Question about Ford Taurus
If your car fires up, then the spark plug wires and coil wires are properly done. if it is running rough then you may have made one of several mistakes.
you may have needed to "gap" the arc end of the spark plugs (unless they were specifically "pre-gapped" for your particular make and model).
you may have not tightened one of the spark plugs all the way in, allowing too much air to enter the combustion chamber.
worst of all, you may have cross-threaded a spark plug, which would also allow too much air into the compustion chamber. it is usually possibe to re-thread the spark plug hole, using what i believe is called a "tap-and-die", but i have never done this before, so i am not sure if its success rate or difficulty level.
