This may cure the problem. What does the code mean?

Check for poor connection at the coil connector.
If continuity is present, then check for resistance between ground and the ignition coil connector. It would be a good idea to check the exhaust for leaks first. They have also been on the phone with the Ford hotline and they are at a loss as well. If not, the problem is likely intermittent. As a result, oxygen sensors are likely to report fuel mixture problems. Depending on what the root cause of the misfire is, you may need several tools. If diagnostics determine an engine misfire which is characterized by leakage through exhaust valve s , only replace the affected cylinder head s.
In this case, if the cam timing is over-retarded, the engine light will be illluminated and the code will be set. Although, modern catalytic converters are supposed to last the life of most vehicles, it could be there is some underlying problem if it has clogged. I had a misfire code for cylinder 3 the other week. When the power loss of a particular cylinder is sufficiently less than a calibrated value and other criteria is met, then the suspect cylinder is determined to have misfired. You should be able to hear an exhaust leak easily underneath of the vehicle. You can pin-point the exact cause of a misfire on your Ford or Mercury 4. Repair as necessary If the engine is misfiring presently, stop the engine and disconnect the 3 coil wiring connector.
This is done most easily from below the car in the area near the oil filter. For most people the first sign that anything is wrong at all is the service engine soon light coming on. Then, by using an illustration like the one in the image viewer to identify which cylinder is the one affected Don't have a scan tool? Misfire is defined as lack of combustion in a cylinder due to absence of spark, poor fuel metering, poor compression, or any other cause. If the fuel injectors are just worn, I suppose that won't help but his car only has 79k miles on it even though it is a 2000. It will also be slightly larger with some rumors suggesting that it may be larger than the new Continental Lincoln.
The new one is not expected to be that way. The hardest part would be removal of the crash bracket on the drivers side rear part of the engine. If there is any significant voltage on that wire then there is a short to voltage somewhere. It turns out a couple injectors leaked fuel into the cylinders. The solution is here : Ford Crown+Victoria P0303 Possible Solution : The crankshaft sensor signals the fuel injection computer or the ignition control when the cylinders are firing. The 2nd generation of the car has been produced between 1997 and 2011 and has been used by police, taxi companies as well as civilians.

I replaced the Coil over the plug with a spare, cleared the code and the car ran great for about 50 miles and 3 days. This causes the ignition coil to provide a spark and the injector to inject fuel into each cylinder at the right time. Once the engine completely warms up, it starts to run normally.
I took it to a local Chevy dealer that i've been dealing with for a very long time that I trust. Instead, it may be built on a bespoke chassis derived from Mustang. Best place to start would be with spark plug and have a look at it. Then start the engine and check for a driver signal to the 3 coil. Over time, they can become clogged. I had the same exact problem on a 2001 last summer.
If either sensor isn't working correctly, the car will run rough and the engine will be less efficient. The magnetic field created by the primary coil windings will collapse across the secondary coil windings, which induces a high voltage across the spark plug electrodes. This means heavy but also very reliable. I havn't looked under the hood of the Crown Vic in a long time, but will this require the removal of the fuel rails? Feb 14, 2011 here's the scoop.
