Yes it has plugs. Suggest to purchase a repair manual Haynes or Chilton Ford Taurus 19996 thru 2001. Cost is 20 dollars approx. at bookstore or auto parts store IE Autozone. It tells you lots of things and saves you a lot on repair bills. Suggest you also read your owners guide.

2006 ford Taurus I change spark plugs and wires and coil packs but it is missing real bad and u can smell gas it runs real rough

I had a similar sounding problem on my old 1993 Lexus. In my case it was the car's computer. The capacitors on the circuit board went bad and it caused the fuel injectors to be constantly open. This flooded the engine. It would run, but very badly and it blew a lot of white smoke out the back. I replaced the capacitors and the problem went away.

I have a miss on my 2005 taurus is it my coil pack I have changed plugs and wires

If it is really missing, the check engine light should come back on.
The problem could be a coil, plug, injector, or mechanical problem such as a sticking valve or vac leak.

Yes Seafoam is a good product as well as other cleaners. If the injector is faulty cleaning will not solve the problem.

Brian, I would take a spray bottle filled with water and start car. With the motor running spray all the plug wires and coil wire. if it starts to miss or run rough replace your plug wires they are bad. If it runs the same after spraying the plug wires try spraying all electrical connections til it starts to act up.
Hope this helps Thanks for using

Check the spark plugs? Even with platinum plug gaps widen over time.
Check the thermostat and see if you are warming up OK. My 2000 had plugged water lines at the manifold/heater core bypass lines at the firewall.
You should have a code - since the rough running. It may not be the problem but show you where to go to solve it.

Cyliner 1 misfire, codespo301, po316, po301b, b1352

A misfire can be cause by several factors. here are a list of things to check check spark plug on that cylinder and check coil and wiring for coil. check cylinder compression on all cylinders if one cylinder is less than 10 psi different from the others that can cause a miss, last but not least check injector pulse using a noid light for injector pulse if pulse is good then injector is bad replace and that should solve your problem. Good luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA

Missing, running rough

head gaskets do not "dry out"
running rough indicates injector problems --stale fuel dirty injectors or sticking injectors
run the fault codes to determine fault area
oil around spark plugs indicates that the rocker cover seal under the plug tube is leaking into the plug area
