1997 Ford Thunderbird ProblemsExtended Warranty on Ford Ignition Coils
There may be an extended warranty on the ignition coils - see your Ford Dealer for more information-Thanks John B for this information!
The valve cover gaskets may leak oil into the spark plug wells, shorting out the spark plugs, causing a misfire, and illuminating the Check Engine Light. Commonly the spark plugs and ignition coils or wires will require replacement, along with resealing the valve cover to correct this concern.
White smoke coming from the exhaust could indicate that a head gasket has blown or there is a cracked cylinder head. Our technicians tell us that removal and inspection of the cylinder heads will be required to confirm a crack is present.
