Hello and thank you for your question,

Are you able to do some testing If I send you the steps?

One other common cause for the lack of spark on your 3.8 can be caused by a failed distributor pick up coil. In order to determine if that is the case you are going to need to do some testing, I have enclosed the steps in the link below, copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view them.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
