2004 Ford Thunderbird Owner Comments

problem #2

Jun 092018

Thunderbird Pacific Coast Roadster 3.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 29,195 miles


I purchased the 2004 FORD Thunderbird Jan 2016 with 28895 miles, there is now 29195 on the odometer. The misfiring started a couple weeks ago. I am learning that this 3.9 eng. that FORD put in this vehicle has a lot of problems with coil on plug failure. I would like FORD to extend me the courtesy to extend the warranty to have this problem repaired at my FORD dealer. The cost can be as much as $1000 to $1500 dollars.

PLEASE HELP!!!! the only thing left is a class action it is so wide spread. Thank you for your consideration

Thunderbird 3.9L, V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 43,104 miles

This is the fifth time this 2004 Thunderbird has had to be returned to the dealer for the failure of one or more coil-on-plug ignition module. These are a known problem by Ford, but they refuse to do a simple recall. They claim the defect is not 'life threatening'. Ford has extended the warranty on these modules to 100,000 miles,----- or, 10 years from the car's in-service date. If the car's warranty on this is not over the mileage barrier, it will soon be out by the time restriction for most TB owners.

This is a warranty job, but I still loose a full day of the car and the expense of taking and retrieving it. I have now had six of the coil modules replaced. Hopefully the other two will go before my 10 years is up this fall.
