I did search, and i also surfed through the first 13 pages of post. sorry if this a duplicate
I am looking for tips and ticks to change the rear the plugs and wires on a 2005 Taurus Vin U.
I did some quick checks on it the other day and split some coolant, after replacing the rim my wife bent . Then i took it to the wash bay and sprayed off the engine and washed rinsed the body. Didn't really dawn on me that it was 19 degrees out at the time.
Later that day its got a bad miss and a cel. I know, dumb me for doing this to myself when the car was running fine. I took it to advance and found codes for miss fire, as this was obvious.
I removed and cleared the front 3 plugs and wires. Unplugged and plugged the 2 in the rear that i could reached for sure. The last one i can reach, but not too sure if i can get it off without damaging it (the wire). Removed brought inside and cleaned the ignition coil (saw no cracks)
Car has 92,000, so its due for its first tune up so at this point. I figure i would just replaced Plugs and wires (due @ 1000,000 by the factory book) and possibly the ignition coil if that doesn't work.
