Ok here's where I'm at with this. Brand new plugs, wires, coil pack. #6 looked just like the other plugs, no big difference. Also did silencer delete, k+n box filter, cleaned the maf and the throttle body. CEL still came back on for #6. Car still feels sluggish, especially when I start it up. Anything else I should look into before I hand it over to the shop?
Possibly related to this, possible not. Car has no heat and does not hit operating temp. It gets just below the N on the gauge, and fluctuated there and lower, especially at highway speeds. I noticed that it drops very fast when I turn the heat on. I flushed the coolant, new thermostat from the Ford dealer here in Rockland county, flushed heater core (was very clean) and purged the system with a funnel. I cant tell when the fan comes on when Im driving, so would a bad temp sensor do all that? Sorry for the lengthy post but this one's driving me up the wall.
