I'm pretty sure the coil pack on my 99 Taurus SE is the cause of my cold start misfires and random misfires when idling. Can you guys recommend a brand that's OEM fit and won't break the bank?

Thanks!

P.S. I don't know if the coil pack there is original or not, but it has the Motorcraft logo on it along with the numbers for each cylinder. It looks like the attached photo, except mine has a white cover where the logo is.

I'm not sure the brand really matters when it comes to the coil pack. I replaced mine a while ago and at the time couldn't wait for it. Ended up getting it at Autozone. About 30k later, it's still working fine. Might be cheaper at rockauto if you can wait for it.

I'm parting out a 97. I still have the coil p/n# F5SU-12029-AA. $10 plus shipping if you're interested.

There are performance coils at Shosource. I would stay away from the accel coilpack, but the MSD is supposed to be good, or you can stick with Motorcraft.

I also have a 1999 Taurus 6 cylinder 3.0 SE. Found a misfire in #6 and car has over 165,000 miles on original plugs (I got the car as is) so I just installed Iridiums and a new wiring kit and coil. It was recommended that since I was replacing the plugs and wires that the coil should be replaced as well, and given the year of vehicle and the mileage already on her I decided to go the whole route. Total cost of everything was $78.00. Yes, the coil is white and you can get it at any AutoZone. It costs $12-$17 less than anyone else and it is the same. Just make sure you don't get the black one. Mine cost $22 and change. Hope this helps.:)

Try to stick to Motorcraft when it comes to the coil. Aftermarket coils tend to suck on these cars. Even supposed "Performance" coils such as Accel are terrible quality.

The only 2 names that should be synonymous with this vehicle's ignition system is Motorcraft or Screaming Demon.

AFAIK MSD doesn't offer a coil.

Your coil was only $22 at Autozone? Do you have a part # for it? I'm assuming it was in a Duralast box, correct? Thanks,

Go with the Motorcraft. You know it will be a quality OEM replacement and won't have to worry about it being cheap or made incompatible for the setup.
