Asked by Nov 28, 2014 at 01:54 PM about the 2008 Ford Taurus SEL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car ran fine then one day bam it just started bucking, so i pulled into an auto parts
store and got the ignition coil 1 misfire code.. i thought ok i can deal with this. So i
proceeded to work.. i drove it home still bucking. We started to replace the coil and my old
man said " you should flip the coils around so the one in question is easier to get to". I
thought sure good idea. Well now it wont start... and its not like he had me just switch the
one he had me move 3-4 of them around.. so... what can we do to fix this?

The obvious answer is to put thing back the way the were .... Google "Taurus coil Images" and you may find a picture of how the wiring should look. Good luck
