Ford 4.6 Cylinder Numbers

I just bought a 99' Crown Vic. Turns out the engine is just fine. Since its been sitting for a few months, I changed the plugs, fuel filter and oil/filter.

But then the check engine light came on. I read a code P303 (#3 cylinder misfire). This engine has an individual coil per spark plug, and apparently I did not get one seated properly.

Question: Where is the number 3 cylinder on a Ford 4.6?

I can't seem to find a layout for cylinder identification for this engine anywhere. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Ed.

Believe it or not, searching on Google I could not find the answer to this question; no matter how I listed the key words. Firing order, no problem, but cylinder layout - nowhere to be found. And with individual coils, firing order is irrelevant since I do not have plug wires to route from cap to plugs. I only found one meaningful hit regarding the P303 (#3 cylinder misfire) code. It was another message board and someone said that the #3 cylinder is on the passenger side, third one back closet to the firewall.

Now it is confirmed, and readily available for the next Chevy guy who decides to get a Ford and doesn't know the cylinder identification.

Again, thanks for the help, Ed www.edgesz28.com
