Replace plugs & coils or just plugs?

Having the issue where the car is starting to jerk/chug under load. Last TRex, we changed the plugs and fixed it.
It's been a while since last time, so I'm asking. Should I get the kit and replace coil packs as well as plugs?

Re: Taurus X vs. Freestyle

Taurus X is by far the better car, better engine... Just remember the Taurus X uses 3.5 with internal water pump - can be pocketbook killer to R&R the pump (or entire engine when coolant dumps into oil pan). So I'd say different engine, not better. Had this happen with our TRex - 08 Limited.. Ran l...

Re: Dreaded Water Pump Failure... help?

That's encouraging! We absolutely love the car, but don't want to waste money on it. I'm gonna have it checked then and go from there. Thanks!

Dreaded Water Pump Failure... help?

I have 2008 Taurus X Limited that has experienced H20 pump failure (I think). High miles (280k), yet impeccably maintained by previous owner, and I've done my best to keep it up. Car looks and drives like a dream, until the other day. I noticed it seem to lose a little power, and made an odd noise, ...

Re: 2008 TX Transmission question

OK, resurrecting a really old thread here!!! I have a TRex we bought that has been carefully cared for by previous owner. 250K highway miles (long commute). We are having the shifting problem listed here. Is there anything to having it "flashed"? What about an aftermarket fix that is better than dea...

Re: Taurus X owners with high miles speak up! :-)

Real quick, if I am going to change the plugs
- NGK G Power vs Motorcraft?
- reuse upper manifold gaskets?
- buy new coil boots?
- torque on upper manifold necessary?

Sorry for all the questions, but appreciate any help

Re: Taurus X owners with high miles speak up! :-)

New Taurus X owner here. Bought on Tues, took on small road trip today. Seems to have the spark plug issue (hopefully). When we test drove, had our mech check out, no issues. But since have noticed a "chug" that has slight jerk to it at 45-65 mph or so. It seems to occur when in OD, and lightly acce...
