just a silly question, when do the bf coils need replacing roughly? and also could it be the cause of my issue?
when i start the car every now and then mostly when the engine is hot and its a very hot day, it will be a little harder to start and sometimes it starts and then quickly stalls, it idles like a dream and has good power but its just the start up issue had me thinking about the coils.

when i say harder to start i mean it will just take a couple extra winds but starts up on all 6 fine. and its only done it 4 odd times in the past fortenite that ive owned it.

could be a fueling issue? dirty injectors?

usually with coils they die and stay dead.

look at fuel filter first, ba/bf coils usually break down under load and normally last 100-150,000kms..

get use to the problematic b series...lol

I'd rather drive an E series than any other newer ford, only because you can see out the back haha. Hate new cars and their ridiculous blind spots! lol
