Is there power to the coil pack ,have you checked the fuse?if it has power and the fuse is good then the coil pack is bad

Posted on Jul 11, 2010

Testimonial: "Thanks, although I have no clue to what the problem was, after removing and reinstalling the coil, the car started and has ran since. I got a lot of run around from some other sites but this one was great. Thanks again."

    all fuses are good. When checking for power to the coil pack, test light didn't light but after touching the center wire, a buzzing noise could be heard near the left head lamp.

Location of #1 piston on 2005 ford taurus


There are three variations of the Taurus engine. All are 3.0L in size. Leave it to Ford to make things confusing. All have the same piston location, although one model has coil packs and the other has coil-on-plug. Here is a diagram showing the piston position and firing order.

97 ford taurus stalling


Just a thought. If you have an Autozone parts store near you, they have a free code scan service. It my help to narrow down the source of the problem. If you are a more serious DIY you can go to the library and find a Mitchells or Chilton service manual it will give the the test proceedure and specs for the coil pack

You are mis fireing on cyl 1 and 3 if you replaced plugs and wires and coil this is going to be a fuel injector issue or valve issue. See if you can swap the injectors with known good cyl. and see if it changes. Or have a shop do a fuel injector service on it to see if it helps. It may be to late for the fuel injector service.

97 ford taurus: Cylinder 2 misfire


Assuming the plugs and wires have been changed. I would look at the bottom of the coil pack. They tend to crack and short out.

Or if it's got coil packs they will also crack and short out.
