2004 V10 Wires / Coils

Hey all,

I am absolutely certain that this conversation has been had in the past. however I am wanting to get a current opinion.

My 04 V10 DRW F350 has a cold/wet weather intermittent skip. Not even enough to throw a code. However. Since I live in the northern snow belt I figure it is going to roll out on me about February and in the middle of the worst snowstorm of the year.


I am suspecting coil(s) or wires.


Do any of you have any suggestions on brands, better or worse? Should I just stick with the Motorcrafts since they seem to have held on for 200k?

Sounds like bad boots.
Boot , spring kits are cheap, replace, and use generous amounts of dielectric grease .
Then check harness connectors.
Coils some times go bad, but not that often.

Motorcraft is the preferred brand. As Ashley said above check the boots and springs.

When were the plugs changed last? Should be done every 100k at minimum. I would also recommend o-rings to help seal the plug wells. See link below for more regarding this.
