Make sure your firing order is right check with a book for your model preferably a manual that covers your year and make.if you look at the location of wires coming off of the coil make sure they are running to correct cylinders otherwise pull those plugs look at them make sure they are gapped corectly and they are not fouled if they are replace with new plugs.you can go to a harbor freight store buy a plug tester for under 5 dollars best way it will tell you if the wires are bad or its the plug! good luck!

Firing Order diagram for 2006 Ford Explorer


Hope this helps. The ignition coil:
  • changes low-voltage pulses from the PCM to high-voltage pulses.
  • fires 2 spark plugs simultaneously.
  • has 3 transformers.
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 1 and 5
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 2 and 6
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 3 and 4
Spark plug wires:
  • carry high-voltage pulses from the ignition coil to the spark plugs.
The spark plugs:
  • change high-voltage pulses to spark at the gap, which ignites the fuel and air mixture.
The firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6.
