Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1999 Ford Mustang that blew a cooling hose which we replaced along with the thermostat. The car now is running very rough at times and won't excelerate. When you shut the car off and restart it runs fine for a short while and then repeats the same issues. We plan to replace the water pump as preventative maintenance. We are getting an engine code of P0353. Which is ignition coil or spark plugs. Please advise before we spend more money on replacing items that don't need to be replaced.

First thing I would look at it, is since you blew a coolant hose, I suspect coolant got all over the engine bay into the area of the coil wiring and is causing your issue. Wipe down and dry out the engine bay, and all wiring and connectors.
