where is the number 6 cylinder located. Coil pack is bad and want to try to fix it. on 2003 Lincoln LS

the check engine light is on and it's skiping. I took it to the auto parts store and it checked that the number 6 coil pack is bad. I know it's in the back but which side. The drivers side is easier to get to. Any advice?

Ignition coils do fail on this engine. Check this link for the firing order of your vehicle, http://www.wellsve.com/custom_searches/ds_firing.php Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info. There is also a company that independent auto repair shops buy their information from that the same information inexpensively to do it yourselfers. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online

from expierence, I would replace all the coils as Pat said, they are known for failure. it would be wise to do it now rather than one at a time over the couse of time. Roy

I had to order two of them. not enough in stock at the parts store. However the problem was the number six and I did get it replaced and it runs like a new kitten. Will replace the rest when they get here. Thanks for the help.
