Well for starters change your fuel filter. check your air filter. post back, i bet the fuel filter will do the trick.

Is your truck stock, or does it have any mods? Does it lightly miss or fall on its face. Is the miss at all speeds or just under load? Is it an automatic or standard transmission?

hey gbear, the truck is stock as far as i know ,other than exhaust. i put a 3in. dp into a 4in. straight pipe, muff and cat delete , no chip or anything. also know engine has been replaced, and there is a ford sticker on radiator core that shows something it looks like pcm reprogrammed in 98? but cant make anything else out on sticker. have been trying to locate mechanic/shop that did the work but no luck so far. it misses at a constant from idle up to highway speed, it is an automatic. thanks

If it a constant miss I would check the wiring to the injectors. make sure the plugs are all made and take an ohm meter to the connectors to see if any are open or shorted. You may have a bad connection under the valve cover. You can use an infarade thermometer to see which cyclinder is dead (it will be cooler than the rest). I hope this is of some help.

That under valve cover harness is a good thing to check for sure.
