tbh you started it as far as i can see
it was never aimed directly at you about owning a BA. you just had to have your input

so your saying that every coil is just gunna s**t itself within a few weeks of each other?

doubt it. replace the missfiring ones. bet Ford wouldn't tell a customer that "one is missfiring but you should replace them all"

its already been said
if one has failed, they are all likely to fail close to the same time because they generally last about 100,000 k's.

ford wouldnt recomend you change them all because they want you to book it back in for diagnosis so they can charge labour again

indeed. but seems strange that they'd last less than the plugs. aren't the intervals 150k?

i have VE's at work that come in with 180k+. original coils

LOL, thanks wildeb for ur advice, i dont see how ur "as if so expensive" comment could cause such drama, but for the record u are right, it can be a somewhat pricey exercise changing all 6 plugs and all 6 coils, depends on how much u pay for them though, i got mine fairly cheap $288 for a set of 6 coils and $77 for the plugs, so $365 all up, which to some can be expensive but i see that as reasonably priced, ive seen ppl pay $100 for EACH coil x 6 = $600, and as much as $100+ for plugs, so i can see how you think it is an expensive exercise, but with a little research and some looking around ( and ur mates trade discount card :wink: ) you can find your self a bargain, but thankyou to everyone who made an effort to help me out...
