Engine Performance problem
1996 Ford Windstar 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 165000 miles

Greetings:

3.8L engine. Misfifing on above mentioned cylinders. Replaced Coil-Pack, Plugs and Wires, 2 Fuel Injectors and ran some water through the vaccuum system to create steam to help clean out any build-ups. All to no avail.

The following tests were performed and passed:
Compression
Fuel Pressure
Spark

My next guess is the ECM, but AutoZone told me that there is an Ignition Control Module that might be the cause, but I have think they are confused, because it's not located anywhere on my vehicle that I can find.

Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.

Sincerely, Doug
