Removal & Installation

3.0L (VIN S) Engine

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Unplug the engine control sensor wiring connectors from the ignition coil and the radio ignition interference capacitor.
  3. Tag and disconnect the spark plug wires from the coil by squeezing the locking tabs, then twist the tab and pull upwards.
  4. Unfasten the four ignition coil retainers and remove the coil and the coil ground wire the radio ignition interference capacitor. Save the capacitor and coil ground wire for re-installation of the coil assembly.
  5. Wipe the coil towers with a clean cloth dampened with soap and water. Remove any soap film and dry with compressed air. Inspect the coil for cracks, carbon tracking, dirt or damage and replace as necessary.

      Coil on Plug
      The coil on plug (COP) ignition operates similar to standard coil pack ignition except each plug has one coil per plug. COP ignitions have three different modes of operation: engine crank, engine running, and CMP Failure Mode Effects Management (FMEM).

      Engine Crank/Engine Running

      During engine crank the PCM will fire two spark plugs simultaneously. Of the two plugs simultaneously fired one will be under compression the other will be on the exhaust stroke. Both plugs will fire until camshaft position is identified by a successful camshaft position sensor signal. Only one cylinder (under compression) will fire once camshaft position is identified.

      CMP Failure Mode Effects Management

      During CMP FMEM the COP ignition works the same as during engine crank. This allows the engine to operate without the PCM knowing if cylinder one is under compression or exhaust.

    If you have to wait to restart its usually a faulty coil or ignition module.
    Someone would need to troubleshoot the ignition system when the engine fails to start to proceed. Could be a faulty relay too.

    2002 Ford Taurus-won't start, replaced starter last night, started once, but hasn't since. Battery is good. Any ideas?


    Have you thought of maybe checking the ignition switch that starts your vehicle. A faulty ignition switch will give you the same symptoms as a dead battery or a faulty starter. I hope this helps you out.

    How do I change the coil pack in my 2005 ford taurus


    Welcome to Fixya.

    Here's the procedure how to replace the ignition coil pack of your car.


    •1
    Understand basic safety procedures. Any time you work on your Ford Focus, you should set the emergency brake and disconnect the negative, or ground, cable from the battery. Some mechanics recommend you isolate the cable to prevent accidental contact, which could spark a connection.
    •2
    Release the spark plug wires from the Ford Focus ignition coil pack. You may need to pinch or press a release to unlock the wires.
    •3
    Use a socket set or a small wrench to unbolt the ignition coil connectors. You also need to undo the capacitor electrical connectors. As you work, make note of which connectors go where--this pays off you when you reassemble the parts.
    •4
    Locate the bracket that holds the ignition coil pack and the electrical capacitor in place. Undo the fasteners that secure them.
    •5
    Separate the Ford Focus ignition coil pack from the mounting system. Replace the old Focus ignition coil pack with a new one. Verify the new ignition coil pack works with your engine, even if you use a universal ignition coil pack.
    •6
    Reassemble the parts. If you have a Torque wrench, use it to tighten the ignition coil bolts with 7 inch pounds of torque (10 Nm).

    1995 ford taurus not getting any spark from ignition coil


    the capacitor only stores energy so when high demand is requested acts like reserve to take load off of circuit until the coil is triggered it will not fire with key in run position engine off check for battery voltage @ coil if voltage is present then it,s not being triggered this vehicle should have grey ignition module either mounted on side of distributor or strut tower/firewall area i would bet this is your problem
