Help my 05 Ford 500 won't stay running

Asked by Jun 11, 2017 at 02:01 PM about the 2005 Ford Five Hundred SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had a mouse that ate into my wires on my coil
pack on the front left of my engine. So my car was
running but acting like it was misfiring. I had a
friend come and he replaced all the spark plugs
and coil packs on my engine. Now my car will start
and run for about 10 sec and shut off. What can it
be? He says now it's the catalytic converter or a
fuel issue? It didn't have any problems before he
messed with it except the wire the mouse ate into.
