my car wont start now after replacing bad coil


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?

1 Answer


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
