RE: 2002 Taurus SES miss at idle in drive
Please clarify which engine you have...
You reference that you have the DOHC engine, but state that you checked the PLUG WIRES and you reference a coil. The 3.0 Duratec DOHC engine doesn't have plug wires. It has COPs (Coil On Plugs) and the plugs go down into the cylinder heads thru the valve covers. The 3.0 Vulcan OHV has a coil pack with plug wires and the plugs go into the side of the heads by the exhaust manifolds. This will help as these are different animals in regards to trouble-shooting.
2016 Ford Fusion SE (1.5L Ecoboost)
2015 Ford F-150 Lariat Supercrew (3.5L Ecoboost)
2010 Lincoln MKZ (3.5L DOHC)
2007 Ford Focus SE (2.0L DOHC) A.K.A. "Zippy"
2004 Ford Freestar Limited (4.2L OHV)
