Question about 2001 Ford Taurus
How to replace a coil in 2001 ford taurus
Disconnect all 6 spark plug wires from the coil twist them while you pull up is the best way to take them off. To make sure you are putting the same wire back in the same spot on the new coil I would take a few pieces of masking tape and label the spark plug wires as you remove them and make a little diagram of the coil pack and which wire goes where that way when you put the new coil in you won't have any issues with mixing up the order of the wires on the new coil. I just use a marker on the coil and number the 6 spots and then label a piece of tape to the wire number and do this 1 at a time. then just disconnect the wiring harness attached to the back of the coil and remove the three bolts holding the coil down and its ready to replace. My advice is to have the new coil ready before you unhook the old one. This saves a lot of problems when making sure you hook up the wires to the right terminals when your hooking up the new coil. One of my rules when I am working on anything on my car is I now label things and take a quick picture of it before I take anything apart that way I always have a picture or two of the area i am working in it might sound like a waste of time or not necessary but it will always make up for it in the end if you ever have questions about the location of any of the parts your taking out or how to install it.
