I screwed up on the order of wiring even when I knew better. Front bank on coil is 564 while rear is 123, the order of cylinders.

Motorcraft plug wires? Dielectric grease used on both ends of the wires? Wires routed correctly and not laying on the exhaust manifolds? What plugs are in the car? Use ONLY the OEM Motorcraft plugs or the NGK equivalent. Hope the plugs are not Bosch. Bosch plugs dont work in Ford engines.

Just checked. Not crosswired, but I tried to get them as isolated from each other as possible. They were close enough that induction was a possibility.

Abject lesson in second rate parts. The p0300 resolved into a miss on all six; the wires are no name, and I haven't had time or money to do new plugs/wires. Anybody on the forum local to Knoxville TN?

What brand coil did you use? Off brands have been known to fail quickly. Don't drive very much because a miss fire will ruin your catalytic converter just as quick.

Autozone electrical parts = JUNK. Get a Motorcraft or BWD coil, and Motorcraft plug wires. Also replace plugs with either the correct Motorcraft plugs or their NGK equivalent. Quality parts cost more, but are always worth the extra price.

As Automender said, fix the missfire quick or dont drive the car until you can fix it correctly, or you will kill the cat converters. Replacing the cats is a PITA compared to coil pack/plugs/wires, and costs BIG $$ for quality parts that will last.

You said the worst respected brand on the forum. Was it a Duralast brand. Could be coil has failed or your wires but seems funny to has spread to all cylinders so I would say coil. Try returning, did it have a warranty?

Lifetime warranty. I don't get the hate for AutoZone stuff. Reliable as gravity, about 40% of my Crown Vic came from there.
