View Full Version : Stripped out coil pack bolt...a problem?

05-08-2004, 04:17 AM
I noticed recently that the top bolt that holds the coil-pack to top of the motor is stripped out completely. I can lift the bolt right out of the hole with my fingers. Probably happened when Ford replaced the coil pack a couple of years ago :mad: The bottom two bolts are the only ones holding it down. Just curious if this could cause a problem at all? Not sure if it needs any extra grounding through that bolt or not. Just trying to get opinions whether or not it is worth fixing.

I think for a while I was only running two bolts in mine. Never noticed a problem. I did however have a problem with my DIS when I first put the head gaskets on. I took it for a drive and over 3k it would stumble. I was like ~~~ I have new plugs, wires, and a billion other new parts (cam and crank sensor as well) so what is wrong. Got back to the garage and I looked at my DIS, I had it held down with four screws cuz I lost the bolts, They were in at an angle and wouldn't sit flat. So I dug around the garage and what not and then I found a bolt the fit so I took it to the parts store to buy 4 new ones in that size, installed them, and boom ran like a raped ape.
