I have been driving my Mother-in-law's Windstar lately because it has developed a skip. The coil pack was replaced a couple of years ago. Recently we found a plug wire from the front of the engine had fallen against the engine and had a slight melted spot in it, so that was replaced.

I took the van to AZ and had it scanned, (Check Engine Light was on), and one code was found, P0401. Would this cause the engine to skip? I have found that it will skip when under a load such as leaving from a dead stop, and it will also skip when cruising at highway speeds too. I also wonder if, when that plug wire melted, it could have shorted out the coil?

Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
