Cougar v6 coil

Hi guys

any one have the same problem,i seem to be running on 5 cyliders, i left car running and pulled off each lead seperatly of the coil pack,5 out of 6 of them caused a spark but one of them makes no difference on or off. Would this be a coil pack and if so is the mondoe v6 coil pack the same.


Cheers

hi and welcome to ukcougar.com,probably is the coil pack but there are different variations on the v6 best check with a dealer for the correct part number for your car first

have a look on ebay as there is always ones on there for sale but might be worth testing you leads for resitance as one might be goosed

Hello and welcome .
Go to your local motorfactors they should be able to supply you an aftermarket one!. IIRC the last one I got was about £90.00.

As Paul says check the leads Something has caused the coil to fail!. This is usually resistance on the high tension side of ignition. Would reccomend go the whole hog and do plugs and leads at the same time!.

The MK11 mondeo will go but I would not reccomend using second hand ignition parts it must be the 4 bolt variety as some come with 3 bolt holes and will not sit on the rocker cover!.
