Brought to you by 1AAuto.com your source for quality replacement parts and the best service on the Internet. In this video we're going to show you how to remove and install a new coil in this 2011 Lincoln Town Car. This has a 4.6L, the same as many of these vehicles. The tool you'll need is a 7 mm socket with a ratchet and extension.

With your 8 mm wrench disconnect your negative battery cable.

Okay, replacing your coil and spark plugs is pretty easy. I'm going to show you on this side; because, it's easier to film and get to. The other side is just as easy. You do just need to remove your intake hose which is three clamps and a couple of hose connections on the back and you remove that whole intake hose and get to your coils pretty easy. Okay, so the coils are held in place by a 7 mm bolt. Get the socket ratchet down on there. It can be a little tough to break loose. I'm just going to get my socket off of here before I get too far. Okay, this connection you just reach underneath and there's a little tab right here. Squeeze that tab and the harness pulls loose. You can just kind of pull your coil up and out like that. This happens to me a lot. I've removed a bolt but it twisted in the socket so it's now stuck. What I do I take a screwdriver or something that fits right up in there. Let's see here, and then I just drop it and basically that usually almost always gets the bolt from the socket. Just make sure you watch where it goes.

Okay original coil. New coil from 1A Auto. You can see pretty much all the same. It has the same connector and everything. Put it right down in. Press it in. Okay your 7 mm bolt. Reconnect your lead, you're all set. Just repeat that for the other seven cylinders. Then reconnect your battery and your engine should be purring like a kitten.
