IF you very own a V6 gas Ranger, regardless of the year or the engine size they have actually a many things in common and also just a couple of differences.All V6 Rangers have the same firing order, correct the 2.9, 3.0 and 4.0 of every years. The firing stimulate is 1-4-2-5-3-6.If you room looking under the hood native the former grill, on her left side are cylinders 1, 2 and 3 in that order and on the right side you have 4, 5 and also 6 in the order. Cylinders 3 and also 6 are closest come the firewall, cylinders 1 and 4 room closest come the front of the truck where you space standing.In the early distributor electric motors the rotor transforms clockwise looking in ~ the top, that should allude at #1 wire about where the compression stroke is top top cylinder #1 and from over 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. The is uncertain why there to be 2, if you understand what they perform you can interchange them but do not try until you have actually read the entire article. There room coils with the socket for the plug allude upward (referred to together vertical) and some pointing external on the next (referred to together horizontal). The safest means if you room unclear is come buy the one pointed in the exact same direction that come off your truck. However the horizontals are usually less complicated to find than the verticals, over there must have been an ext of lock produced. Supply meets demand.The simple electrical diagram because that the coil is below, it is supposed to show an ext what the coil does than specific wiring however even if friend don"t typically read schematics it provides perfect sense:So yes, every plug fires twice as regularly as it needs to. 3 and also 4 fire at the very same time always, 2 and also 6 fire in ~ the same time, 1 and 5 fire in ~ the same time.Looking in ~ the coil, you will watch 3 rows the 2 sockets each, the horizontal is shown here:There are only 3 coils in this pack. Look in ~ the numbers compared to the schematic above.If they reach you can take the plug wires turn off the coil and also exchange 3 v 4, and/or 2 through 6 and/or 1 through 5 through no adverse results to the motor running. The wires can not with the other location but if that does it will certainly still run.Here"s whereby it gets tricky... This is the vertical plug coil:At very first glance you to speak "hey all the wires space in the very same place!" yet look at wherein the plug walk in. The "IGN START/RUN" is top top the exact same side the the tab in both coils however the "CD2 and CD1" room inverted in the pin order through CD3 being in the same location 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 labeling 2 and also 6. You would think since it is labeled CD3 it would go come 3 but it go not.So go CD1 go to 1 and 5 or go CD2 walk to 1 and 5 in the diagram? candid I have actually no idea! ns will reduced one open up eventually yet for swapping functions it doesn"t matter.For either coil the middle 2 spark plug wires stay the same. If you eliminated a vertical plug coil from your V6 and also put a horizontal plug coil on out of necessity or lack of availability, you take it the spark plug wires that are on 1 and 5 and also switch them through the people on 3 and also 4.In the other direction if you have a horizontal plug coil and all girlfriend can find at the scrap garden is a vertical style to replace it with... You take the spark plug wires that room on 1 and 5 and also switch them with the people on 3 and 4. Same exact thing!If anyone to know for certain which 2 CD1 and also CD2 goes to please include to this thread. The first truly swollen one i come across I will cut it in fifty percent and know for sure.So there you have actually it, this is not theoretical I actually did this and it does undoubtedly work. ;)____________________Truth sounds prefer hate because that those who hate truth.00 XLT 4WD RCSB 3.GO!
