Checked the fuse and circuit breaker on ford crown victoria 4.6l engine, still no change in the engine when the cop is unplugged. What else can I check for?

The PCM driver not controlling the coil ! A driver in the PCM is a transistor , the PCM turns on the transistor to give a ground to the coil to build of a magnetic field inside the coil . There are test procedures on you tube videos . Check out scanner Danner videos , he is a professional Tech an teacher . If after watching is videos an you still can't fix the problem , you best to take it to a qualified repair shop. If only one cylinder isn't firing it isn't a fuse or circuit breaker .Here watch this , learn how it works ! Don't guess ! Autolite Coil on Plug Ignition troubleshooting

Caldina GT-T spark plugs are centrally located in the head, in deep wells in the cam cover.
As the GT-T does not have a distributor, you won't see spark plug wires. The intercooler needs to be removed and the four COP (coil-on-plug) assemblies tagged and unpluged. Unbolt and remove the COP assemblies and then use a long extension with the correctly sized spark plug socket to remove the plugs.
Keep the COP assemblies in order to replace in the same positions as removed.

Bad igniter

xv20 ? USA> all answers by me , USA. so.....????
guessing? why not post symptoms,????
does car have an Immoblizer, and if yes, is it ACTIVE? (dash lamp)?
did you scan it, scan the PCM and crank for 5seconds.
it will tell you what is bad. CMP or CKP
did it?
what displacement v6 (guessing at)
3.0 L 1MZ-FE V6 192 hp

did you ever remove the Vbank covers and note this is a COP
engine (coil over plugs) and has 6 cops and 6 ignitors?
are all 6 cops dead, ID BET NOT !!!
but if ALL were, then the ECU will tell you why back to my scan quesiton at top;. dead CMP, dead CKP.
my 1998 cars has (outside ignitors) even with COP engines.
later they moved the ignitors to the cop or ECU.
this car has an external. called the ICM
$265,. so dont guess.
swap cops to find out if the ICM is dead or the cop.
easy huh? if the problem sticks in place , its a bad ICM.
The ECU fires the ICM using 3 wires, and a feed back wire.
the ECU will tell you if the ICM fails. scan it.

here it is at the left strut tower

I15, see it?

Code P0351 what does it mean

the code means "ignition coil A / primary circuit malfunction". It usually leads to a car misfiring or running rough. The coil on plug (cop) ignition system has a short or open circuit. The last number of the code tells you which coil wire is malfunctioning. In your case it is coil number 1, which should be the number 1 cylinder. These coils take the place of spark plug wires. there are 2 wires coming off of these coils. One goes to the battery, the other the cars PCM. Check that the connection is good on the spark plug, if that doesn't fix it, then check the wires for a break in the wires. It could also mean that the coil (cop) is no good and will have to be replaced. These coils (cop) are all attached to your spark plugs, so they are easy to find. Good luck.

How to change muffler

If you are JUST changing the muffler , I would suggest you take it your friends house ( you know , the friend who has a lift in his garage , and possibly a coin operated beer dispensor?).
Get it up on the lift (a safty minded placement of a jack and a well placed jack stand would do too ).
Sawzall the pipe imediately in front and behind the exhisting muffler.
Remove the old and replace with the new ... use new clamps... old ones ****!
Take down from the hoist/ramp/jack and stands...
Drive to the cop shop and get that 3 day taken care of.

Miss fire 1 and 5 changed wires and plugs

Probably coil pack. Follow spark plug wire from spark plug to where it plugs in, that is your coil pack.Some are seperatable. Depending on motor size you may have coil over plug. You said wires not (cop) coil over plug boots.If it is coil over plug it is just a boot you changed in that case the coils plug into boots & on plug & an electrical connector. They are seperate for each cylinder.

My 1998 f150 4.6 V8 has the P0303 code, already changed sparkplugs and wires.. any suggestions.??

Try moving the coil to a different plug and see if the code follows the coil. Bad COP (coil over plug) is fairly common problem.

P0351 ingnition coil ciruit problem intermentent problem

1. Disconnect the voltage regulator connection at the alternator assembly and start the engine to see if it runs better or not and to see if the same coil-on-plug (COP) unit codes reset.

2. If the engine operation is good unless the voltage regulator connection is plugged in, it suggests a diode failure of the alternator assembly creating electrical noise.

3. If the engine operation is not any different with the voltage regulator connection unplugged, check the COP unit circuits at the PCM for battery voltage with the ignition switch in the run position and the COP's connected. Perform a wiggle test of the circuits and harness to verify that battery voltage to the PCM cannot be interrupted indicating a PCM failure.
COP 1 is controlled by a Light Green/White (LG/WH) wire at pin 1 of the C175e connector.
COP 2 is controlled by a Pink/White (PK/WH) wire at pin 12 of the C175e connector.
COP 3 is controlled by a White/Pink (WH/PK) wire at pin 24 of the C175e connector.
COP 4 is controlled by a Dark Green/Violet (DG/VT) wire at pin 35 of the C175e connector.
COP 5 is controlled by a Light Green/Yellow (LG/YE) wire at pin 36 of the C175e connector.
COP 6 is controlled by a Orange/Yellow (OG/YE) wire at pin 22 of the C175e connector. 1. There have been a lot of problems with the coil circuit wires breaking inside their insulation near the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) connector, usually within 2" of the PCM. Wiggle test the wiring harness, starting from the PCM and working toward the coil. 1. Verify battery power is present and consistent on the Red (RD) wire of multiple Coil-On-Plug (COP) unit connections.

2. If the battery power supply to the COPs is good, disconnect and inspect the C133 engine harness connector at the top of the engine for a possible connection issue. This connector is a grey 16-terminal connector. It may be behind the rear side of the intake plenum. Service the connection as necessary.

3. Disconnect the PCM connection and inspect the COP unit primary circuits and terminals at the C175E connection. Service the connection as necessary.

4. If the circuits and connections all appear to be in good condition, replace the PCM. Replacement of the PCM will require a programming function to be performed using the Ford scan tool for Passive Anti-theft System (PATS) functions and the PCM is an 8 year/80,000 mile (7/70 for CA state emissions) warranty item.
