these engines use a coil on plug system in which each of the 6 plugs have their own igition coil. the plugs are good for 100,000 miles according to the mfgr, which is just as well as the intake system has to be removed to access the number 1,2 and 3 coil/plug units. the number 4.5 and 6 units are on the "front", (left) head and are accessed by the removal of the protective plastic cover (it says "Ford v-6 dohc 24 valve"). taking the cover off will show you the design of the dohc head and the coil/plug units mounted in the center of the top of the head. a connector attaches the cable to the coil and capscrew holds the coil to the head. removing the screw and disconnecting the cable connector allows the coil unit to be very carfully pulled off using a gentle twisting motion to break the gasket seal to the plug. the coil must be disconnected from the cable to allow the coil to be removed due to the long insulator piece that connects to the plug. after all this is done the plug can be removed in the usual way with a plug deep socket and extension. due to the need to remove the intake system, a simple thing such as a plug change should be left to a good shop or an experienced diy person. this info was gained from a haynes manual number 36022, a very good source of info. i have rebult/repaired many vehicles using their products. good luck!! ----------------------------- I found this web site to be an excellent reference for your question. I could not have done the work without it! http://www.ford-trucks.com/article/article.php?id=281 Best of luck!
