The coil should be labeled with the cylinders near each post. the back three cylinders are 1-2-3 and the front three cylinders are 4-5-6.

Replacing coil in 2001 ford taurus

Disconnect all 6 spark plug wires from the coil twist them while you pull up is the best way to take them off. To make sure you are putting the same wire back in the same spot on the new coil I would take a few pieces of masking tape and label the spark plug wires as you remove them and make a little diagram of the coil pack and which wire goes where that way when you put the new coil in you won't have any issues with mixing up the order of the wires on the new coil. I just use a marker on the coil and number the 6 spots and then label a piece of tape to the wire number and do this 1 at a time. then just disconnect the wiring harness attached to the back of the coil and remove the three bolts holding the coil down and its ready to replace. My advice is to have the new coil ready before you unhook the old one. This saves a lot of problems when making sure you hook up the wires to the right terminals when your hooking up the new coil. One of my rules when I am working on anything on my car is I now label things and take a quick picture of it before I take anything apart that way I always have a picture or two of the area i am working in it might sound like a waste of time or not necessary but it will always make up for it in the end if you ever have questions about the location of any of the parts your taking out or how to install it.

I would like to know how to change sparkplug wires on my 2005 ford taurus

A fairly simple job, get you new wires laid out on the bench, remove 1 wire at a time, match up the length to a new one, put the new one in place, go to number 2, etc. I wouldn't think that a 2005 would need spark plug wires, but my ford seemed to eat them up. Every time something went wrong, it was the plug wires, the only thing not covered by the warranty! And they cost over $300 to replace every time!!! Hope this helps.

Rewired ford taurus spark plugs and when turns on it jumps what could i have done wrong?

If you replaced the distributor cap then there is a high possibility that you put the wires in the wrong firing order on cap.

If all you did was replaced the plugs, then I would pull each one out and recheck the Gap sizes with a feeler gauge. Also check to see if the spark/coil plug wires are touching metal or each other, which can cause the spark to arc out of the wire and never get to the spark plug. If I suspect an arc and do not see a physical problem, I wait until nighttime and look under the hood while engine is running...they stick out like a sore thumb. Also make sure that you did not put the wrong plugwire to the wrong spark plug.

When you change your plugs, you should also replace wires, cap and rotor.
