Will a ignition coill on a 1997 Mercury Tracer 4 cylinder not get fire to 1 plug and the other 3 work good.

I have a 1997 Mercury Tracer 4 cylinder that has no fire to #1 plug but runs good on the other 3. I've put 4 new plugs and plug wires on it. I put a spark plug in the wire and grounded it and there is no spark, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like the coil pack has failed. Before you buy a new coil pack (around $60 at any auto parts store) check out this website http://easyautodiagnostics.com/ford_coil_pack4/escort_focus_coil_1.php

Run through their directions on how to test the coil pack. Good luck

Need firing order and, I need to know what side the number one piston is on?


To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement.

The 3.5L (VIN H) engine's unique ignition system has the ignition coils directly over each plug. No spark plug wires are used.
If a coil is replaced on any of the 3.1L, 3.4L or 3.8L engines, it may not be numbered, as is the factory coil. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes in your guide to reflect how your engine is wired.
