2006 Mercury Milan Coils

2006 Mercury Milan Coils
2006 Mercury Milan V6 130,000 miles in Jacksonville, FL

Car has bogged down 3 times, it is like no gas and it sputters. I shut if off and let it sit a few and it starts and runs fine. Last time, check engine light came on. Had code read at Auto store and they said 3 bad coils. C,E and F. It looks like the 3 three in the front are easy to do but I cannot see the 3 in the back. Can you tell me what I would need to remove to get at these? Any other tips on doing this would be great. And how do I tell what ones are C,E and F. Any suggestions on where to get these at a decent price would also help. They wanted $129.00 each.

Thank you for your help.

RE: 2006 Mercury Milan Coils
Ok, we're dealing with a 10 year old car so if they tell you 3 out of the 6 coils are failing, do you want to chance doing the job again? IOW, you'd probably should be thinking along the lines or doing them all... and replacing the plugs (and wires?) while you are in there. I mention wires but going from memory I do believe those coils are right on top if the plugs so just a long plug boot for the connection. As for which ones? They are ABC matching 123, so ACE are on one bank and BDF on the other. If you can't get to the rear bank easily you'll probably have to pull the manifold to make room. They'll be mounted the same as the front bank so use your best judgement.

BTW, if you think $129 is a expensive try pricing them at the dealer. You can also get OEM brand parts on-line at Rock Auto and similar. Certainly worth checking first.

Let us know how you make out.

I did order all 6 plus plugs on line, much cheaper. The coils are right on top of the plugs and the 3 front look easy but I have never pulled a manifold so I am worried about doing the back.

Don't let a job like this scare you. Use your phone or digital camera and take lots of pictures along the way, especially noting the locations of anything you are not sure of. If you have the feature you can use short video clips with a spoken note to yourself. Also, a roll of masking tape might be handy to tag wires and hoses as you remove them. If you are not sure what a particular gadget is called then just mark it with a letter or number. Do the same for the hose / wire.... and take pictures to jog the memory for going back together.

Oh, safety first! Always disconnect the battery as your first task.
