HI, That's interesting. Does your engine run better after the new coil pack is installed. You should immediately notice a change in performance when you leave the garage. If you do experience an improvement,it's OK.
If you are not experiencing an immediate improvement in performance. Your mechanic is making
a lot of extra money selling you parts you don't need.
Hope this helps.
Best, Mark

Sounds like your being conned.if the coil pack was faulty you would get a misfire or a complete shut down.If your doing a lot of millage then the service light will come on.But it your not doing excessive millage the just get the light turned of and ask for no more than that.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF COIL PACKS ON YOUR ENGINE ( DETERMINED BY HOW MANY CYLINDERS ) IT SERVES TO REASON IF THEY ALL WORK AT ABOUT THE SAME TIME AND HAVE THE SAME DUTY THEN WHEN 1 FAILS THE REMAINING ARE CLOSE TO FAIL ALSO. CHANGER ALL OF THEM WITH A MOTORCRAFT COIL.

Car must warmup for five minutes to run properly


Is there a Service Engine Soon light associated with the driveability problem?

Older engines can behave this way and not light the SES light, immediately.

Anything from Compression issues, to coolant temperature sensor issues can cause this problem.

Also, ignition problems can exist in the coil packs until it warms up since the coil packs are mounted on the back of the 4 cylinder engine in some cases.

I wish you luck on resolving this problem.

I have a 2001 Ford Expedition 4.6 4WD. Service engine soon light came on and when checked at parts store diagnostics said cylonder #2 miss firing. Is this a coil pack because we can't find plugs,...


If you do not see a distributor or spark plug wires, then you have a coil over plug system. Changing the coil pack is as easy as removing the hold down bolt and lifting the coil pack off the spark plug. Other things should be checked like signal to the coil, the fuel injector signal and the spark plug

Service engine light on, hesitation and trembling. Does it need spark plug change or coils?


The coil on a particular cylinder could be going bad, or it could be several coils. Usually a spark plug, depending on the mileage, should be replaced over time, however, a coil pack is likely the cause of the miss.

Have the cause of the service engine soon light investigated by having it scanned at your local parts store, or engine driveability technician who has an OBD-II Scanner which covers the years 1996 through 2005 without a problem.

In my experience, when there is a miss the coil pack is the cause rather than the spark plug, but if you investigate the problem I'm sure you'll find it with the assistance of an OBD-II Scan Tool.

Service engine soon light flashing on acceleration


It sounds like u got a coil pack going out. Alot of times when your engine is cold or when you arn't putting a load on it the coils won't fail. How ever when the engine reaches operating temperatures and there is load on the coils that is when they are going to break down. my advice would be to get a scanner and see what cylinder the missfire is at then swwap that coil to another cylinder to verify that the coil is defective. If it is purchase another with a new spark plug put it in and let it rip.
