Code P0352 after Spark Plug Change
I have a 2000 SE-S with the Duratec and 170,000 miles.
I fired up the Taurus after completing a spark plug change this weekend (including replacing a coolant hose I busted along the way) and I am getting a P0352 code.
Did I do something wrong? Did I miss a connection?
I anti-seized the spark plugs and used di-lectric grease at the outside openings of the coil boots.
I also noticed that at one time, someone couldn't get the screw holding Coil #3 in place, so they inserted a heli-coil. I pulled it out, and had to tap the thing (with the screw still in it) in place. It seemed pretty snug.
I'm hoping I don't have to go back into the rear of that car.
After the work was done on a warm Saturday afternoon, it started up with no code. This cool morning, I received the code.
I guess it's also worth noting that I replaced the plugs with Motorcraft Iridium plugs and that several of the original plugs I pulled out had a fair amount of oil on them. Could that be part of this problem?
Also I did get a P0304 the last rainy day. I haven't yet replaced that coil. I figured it would give me that same code if that were indeed the problem.
