    2002-2005 Ford Thunderbird and Lincoln LS have a widely known issue with Ignition coils going bad and also fouling out spark plugs causing misfires
    . Just by replacing these components you may be able to bring new life to your engine!

    At the time of this post, 46.99 for an entire set of Ignition Coils! Can't beat that! If you have a 2002-2005 Ford Thunderbird I would buy these just to have on hand because of the history of these going bad! Don't forget to order 8 spark plugs too because the coils foul them out!

    Here is the link http://amzn.to/2ilnIo3

    There is a post here on how to replace or here.

    Important- You may also have a problem with your cowl seal, wiper seal etc, which is causing the coils to fail! You can read more about that in this post.

  4. I just had these replaced on my 04 Tbird. What are the chances they will go bad again? And yes, it was VERY expensive (luckily I had an extended warranty that covered it - but it DIDN'T cover the damage to the spark plugs).

  5. Thank you for the heads up. I have a 2002 and will save a big bill when I need them. Just bought then. Thanks

  7. Ordered 1 set yesterday.
    Got email it would be delivered tomorrow!
    sorry I got last one, but I am sure they will have more soon.

    Since I have had my 2005 Anniversary T-Bird, I have to replace 2 and at that price, I know have spares.
    Unfortunately, I paid dearly for the replacement.

    Is there a post on how to do this replacement?

    You got lucky! I don't think they are going to restock them. There is a post here on how to replace.

  11. Purchased a set, thanks!
    Does anyone know if the service bulletin did indeed cover cars up to 100k miles or did it expire 10 years after the car model year, I.e, 2004 t-bird, cops service bulletin expired 2014?
    Thanks everyone!

    It expired after 10 years which means nobody is eligible now.

    In stock got a set just to have , still $35.99
    In one more month my 2003 will look just like my 1957 will post picture when done.
    I know the 2003 is a great looking car BUT the wife of now 50 years won't drive it, she is to use to APS breaks And Backup cameras and power tops. So this will be my Anniversary Gift to her. She will have the best of both worlds
