Ignition Coil Connector

Asked by Feb 25, 2017 at 11:22 AM about the 2005 Ford Escape XLT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had squarrels eat wires to the front 3 Ignition coil connetcors on my  a
2005 ford escape XLT,my question is the new connectors have a white and
black wire and ther old ones had a red and a colored wire, but comparing
both old and new connectors I notice the new connector has the black wire
where the old connector has a red, so do I use the black wire to replace the
old Red? , it's rather confusing to me when you plug in the new connector
you can see the black wire is where the red wire was on the old one, or
does it matter which wire goes where?

So if you have the black wire connected to the red and white to the other colored wire, green is it, thats the way it would go. It is as long as the original wires are connected to the same side as they were to the coils.
