    Default V6 cylinder numbering

    Hey guys, just a quick question, what's the cylinder order on our v6? Not the firing order, just the actual cylinder numbers lol. I did some searching on 6crew and on google and google came up with the 3.0 as

    1-2-3 back bank

    4-5-6 front bank

    *Front of vehicle here*

    Is that right? I came up with a cylinder 5 misfire today and I just want to make sure before I check it out after work tonight. Really hoping I don't have to remove the IM. Thanks anyone that can answer

    There should be a number on a sticker wrapped around the wire leaving the coil. They are kinda flimsy and fall off easily though.

    Classic Ford numbering system.

    rear bank is bank 1.


    95% of the time or better, the Bank 1 is the bank that hold Cylinder 1

    changed out my #3 coil in 15 mins well my wife warmed up her car, she laughed and said glad I dont have to do all that on my G to replace a coil. Checked here first to verify I was doing #3 and not #1........ better to check than have to do it twice.

    shits are 70 bucks now at the autozone. brother is order 2 sets of 4v plugs for me today..... I should never have a coil issue again.

    Got a CEL this AM on the way to work. Took off from a stop and hit 60 in 2nd gear and the CEL popped up. AZ pulled the code and, thankfully, it's cylinder 4 misfire. This happened once before at WOT about a year ago, so I'm pretty sure I don't need to replace the COP or plug...but if I do, at least it's easy as hell to replace.

    Glad this is stickied.
