Running rough

My wife's car (04 ford Taurus 3L duoteck ) has been running rough and now the check engine light came on borrowed a code reader from a friend and there was 4 faults

128 - coolant temp below thermosat regulating temp
301 - cylinder 1 missfire detected
316 - missfire detected 1st 1000 rev
354 - ignition coil D primary/secondary circuit malfunction

If anybody can give me some advise as to how to get this car running a little better before I atempt to take this vehicle on holidays.

Re: Running rough

I'd start with the missfire on cylinder #1. Have the plugs been changed lately? It could be the coil. You could try switching with a easier one and see if the missfire follows.

Hello and good day:

This sounds like you have a bad Coil Pack on #1...I would replace the Coil Pack, and Replace the Thermostat...Rarely does the Sensor on the Thremo Housing go bad...If you get other OBDII Code one that it's that Sensor.

Good Luck and good repairing Sterling_6
