Coil packs. Several

2001 Ford Escort ZX2, 40,000 mi.
Cranks but doesn't start, code says new coil pack, but SIX coil packs later, still won't start. Is there something "burning out" coil packs. When new one is installed, starts once, dies, never starts again and re-displays bad coil pack code. Have gotten car to run for a few months on a coil pack from old Explorer, but all new ones are useless. Must be something burning them out?
Thanks in advance. Don't want to install another one until this is solved.

I would say it's time to get it to the Ford dealer for a diagnosis, could need testing on the circuits involved and there's probably only so far you can go without specialized tools.

I finally got a coil pack mady by Motorcraft that works. There is apparently a problem with these as only 2 in 10 have actually been working parts.
Thanks for all your time and input
