Each coil mounts on top of the spark plug and is bolted down to the intake manifold with a 8mm bolt. You'll need to unplug the electrical connector to the coil, remove the 8mm bolt and pull the coil and boot up off the plug and out of the motor. You'll need a 5/8 inch spark plug socket, a ratchet and a 6 inch extension. Also a telescoping magnet with help getting the plug up out of the hole.

Check for spark. Maybe a crankshaft position sensor is bad or a module.

Secondary Spark Test This spark tester looks just like a spark plug, attach the clip to ground and crank the engine to check for spark 91052p10.jpg
This spark tester has an adjustable air-gap for measuring spark strength and testing different voltage ignition systems 91052p11.jpg
Attach the clip to ground and crank the engine to check for spark 91052p12.jpg
This spark tester is the easiest to use just place it on a plug wire and the spark voltage is detected and the bulb on the top will flash with each pulse 91052p10.jpg
The best way to perform this procedure is to use a spark tester (available at most automotive parts stores). Three types of spark testers are commonly available. The Neon Bulb type is connected to the spark plug wire and flashes with each ignition pulse. The Air Gap type must be adjusted to the individual spark plug gap specified for the engine. The last type of spark plug tester looks like a spark plug with a grounding clip on the side, but there is no side electrode for the spark to jump to. The last two types of testers allows the user to not only detect the presence of spark, but also the intensity (orange/yellow is weak, blue is strong).
  1. Disconnect a spark plug wire at the spark plug end.
  2. Connect the plug wire to the spark tester and ground the tester to an appropriate location on the engine.
  3. Crank the engine and check for spark at the tester.
  4. If spark exists at the tester, the ignition system is functioning properly.
  5. If spark does not exist at the spark plug wire, perform diagnosis of the ignition system using individual component diagnosis procedures.

Ignition Coil Testing
  1. Remove suspect coil.
  2. Disable fuel pump by disconnecting inertia switch electrical connector.
  3. Reconnect the ignition coil electrical connector to the coil.
  4. Install spark tester 303-D307 (D81P-6666-A) or the equivalent.
  5. Crank engine while observing the tester.
  6. If a blue-white spark is not observed replace coil.

Removal & Installation To Remove:
  1. Remove the air cleaner outlet pipe if interfering.
  2. Disconnect the connector from the ignition coil. coilconn.gif

  3. Remove the bolt from the ignition coil. coilbolt.gif

  4. Remove the ignition coil on plug.
To Install:
  1. Install ignition coil on spark plug.
  2. Install ignition coil bolt. Tighten to 10 Nm (89 in. lbs.). coilbolt.gif

  3. Reconnect the ignition coil electrical connector. coilbolt.gif

  4. Install the air cleaner outlet pipe if removed earlier.

I have a 2000 crown victoria n my check engine light came on and I got it read and it says cylinder 3 misfire. What could it be.


If you have coil on plug (which is each spark plug has it's own little individual coil sitting on top of it with a spark plug boot connecting it to the spark plug) the coil has most likely gone bad. Cost about $45 for a new one. Before buying this make sure the connections to that coil is fully seated and wiring has not broken anywhere especially at the connector.

What are spark coils?


I believe you are referring to ignition coils. A coil is an electrical device which basically converts 12volts (which is what a car battery puts out) and amplifies the voltage anywhere up to around 50,000 volts in order to ignite the spark plug which in turn burns fuel.

How do you tune up a 1993 ford crown victoria


All you really have is the spark plugs and spark plug wires, I believe your car doesn't have a cap and rotor to replace, just coil packs, which really isn't something you replace when you do a tune up. I would also replace the fuel filter and check the air filter. Make sure you change 1 wire at a time, so they don't get put back on wrong.

Duraspark Type Plug Wires
The spark plug wires used with the Duraspark type ignition system are 5 / 16 in. (8mm) in diameter to contain the higher output voltage. There are two types of wires used in this system, and some engines may have both types installed. It is important to properly identify the type of wire used for each cylinder before replacements are made.

Both types are blue in color and have silicone jacketing. The insulation material underneath the jacketing on some plug wires is a silicone layer separated by glass braid. The plug cable not incorporating the silicone layer is used where engine temperatures are cooler and are identified with the letter SE with black printing. The plug cables with the silicone insulation are used where high engine temperatures are present. These cables are identified with the letters SS with white printing.
Each spark plug cable, if original, is marked with the cylinder number, model year and date of cable manufacture (quarter and year). Service replacement wires will not have cylinder numbers, or manufacture date.


On any vehicle equipped with a catalytic converter, never allow the engine to run for more than 30 seconds with a spark plug wire disconnected. Unburned fuel in the cylinder may ignite in the converter as it is exhausted and damage the converter.

When removing spark plug wires, mark and tag the individual wires. Grasp, then slowly, twist the insulator back and forth on the spark plug to free the insulator. Do not pull on the wire directly as it may become separated from the connector inside the insulator. Special tools are available which can help ease plug wire removal, and prevent damage to a cable.

When installing a new set of spark plug wires, replace the wires one at a time so there will be no confusion. Start by replacing the longest wire first. Route the wire exactly the same as the original.

I need a wiring diagram for an 83 crown victoria starter coil


if you turn the key and the engine spins but doesnt fire try checking the timing for it to make spark at the time you need it to ,if it's out it wont catch and run or check for spark at the spark plug make sure it has spark use a dummy sparkplug in the boot and hold it on a ground and crank engine look for a blueish spark and if you have bare hands holding it you'll get a good jolt (insulated pliers)
