Each time they diagnosed my problem was from a cylinder misfire code. I would imagine if you have one of those events saved in your computer you could push the issue to get that one replaced for free if your still under warranty.

I just worry about how often this is going to happen after my warranty. Anyone have a cost on these?

they retail for around $80.I can get them to anyone on here at a discounted price.I am pushing on the guys at accel to make a coil replacement that fits our application since it fits alot of other lines as well in ford/mercury/lincoln/jaguar/volvo cars.

That would rock! I've been looking for a better replacement option for when I have to replace them on my dime.

Not a problem.I will post a thread up soon for some different manufacturers websites that link to product interest.If everyone would drop an email we may get some new products quickly.


Accel coils
Samco sport silicone hoses for cooling and turbo's
MSD coils

that is just to name a few.

I don't know why I was hoping Ford/Mazda would of fixed the life of the COPs (Coil-On-Plug) before the Mazda6 release, seeing as they stuck us with a problematic fuel pump that they have known about since 1996.

4.6/5.4 Mod motors were the most common of the COP failure, coils starting failing at 60,000 miles, nothing you can do other than replace them and hope you trade the vehicle in before the next 60,000 miles or hope the aftermarket realizes Ford's design mistake.

MSD and Granatelli have Ford COP performance replacements, the question is, are the pins in the right order? Ford uses two style of coil connectors and the only difference is they are reversed as to the wiring.

One of our members here was considering purchasing the MSD coils and an MSD box to go with them. That is the last I heard.

The performance coil replacements currently offered do not work.The have the same plug in but operate differently.I am no expert on electrical by any means,but they have different resistance and a different rating.I have put a whole set of the current accel coils in my car and got alot of misfires.It was not a fun expierience.They were installed correctly,and the car was put on a scope.There are 3 different coil part #'s thru Ford and I have crossed the mazda coil over to the one that fits the Lincoln LS and obviously the 24v Taurus.

Definetly keep me updated on the coils, I'll drop whoever a line. I've been looking at options for improving the ignition system. I know after reading 84FordMan's thread on the MSD box I was sold on going that route. Seems to be the only other flaw would be the coils.

Actually,the msd box might be the way to go with the factory coils for the time being.I will be offline for a few days since i am moving officially tomorrow and will not have internet til this weekend.So i will get some threads going ASAP after that.

More than three different coil part numbers. I checked 2003 model years today (I checked the LS, Mustang GT, Mustang Cobra, Expedition, Town Car and Mazda6).

The Town Car, Expedition and Mustang GT all use the same ignition coils in 2003, however the Town Car uses the same coil boots as the Cobra.

The Mustang Cobra has it's own coil.

The LS 3.0L has it's own coil.

The LS 3.9L has it's own coil.

The Mazda6 3.0L has it's own coil.

I began to wonder where the difference was, why would Ford resort to so many retoolings of the same product, especially from a company that LOVES reusing old parts over and over again. So I checked coil boot numbers:

Mustang Cobra and Town Car, 2062-2
Mustang GT & Expedition, 2061-2
LS 3.0L, 2065-2
LS 3.9L, 2064-2
6 3.0L, 2063-2

It started the gears in my head a-turning when the Town Car uses different boots from the factory, however can use the same coil as the GT, which uses a different boot/spring setup. That tells me the windings and resistance are the same and the connectors are the same between the GT and Town Car.

So 5 different coil part numbers, 5 different boot/spring part numbers, yet some crossover. Yet the aftermarket performance only offers three coils to cover them all. So my question to the person who tried the Accel coils, did you try BOTH the 2V and the 4V coils? How about the 3V coil?
