Although I have not used this particular part, I have used ACDelco ignition parts on my Astro vans with great success.

I think one of my COPS was replaced by the PD with an AC Delco, but I can't remember.

If you need new COPS because of misfiring, take them apart, clean the springs, boots, and contact at the bottom of the COP and then put some electric grease on each end of the spring and put them all back together with new spark plugs (or at least clean your old ones).

Mine was misfiring on all the passenger side cylinders because of my heater return hose blowing off and spraying coolant everywhere. The coolant managed to get past the rubber boots and in each plug valley there was a pool of coolant up to the tops of the spark plugs. And it also washed all the di-electric grease out of the COPS.

I cleaned them all out this way and then put it all back together and no more misfiring. Saved me a ton of money.

Yeah i have done all that. I had a manifold failure that filled my plug wells to the brim. My coils are just old and tired. They are originals with 148k on them, and have been flooded more than once. Car actually runs pretty well, but i have a random rough idle and bucking under load.

I plan on getting motorcraft parts anyway i was just wondering if anyone knew about these. Might save someone some money if they are any good. Thanks for your advice!

...there was a thread here, somewhere, where the guy was able to find a website selling authentic Motorcraft COPs (the unlabeled ones that fleet managers get) for a ridiculous price. You might want to investigate...

Yeah i have that book marked. My only reservation about them is no warranty. I found original motorcraft coils with 1 year warranty for 31 bucks each, so im probably going to go with that.

Junkyard price is a ridiculous price (savings!). $28 each isn't all that ridiculous.
