Ignition coils

(1999 Ford Crown Victoria)
in Encinitas, CA on July 29, 2010
One ignition coil went bad in May and another this month- July. My mechanic recommended replacing all seven of them since he said that after 100,000 miles (I have 118,000), they will all eventually wear out -- probably sooner rather than later. Doing them all at once also saves on labor costs. Is he right?

Thank you! I'm grateful experts like you take the time to respond. You've given me new confidence in my mechanic. By the way, I did have all the remaining ignition coils replaced in July and figure I save a bundle on labor costs--just as you said I would.

Thanks again!

Those coil packs are VERY common failures in ALL OHC Ford V8s and V10s. Do it now, and save yourself alot of trouble. The labor cost for 8 isn't much more thn for 1, unless you do them one at a time.
