Hard to change coil pack...???

Do I need tools? Never changed one before in the Expy. I was going to do it in the parking lot at wifes work.

Yes, you guys suck. I posted this at mercedesshop and they answered with 5 hours. I did it myself anyway. The dreaded #4.

I know where I'll post next time.

That would have been a COP, not a coil pack.

Ok then. This forum is not as fast as some of the other forums out there, but there is still some of the best advice about ford trucks. Ever heard the expression "Good things come to those who wait".

Maybe Ill just post my Ford related questions on clubsi.net, or vwvortex?

I asked a SIMPLE question. If you can't understand it or think I need formation skills I think you need to go back to kindergarten. Looks like I struck a nerve over here.

Well, just an FYI, you need an 8mm socket, ratchet and extension and probably a swivel.

I am glad that you got your question answered though.

Most people usually wait until the next day for a answer to a question. The only question you asked is do you need tools.

I won't even comment on this.

Mister CMK, thanks. It was the awful #4 which I didn't really think was that bad. Apologies if I stepped on anyones toes.

Sorry, I must have missed your post or I would have chimed in quickly.

I agree, the #4 is not as hard to change as some have made it out to be. In fact, once one gets his hand back through all the hoses and wires, there's probably more room around #4 than most of the other COPs.

Honestly though, I wish Ford engineers would WAKE UP one day and design an engine like the Toyota engineers. I have a Sequoia with a 4.7L V-8 that has virtually no encumberances to the top of the engine (which is forward like it should be) in which I could easily change all 8 COPs in less than 20 minutes. Take a look at one some time, this engine compartment is probably less cluttered than my '68 F250's.

Yeah, it was kind of funny. I grew up working on my dad's old GMC Jimmy. So when we first got the Expy I was fishing around looking for the spark plugs behind the front wheels and in between the exhaust manifolds.

thats funny.
