You can test the coil for OHMs resistance, but if you have an intermittent misfire, which I believe is what you are experiencing, the resistance test will not provide a true accurate reading. Your better off replacing the coil pack, but check the connectors first and regap or replace the plugs also.

Code reads misfiring on cylinder 8. where is cylinder 8 on a 2004 ford epedition


The spark plug wires might have the numbers on them. My Freestar original wires did.

From another web page http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Where_is_cylinder_8_on_5.4L_ford_engine

Probably at the rear (closest to firewall) on the driver's side.

Could be spark plug, ignition wire or coil (or coil pack).

2003 grand marquis with misfire code p0316


The first problem you have is assuming that the ignition coil is the only thing that can cause a misfire.

Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0316 is a "continuous memory only" code that indicates that there is a fault causing a misfire during the first 1000 revolutions of the crankshaft immediately after engine start-up. This should be accompanied by the regular cylinder misfire monitors (Codes P0301 through P0310) unless the misfire does not continue long enough for the regular misfire monitors to determine which cylinder is misfiring.

In order to determine what is actually causing the problem, you must have access to a scan tool that can perform Key On Engine Off (KOEO) fault testing and Key On Engine Running (KOER) fault testing as well as interfacing with the onboard engine computer to read live data and perform system tests.

Please note that generic OBD code readers DO NOT have the capabilities to do what you need to diagnose this problem. You will most likely get additional DTCs that can help lead you to find the source of the problem when KOEO and KOER tests are run. Generic OBD code readers can access only continuous memory DTCs.

Possibilities/conditions/systems that can cause this code are:
>Camshaft Position Sensor
>Low fuel: less than 1/8 tank
>Stuck open EGR Valve
>Blocked EGR passages
>Ignition system
>Fuel Injectors
>Fuel injector control circuits
>Running out of fuel
>EVAP canister purge valve
>Fuel Pressure
>Evaporative emissions system
>Base engine (mechanical) problems
