How do i replace the coil packs on 94 Mercury Grand Marquis i got a bad miss and a back fire when climbing hills

First check your coils, in a dark area start your vehicle and with a spray bottle with water, spray over coils, if you see arcing, you have bad coils, which could be causing your miss fires. Coil packs are held by nuts or bolts, remove these and then pry upward with fingers while twisting in a clockwise and counter clockwise motion. Remove spark plugs and check them. Might consider in performing a tune up.

1995 mercury marquis belt tensioner how is it loosened

Should be a 1/2" drive ratchet (or Johnson bar) hole in the arm of the tensioner. Insert your choice & turn clockwise I believe, to loosen tension. Careful, usually pretty strong tension.
