have a look at your coils, if there a bit stuffed they will have like acring marks on them/ white lines if you know what i mean from them breaking down. aternativly you could start it up and pull one out and see if it runs worse and if not its definatly a dud coil

if a coil is stuffed or on its way out the car will stutter and miss under load or loose a cyl all together...

leave that black cover off. start it up and disconnect a coil one at a time. the one that doesn't make the car run any worse is your faulty one

imo, change the plugs and change all 6 coils.. otherwise in a few weeks or maybe a month one of the other coils will fail..

no not really, its something that normally only lasts about 100'000 kms (sometimes longer) the same with the plugs, they are iridiums and also need changing at 100'000km intervals/ thats usually about 5 years of normal driving..
and more than likely as 2 have failed the rest will soon follow..
and ford recently were selling these from between $40-$70 each,
imo if you cant afford the maintanance you cant afford the car... :)

lol true troyman, they cost me $48 each with my mates trade discount card from repco, but it makes sense, in the coming weeks i may aswell replace the other ones too, but i have already changed the plugs about 10000ks ago.. good ones too, NGK long life iridiums. thanks for the advise

Well why make the "as if so expensive" comment Wilee coyote or what ever your number plates mean?
Just another useless post from yourself. Its not constructive funny etc it is just a waste.
Maybe you are not hated on Boosted etc due to your number plates , painted garnish , suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome etc like you think.
Maybe it is just because you are a dud.
I used to think that you were being a bit hard done by as I know what some of the boosted boys are like (I have had a couple of minor issues with a couple over the years) but the more I read of you you are actually a twit.

Did you get WILDEB because WANKEB wasnt available?
