A 4.6-liter Ford V-8 has the following firing order: 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8. On Ford V-8 engines, the front of the engine is located on the passenger side of the car. From front to back of the engine, Ford sequentially numbers the cylinders, placing numbers 1 through 4 on the passenger’s side and 5 through 8 on the driver’s side.
Ford stopped producing its well-liked Windsor engines when they introduced the modular series of engines. These engines, which have a lower displacement, provide more power and the smoothness required by the company’s top-of-the-line Lincoln Town Car. According to Wikipedia, the 4.6 engine is used in a variety of vehicles, trucks, and vans.
Ford markets the Triton modular engine for trucks. The business sells a DOHC variant called the InTech for Lincolns. This engine is available in two-, three-, and four-valve configurations on production lines. Ford’s 4.6 L is no longer being manufactured.
The modular Ford engines have two significant known problems. Intake manifolds made of DuPont nylon, which are notorious for cracking and leaking coolant, are the subject of the first.
Due to a 2005 lawsuit, the replacement warranty for these manifolds was ended as of 2014. Ford also extends the warranty for the second problem, which consists of difficult-to-remove plugs and missing spark plug threads.
