COILS

Engine Mechanical problem
2006 Ford Fusion 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 26,500 miles

I have a relatively new car that does not have much mileage. My car stopped in the middle of the street. I was informed that the diagnostic indicated that there is a problem with the coils. The coils need to be replaced. Furthermore, I was informed by the dealer the damage to the coils has caused a problem with my car's computer (PCM). What could have caused this problem? I maintain my car and prior to this incident have had no problems. I also did not notice anything wrong with the car's computer, prior to the car stopping. Also, are either of these repairs considered power train issues?

Hello,

Ok, First the letters PCM stand for Powertrain Control Module.

Next there are a few thing that could cause a no start problem.

Do you have the Codes or can you get them and post them here. That way I can give you a better answer.

Hi Loretta,

Please reply here in forum and note by email. Thanks

Ok, P0300 - is multiple cylinder misfire

P0301 - is a misfire in the number 1 cylinder

There are a number of reasons that can cause the misfire.

Plugs

Wires

Vacuum Leak

and more.

The P0351 IGNITION SIGNAL COIL A FAULT

P0352 Ignition Coil B Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction

P0353 Ignition Coil C Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction

P0354 Ignition Coil D Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction

Ok, the coils may not be bad it may just be the PCM (Computer)

There are tests that can be run to determine the problem.
