2005 Ford E250 - Coil packs

coil packs burning up,

5.4 liter V8?

Yes, the coils frequently fail on this design

I suggest replacing all plugs and coils at the same time

That way, you won’t be doing them one at a time, over the course of months or years, which really gets annoying

Hi, of course I forgot to mention that it’s the #2 that “burns” the coils, not blows it out, burns it, same one, three times, test drive lasted one mile , twice.

  mechanics say they have never seen a coil burn up like these. Thanks for the response!

and, yes, 5.4 V-8
