    Hello, I’m brand new to the forum and was looking for some advise with my 01 LS V8. So when I take off from a stop and give a some more throttle than normal the car falls on it’s face. Cuts out and sounds terrible. I’m don’t know these cars that well. So any help would be greatly appreciated

    Well, the first thought is always marginal COPs. However, it could be something else. Is your check engine light on? The first step is to pull any and all DTCs (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) from the car using a Ford specific scan tool. The lowest cost one that I know of is Forscan, but there are several others too.

    Yes, new COPS and plugs. On an LS they must be pristine.

    The coils are somewhere around $350-$400 aren’t they?
