Want to buy my extra set? I have 1 extra set in addition to the ford racing wires.. plus I could also pilfer another set of ford racing ones off the Cougar if needed - I had a misfire episode at CF last year and they tested fine.


BTW -- how should a coil pack look? should all the inner socket holes be clean and metal looking? each of the packs I have a little of white corrosion inside a few of them. The one I took off had 1 with white power inside and the one I put on had 2.

Yup, mine is misfiring at the exact same RPM also.

You pay for shipping to you and back and you can borrow a set of mine as long as you return them or pay for them if it solves your problem.

Bummer, but at least it helped to regap and grease. Just get new stock wires when cash flow allows, install carefully with the silicone grease, clean socket and proper wire arrangement. Good luck. BTW, I found the snaps very stiff to get the wires on the plugs, worth checking.

I either have a bad injector or the wiring/computer is going bad. I keep losing #3 cylinder. It started with an intermittent miss at high speeds in overdrive. It probably was there at lower speeds, but the gear ratio/rpm combo was hiding it. When the car is in OD the engine is working at a lower rpm with no reduction so the loss of one cylinder is more noticable. I'm taking it apart this weekend.
