DIY, remove and replace the ignition coil on your Ford Taurus, the model produced in the year 2001, equipped with the six cylinder engine. This repair is very simple and it will require a 7 mm socket wrench with a ratchet and extension, a new ignition coil from your local auto parts store, a marker pen and about 15 minutes.
You can start the repair by opening the hood of your car. You will locate the ignition coil and the spark plug wires just above the engine, as you can see in the image below. Use a marker and mark these wires because you will have to install them back in the exact same order.
After you do it, you can remove them one by one. You will then notice that the coil has an electrical connector that must be unplugged and is held by three 7 mm bolts, as seen in the picture below.
At this moment, you can replace the old coil with a new one. You just have to install it above the engine and secure it with the bolts. Plug back the electrical connector and the spark plug wires in the correct order. These are the steps you need to follow, if you wish to remove and replace the ignition coil on your Ford Taurus, made in the year 2001.
