can anyone help??? cylinders 2 and 3 not firing

got a CEL P0352 says ingnition coil defective.

i unpluged bat, removed coil and went to autozone bought a new one. installed it hooked bat back up, turned on car fine till i tried to drive it then same shit!! 2&3 stopped working. went back got new spark plugs and wires, again ran fine till i tried to drive it down the road.

i had to drive it 300+ miles only using cylinders 1 and 4 to get home from delaware to New York. (semis and busses were pullin up the hills faster than me!!! hahaha)

anyone have any idea what i should check next??? would take it to ford but they charge 100 just to look at it and im havin a baby next month and i dont have any money to pay for all that.

thanks Shawn

Stealership got $36+ of my hard earned cash... quite a bit for what it is, as there's at least $1.50 of material there...

Here's the data off of the bag:

WPT-517
3U2Z-14S411-TNA

WIRING PIGTAIL KIT
-HECHO EN MEXICO
-Printed in U.S.A.

The wires are all black (no colored wires like the loom) and is REALLY long; soldier one wire at a time.
Oh, another tip: There is a wire C clip that holds the connector on to the coil, and it's wrapped UNDER the connector.
I used a tiny screwdriver tip and a needle nose to pull one side away, then slid it out from under the connector.

-TooHi
