I have a 2002 sable with the 3.0 OHV and it is misfiring on cyl #2 and #3. I have done new wires and plugs!! The guy I just bought it from says he put a new coil on it a few months ago!! What else should I check and is it normal to hear a slight ticing from the coil??

Spray the coil down LIGHTLY with a salt water mixture at night and see if you see arcing, of course that is after you check to make sure the wires are on the coil securely. Ticking from the coil is NOT normal.

Replace the coil with a quality unit (i.e., not some no name junk from the discount parts store.

Napa is my choice for ignition parts, I've been burnt too may times with AZ junk. That place is a only source emer. choice only for me.
