            Will a coil break down from high heat,after running on a Rural Mail route for 3 or 4 hours. In the summer I have to raise the hood and let air in so it will start.

              A:

              Hi Jim, happy to help you! Ignition coils are very rugged and reliable, but can fail for a variety of reasons. Heat and vibration can damage the coil's windings and insulation causing shorts or opens in the primary or secondary windings. However, the number one killer of ignition coils is voltage overload caused by bad spark plugs or plug wires. If a spark plug or plug wire is open or has excessive resistance, the ignition coil's output voltage can rise to the point where it burns through the coil's internal insulation causing a short. The insulation in many coils can be damaged if output exceeds 35,000 volts. Once this happens, the coil's output voltage may drop causing ignition misfire when the engine is under load, or the coil may cease to put out any voltage preventing the engine from starting or running. If a coil has battery voltage at its positive terminal and is being grounded on and off by the ignition module or circuit, but is not producing a spark, the coil is defective and needs to be replaced. However, I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

              Hi Ed, I'm glad to be of assistance! Our website shows this part as an exact fit for your 1997 Ford Thunderbird V6. I researched more in the Accel website and they list this part as an exact fit too. Apart from the 140012 they also list 140035 and 140036 too for your Thunderbird. I do not see these parts available with us. You may check with the nearest Advance store for an alternate availability.

            Does the coil come with a new mounting bracket? One that will match up to the vacuum solenoids.

              It is on top of the engine, on the driver side just behind the throttle linkage. If you have the factory one on it, is gray in color.
