Question about 2003 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

While changing the spark splugs, I encounter a problem with trying to remove the COP assembly. The screw that holds the cop will just turn in the cylinder head, but not come out. The screw is not stripped, it seems like the metal sleve that holds the screw just truns. Tell me how to get the screw out. Curt Curtis

Need to replace coil pack on number 5 cylinder where is it located please

DTC errors? P0305> right. and can be spark , bad combustion it is. or bad injection (or OMG, bad compression #5) not just Spark
Its a COP, not a Pack unless in Australia. (a pack has 2 or more coils in one, but im guessing USA car. (big world it is)

thats easy, well finding it is , most COP will be stuck there.
put it back with silicon grease this time and it will not stick later.
btw the boots can be replace by sell if bad ( carbon found)
and saves a fortune , not needing a new cop
here is the page showing how. and the parts discounted.

doing a tune ups , does this same act. removing all COPS.
to change spark plugs. (ever consider that spark plug is just bad?)

the answer lies in the fact that the #1 cylinder is the most front cylinder, see that?
1,3,5 is left side, left means drivers seated.
so #5 is left rear. cylinder
as seen here

if the new cop dont fix it; come back and we can find true cause
with simple tests. and cheap tools.

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.

98 expedition 5.4 4x4 with dual a/c..sputters and shakes while idle and driving...please help me ! i have replaced 5 of the 8 spark plugs till i can get to the back 3 (pain in the ****) no change not even...

When you know the symptom who needs codes?And if there was a code it probable say lean bank 02. why simple you have a misfire. the smell rich exhaust the shake and sputter in drive. 2 causes the Expedition suffer from ,An open EGR valve.If you can change a fuel filter and change a spark plug you can test this. when the engine is running and misfire at idle and the vehicle is warmed up and at operating temperature. Turn off engine. Go to the EGR is it hot to touch. because if it is it open and this the the culprit.Another misfrie is from COP (coil on plug.)When you change the spark plug where any of the spark boot torn or worn that spark can go through. Or even a faulty COP will do this .To find it you have the engine running and lift one COP out of the cylinder and listen for a engine drop if the engine RPM drop the COP is good if no change in engine the COP is bad. By the way 600rpm in drive is low

What you have is called a COP. the is known as coil on plugs hence C.O.P they are located on each cylinder they are black in color(well most are) and each of them have a 2 wire connection on it each one is held down with a 7mm screw. If you remove one underneath is a spark plug.

I need to replace my #3 ignition coil and plug. How do do this? 2001 ford f150 supercrew

The Ignition coil is right on the plug ( COP - Coil on Plug ), 8mm head bolt holds it down. Remove the COP, and the plug is right under it. Either use a few extension with universals, or Lisle tool makes a spark plug socket specific to the 2 valve 5.4L motor.
