 4R44E (2.3L, 2.5L & 3.0L) or 4R55E (4.0L) transmission
  • 1996–99 code U is for the 4R70W (5.0L) transmission
  • 1997–99 code D is for the 5R55E (5-speed automatic) transmission
So, what you need to do now is...establish from a FORD workshop, whether both the A4LD and 4R55E transmissions share the same components and mounting dimensions.
