#118 of 166 2002 tbird problems
Jun 09, 2009 (2:59 am)
i have a 2002 tbird that i keep having the same recurring problem with and i can"t seem to find anyone who can understand or fix the problem. i have had to have every one of the plugs and coils replaced at least twice in the last year because of miss fire problems. i have taken the thing to several different dealers here in the tampabay area and none of them can seem to find the problem. i am about ready to sell it and move on, has anyone else had this problem and what is the fix? i love the car otherwise but if i can"t drive it then what good is it?

I truly wish I could help you - mine however, has never had this problem at all..... and from your description, it's hard to see how this could actually be an electrical issue. Any chance it could be a fuel pump or filter?

I assume this car has the COPS (coil on plug) like the Lincoln LS. Common for these to have to be replaced.
However, if they all have been replaced, they should be good for years. Maybe it is another issue and the dealer automatically replaces the COPS because they are usually the culprit when there is a miss?

Is anyone familiar with the engine? Specifically the fuel pump and sensors? Mine is in the shop and at first I was told it needed two fuel pumps, now they are telling me they were wrong, that it only has one fuel pump and two sensors, one regular sensor and an auxiliary sensor.

The solenoid should be mounted right on the starter motor.
