You need the key. Remove the plastic shroud around the ignition. Insert the key, Turn the ignition to the accessory position. Look about 1 and 1/2 inches down the top of the ignition and you will see a square hole. Use something to depress the retainer and pull the ignition out. Put the new ignition in the accessory position and insert where the old one was. If you do not have a key the ignition cylinder will have to be drilled. If you are not sure how to do this. DON'T DO IT!!! Call a locksmith. Also I read in another post similar to this one and in the answer someone wrote, use a puller and pull the ignition. Do not do this. The metal surrounding the ignition cylinder in this car is a very soft pot metal and can be damaged, therefore making matters worse, by not allowing your new ignition to stay in or not go in at all. I've been a locksmith for 17 years and service anything from file cabinets to high security safes and everything in between, so when I say do not attempt unless you know what you are doing, it means presicely that. Good Luck!!!!

Remove the dog-house, drill out the rivets holding the original ignition coil, replace coil using bolts or new rivets. Before changing I would test it, not a common failed part. Though the distributor gear is a very common wear item on these vans, I would check that. Also might be cheaper to replace the distributor instead of just the gear.

What would make a 1996 Ford Taurus Missfire really bad. I have replaced the spark plugs but still misses at idle and high speed.?

My experience with Taurus ignition systems tells me that you should test your wires for resistance. If they check out, I would look next at the fuel injectors. If they are fine then you are looking at the ECM/ignition controller as the possible culprit. That is my list in order of expense and difficulty. I hope that helps.

I would have the ignition itself replaced. These go out all the time and will leave you stranded. Get a new ignition keyed to your current key and you won't have to do programming. A locksmith can do this for you. Do it soon though before it stops turning.
