i told him and he said the coil pack for that cylinder is around 80 bucks is that a bad or good price
Do you own a Ford ? If so , do you know what motor you have. Some have CP's while others have COP systems. You haven't fill in your info. The "profile" part of registering that you blew off. Makes it hard to help you when you cut corners. If you don't have the enough courtesy to at least fill the stuff in, then why ask for help?
408 posts and you still say f^ck that? - Well, yea, same to yuh -Good Luck.
Look at my post - upper right hand corner, just fill it in once and you'll never have to again. Not personal info, just your truck and engine size; there's no forgetting that way. Then it's always there with each post.
You need help with that ? Just say the word.
Anyway, you have a bad coil on 6. #6 is a 10-15 minute job to change.
What dabigguy said is absolutely correct btw. - Quick fix is to grab a coil from auto-zone and install it yourself. #6 is easy.
Global Automotive coils are good and cheap, but you'll have to wait 3 days for them to arrive.
I suggest doing them all, but it's a more detailed and time consuming job.
As for removing the all plugs and COPs you need to do a search here and make a decision for yourself.
The #6 cylinder is under the power steering pump reservoir. Unbolt the reservoir brackets from the intake and move it to the side. Unplug the COP connector and remove the hold down bolt that is a 7mm [I think]. After removing the bolt pull the COP up just like a spark plug wire. You may have to turn it to clear the fuel rail. Remember on installing the new one to use plenty of dielectric grease.
Yea, your right torkum, 7mm for the hold downs. 8mm for the fuel rail. The SVT site has the tools listed I believe - extensions and universals + tap . Tap them all specially if you only have one socket the right size.
I guess our tech articles aren't working on this site
