Finally have my car registered and ready to go and now im having yet more issues. The car was shuttering and at first I thought it may have been the tranny acting but then I noticed that the engine itself was acting rough when I pulled over. I drove the car home to find not only that but my rear brake caliper is stuck and was smoking my brakes ARG...

Any way, I know how to fix the caliper but when I used my neighbors code reader it popped a P0354 code showing it as "Coil D primary/secondary circut malfunction". Now I cant for the life of me find a diagram that shows which coil is coil D. Also could a bad spark plug throw this code or is it for sure a bad Coil? This car is starting to become a PIA....

Passenger side last plug near the firewall is #4 (D).

It can be an open (the connector unplugged), a short, the coil might be bad, or the wiring to it.

Well called my neighbor and he told me I can use his code reader again tomarrow so im going to switch that coil with another one and see if it continues to throw the same code for that COP or if it changes with the COP D to the new location to eliminate wiring issue. As long as its the coil itself then I will be getting a new one in the near future.

It sure is nice knowing some one that has a code reader though lol.

Yeah, that is the best way to troubleshoot it if you have easy access to a code reader.

I generally use my XCalII to read codes on my Fords. I have a cheap ELM Scan that I use on non Fords, but it is an interface for my laptop, I do need to get a simple stand alone code reader as well.
