The most likely problem in your car is the pick-up coil in the distributor.You need to take off the distributor cap and then remove the rotor button and then the plate under it.Now you need to remove the the reluctor wheel and then the ignition module(a 5.5 mm socket ground down some to fit or the proper tool from ford),then the pick-up will come out.Testing it is almost impossible but it is an item that has a high failure rate so i would start there.l

check the firing order of the plug leads as they may have become crossed during the plug change. Check that the coil wire is firmly in the distributer cap.

Sounds like your computer needs to be replaced, it controls all of the ignition firing order. somethng else, the cam position sensor may be bad also, only 2 other problems I'm aware of in the ignition circuit.

Solved most of this myself. Changed ING. module which solved spark problem. The injectors still would not function, help came from JUSTANSWERS by idenifying a relay tucked between the left headlight motor and the coolant recovery canister.
