This is my first post on this forum. I am a typical lurker, always searching for info but not having anything useful to contribute. Thought I'd share my findings for the group.

Have owned this 2002 Sable LS Premium with the Duratec 24V DOHC for about a year, it has 72000 miles on it. Past attempts to fix the rough idle included: new plugs, new plug wires, new filter and new idle air control valve. While I know the new plug wires helped, it wasn't a complete fix. Finally got a check engine light and checked the codes to find it was a "miss on cylinder 3".

Also found the problem was much worse when the A/C was turned on. Based on more research, that led me to replace the ignition coil. I'm very happy to report the car runs great now.

Thanks to everybody who contributes to forums like this. It helps the shade tree mechanic wannabe's like me who want to get some satisfaction in knowing we can often fix our own vehicles.
