plugs. Then I'm not sure one how to plug them back up. But what a great
help this video was. You should do one on what to unplug to get to the #4
coil and how to hook them back lol lol

THANK YOU for making this video... By far the best video on how to replace

for sharing!

Thank you so much! I have searched and searched for a Cylinder 4 video and
this is the only one worth watching! Going to fix mine now! By the way,
there was a SERVICE BULLETIN put out by Ford to double clamp the heater
hose that travels on top of Cylinder 4 on the F-150's. That hose leaks and
causes Cylinder 4 to short out and misfire. Hope this helped someone!

I don't think that would be the coils, The engine will usually run with one
or even two coils down. I would go out and post your symptoms on the forums
@ ford-trucks . com

Author mreinsmith (1 year)
1st cylinder in the front on the driver side

Author mreinsmith (1 year)
Test the coils one by one. Running the engine, unplug the connector from
each one. If the engine starts to slump then that means that ignition coil
is GOOD. if there is no change in engine when you remove the connector,
then that means that the ignition coil is suspect (not firing).

Author dakotabaker98 (1 year)
No problem. Glad I could help! Good luck!

Author MrEricdgreat (1 year)
I am just changing one coil and one spark plug, just the one that is
misfiring.Is that okay also to just change one plug? Thank you vary much,
oh and is it necessary to use the grease?

Would it be smart to go ahead and change the spark plug while you are

Excellent video and good camera man! I have a 5.4L 2001 and have replaced a
Fuel Injector and 2 Coils and just got another P0303. How can you tell that
the misfire is due to a failed coil opposed to a injector?

Author mreinsmith (1 year)
yes, it's OK to just change the one plug while you are in there. I would
definitely dielectric grease. It not only improves the connection but keeps
out moisture as well. You can usually get it in small packets at your auto
parts store.

Author Tony Garza (1 year)
I also have a 2000 ford expedition 5.4 l. I have a sluggish take off on
first gear and thought it was tranny. Changed fluid and filter on it still
doing same thing. Thinking it is ignitioin coil as it idles very low when
in park but does not backfire or has engine light on. Could it be something
different.? Thanks for the video.

Author mreinsmith (1 year)
Yes, and make sure to get the Motorcraft plugs (the OEM for ford)

Author mreinsmith (1 year)
Fuel filter is a good place to start, but it could also be the fuel pump or
an electrical problem. Try talking it over with the people in the forums at
ford-trucks . com.

Author Donnie Thoburn (1 year)
Very helpful, thank you! Coil numbers are 1 thru 4 on passenger bank from
fan to firewall. 5 thru 8 on driver side from fan to firewall. If fuel rail
is removed and does not go back on correctly the orings are stuck in rail,
remove and place back on injector tops. Rail should line back up smoothly.

Author Bruce Ismond (1 year)
Thanks for sharing. I replaced all my coil packs except those back two.
Gonna save those for after my root canal. They sure don't make it easy.
