IF you very own a V6 gas Ranger, nevertheless of the year or the engine dimension they have actually a many things in common and just a few differences.All V6 Rangers have actually the same firing order, yes the 2.9, 3.0 and also 4.0 of every years. The firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6.If you space looking under the hood from the prior grill, on your left side are cylinders 1, 2 and also 3 in that order and on the appropriate side you have actually 4, 5 and also 6 in that order. Cylinders 3 and also 6 are closest come the firewall, cylinders 1 and 4 are closest come the front of the truck where you room standing.In the at an early stage distributor motors the rotor transforms clockwise looking in ~ the top, it should allude at #1 wire around where the compression hit is top top cylinder #1 and from there clockwise 4-2-5-3-6 have to follow in the order.Then comes digital ignition :).From approximately 1990 to 2011 in the USA the V6 ranger only used 2 various coils. It is unsure why there were 2, if you recognize what they execute you can interchange them yet do not try until you have read the entire article. There are coils with the socket because that the plug allude upward (referred to as vertical) and also some pointing exterior on the side (referred to together horizontal). The safest means if you room unclear is to buy the one spicy in the very same direction that come off her truck. But the horizontals are usually easier to find than the verticals, there must have actually been more of them produced. It is provided meets demand.The an easy electrical diagram for the coil is below, the is supposed to show an ext what the coil go than details wiring but even if girlfriend don"t typically read schematics it provides perfect sense:So yes, every plug fires twice as frequently as it demands to. 3 and also 4 fire at the very same time always, 2 and 6 fire at the very same time, 1 and 5 fire at the exact same time.Looking in ~ the coil, you will check out 3 rows the 2 sockets each, the horizontal is shown here:There are just 3 coils in this pack. Look at the numbers compared to the schematic above.If they reach you deserve to take the plug wires off the coil and also exchange 3 v 4, and/or 2 with 6 and/or 1 through 5 through no adverse results to the engine running. The wires could not with the various other location yet if the does it will still run.Here"s where it gets tricky... This is the vertical plug coil:At very first glance you say "hey every the wires room in the exact same place!" yet look at where the plug walk in. The "IGN START/RUN" is on the exact same side the the tab in both coils yet the "CD2 and also CD1" are inverted in the pin order with CD3 gift in the same ar on both plugs.Ford threw a wrench in to this too! here is why.. (read carefully) CD3 actually is the connection to fire the facility 2 sockets labeled 2 and also 6. You would certainly think since it is labeled CD3 it would certainly go come 3 but it does not.So does CD1 go to 1 and also 5 or go CD2 walk to 1 and 5 in the diagram? candid I have no idea! i will cut one open up eventually yet for swapping purposes it doesn"t matter.For one of two people coil the center 2 spark plug wires continue to be the same. If you eliminated a vertical plug coil from her V6 and put a horizontal plug coil on the end of necessity or lack of availability, you take the spark plug wires that space on 1 and also 5 and also switch them v the persons on 3 and 4.In the various other direction if you have a horizontal plug coil and also all girlfriend can find at the scrap yard is a vertical style to change it with... You take the spark plug wires that are on 1 and 5 and switch them through the ones on 3 and 4. Same precise thing!If anyone knows for certain which 2 CD1 and CD2 goes to please add to this thread. The very first truly blown one ns come across I will cut it in fifty percent and recognize for sure.So over there you have it, this is not theoretical I actually did this and it does without doubt work. ;)____________________Truth sounds like hate because that those who hate truth.00 XLT 4WD RCSB 3.GO!
