Welcome to CEG I would recommend OEM wires and plugs,coil or Autolite versions. This topic was about the V6 Duratec, but I imagine the same applies to the Mondy 2.0 Zetec. Go ahead and start your own topic, it will be easier to keep track of, and you will get better answers.

regarding brands magnecor seems to be very good from your posts but i dont think i can buy them around here so my options are stock, ngk or bosch ..

thx




Generally the most common reason for a misfire is spark plugs/wires/coil. So in response to your question.. probably should have been the first group of things you should have replaced.

fair enough, I'll try it tommorow, thanks pete..if my wires are legit then it obviously has to be my plugs then correct?




Most likely...I replaced my plugs once with the brand new coil and they foiled again. I took the coil back under warranty and am now running a brand new one in my 3L, with new plugs, and the old magnacores.




voltage seems fine..so i guess its off to getting new plugs..i have autolites in at the moment so which ones should I go with now?




anyone?

New Autolite double platinums, or Motorcraft equivalent. Pep Boys has them. I had one not thread in because of a "fat" weld on the ground electrode. Avoid Bosch in these cars.

I have champions in at the moment with no issues. I will say tho, that all my misfires were under autlite dbl plats. Coincidence, perhaps, but who knows...

They make double platinum and Iridium for the SVT (www.championsparkplugs.com.) That's a famous brand, hope it runs perfectly afterwards! Use some silcone grease on the plug boots and make sure your socket wrench is clean, to avoid misfires.

my car just started doing this on Easter on the way back on a 3 hour trip from my parents house.

We just recently rebuilt the engine.. it has almost 2k on it now.. ran perfectly on the way there.. only random issue I ever had prior was a high idle at times..

New Ford Racing wires
New Autolite Double Plats

You think I should swap the coilpack? it is the original but I do have a spare from a cougar I bought for spare parts. Also, we didn't replace the fuel filter.. umm, who the hell knows how old that could be.

I kept thinking that I got bad gas ... as the only thing I did once we got to my parents house was fill the tank prior to parking it.. I added 1/2 tank of premimum from a pump that was rusty and I thought perhaps I might have been the only person who used premimum in like.. forever.

In the 3 hour trip we misfired 2 times pretty badly where the tach went down to about 500 rpm's while attempting to go 60 mph.. and then about 4 other smaller misfires..

It sat all day yesterday.. I tried to take it to the pet store and immediately it started misfiring again pretty badly..

Mine seems to misfire bad on a cold engine but lessen when warm..

ideas? thanks in advance.. I really love this car and it kills me that its again sitting in my driveway not being driven
