Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the ignition coil on this 2003 Mercury Mountaineer with the 4.6L V8 engine. The items you'll need for this include a new ignition coil from, and 7mm and 11mm socket with a ratchet.

Start off by removing these two 11mm nuts. We'll fast-forward as Mike does that. Now lift the cover up and you'll feel it release from the bracket. Pull it forward and then just open up this clip and pull the hose free and your cover's free.

The 4.6L V8 has a coil for each cylinder. On this side pretty easy to get to: one, two, three and four. Over here on this side you can pretty easily see that one that's here in the back. If you wanted to get to either one of these two here, you remove this screw and pull this from there, and you can pull these hoses off. Then the front one is right in here. Now just remove the 7mm bolt that holds it in place. Push the tab on the harness and disconnect it. Then pull the ignition coil up, bend it to the side, and then lift it up and out. The boot may stay behind if your ignition coil is in rough shape, so use a pair of pliers, reach in and pull the bottom of the coil up and out.

On the left is the old ignition coil; on the right is the new one from 1A Auto. You can see they're identical, and they'll fit exactly the same.

Take your new ignition coil and feed it down into place, and back underneath your fuel rail. Once you've got it lined up replace that 7mm bolt and just start it by hand, and then tighten it up with your socket and ratchet. Reconnect the harness and then repeat for any of the other coils that you might want to replace.

Once you've replaced whatever one you want to replace, put the cover back in place. Put the hose back on the back and clip it in place. Line up the two bolts in the front. Once you do that you can push the clips down there in the back, then put those two 11mm nuts back in place and tighten them up.
