Unplug the wires from the injectors and the coils move out of the way . Use a 1/4 drive rachet and a short socket break the bolt loose turn out with your fingers. Reverse to install.

#8 coil pac, cylinder misfire...Need diagram The mechanic says I need a coil pack and spark plug replacement for the #8 ...Need diagram to figure out which one it is. it is

The #8 coil and spark plug are located on the drivers side rear of the engine. You will need a 7mm socket to remove the bolt that holds the coil down. After the bolt is out, pull the coil upwards and remove. Next you will need a 9/16" spark plug socket to remove the spark plug which is located in the hole that the coil came out of. The spark plugs in a 5.4L engine are sometimes frozen into the engine. If it is very hard to turn the plug, try spraying some WD-40 down the hole onto the plug and let it soak in for a while. Do not try to force the plug to turn, it will break and a special plug extractor will be needed to remove it.
Hope this helps you!

How are cylinders numbered 1-8

4 8
3 7
2 6
1 5

The coils are very simple to change. You will only need a socket wrench, extension and, if I remember correctly, a 7mm socket.

1. remove electrical connection on coil.
2. remove bolt holding down coil
3. twist and pull to remove coil
4. apply di-electric grease inside new coil
5. press onto plug
6. apply di-electric grease inside electrical connector
7. bolt down coil
8. reconnect electrical connection.

After you are done, you will wonder why the dealership charged you so much for something so simple that can be done in 15 minutes, taking a beer break between each coil.

How do I Install the Ignition Coil?

Take the coil back.
Your truck has 8 coils mounted over each plug. If your just doing a tune up you dont need any coils, just change the plugs. Unplug each coil and remove the 10mm head bolt and pull off. Change the plug and re install the coil.
I assume your just doing maintenance and not trying to fix a misfire code.

Stays runing from point a to point b after that it wont start 2 h

I hate to tell you this but they are not fun to remove. Do not try this when the car is hot you will be burnt by the exhaust if you do! You have to reach up the backside of the engine and most of the work can only be done using one hand. Make sure you number your wires so you can put them back in the right place. If you mess up the factory coils have numbers on the most of the time and number one plug will be on left side, first plug, if you are facing the car. It’s hard to tell which wire you have when it goes behind the engine. You can have the coil checked at Autozone or Advance they should be able to help you with that! If for some reason they can’t post again and I can send the information needed to check them if you think you can do it yourself.

See Figure 1
1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
3. Detach the assembly electrical connectors.
4. Tag and disconnect the spark plug wires.
5. Unfasten the three ignition coil assembly-to-block bolts, then remove the assembly from the engine.
Fig. 1: Exploded view of the ignition coil assembly - 2.2L (VIN 4) engine shown
To install:
6. Position the ignition coil assembly to the engine. Install the mounting bolts, then tighten to 15-22 ft. lbs. (20-30 Nm).
7. Connect the spark plug wires to the proper coils, as tagged during removal.
8. Attach the coil electrical connectors.
9. Carefully lower the vehicle, then connect the negative battery cable.

A 2.2 and a 2.0 are basically the same engine.
