Please help

OK, so I am to the point where I can no longer afford to keep throwing parts at my truck in hopes of them fixing the problem. My truck has refused to start for the last 4 mornings and its beginning to to annoy me so I need you guys to tell me who in the OKC area is best at working on 7.3s so I can set up a DR appointment for my sick girl and get her fixed by the guys that know what they are doing.

Don't know on codes, check engine light comes and goes while driving, no notice in how it runs. Plugged in my little code scanner (actron cheese ball special) and all it says is misfire.

Changed, Both UVC's (Dorman Part# 615-201 from Oreilly's),all 8 GP's (HC Cargo brand pt# 100616 don't remember where I got them) and Stancore 586-902 relay

It was hard to start when cold but usually started right up if plugged in, now it wont start at all if its under 50 deg outside even if its plugged in.

well she started right up this morning and is quieter than she usually is so im crossing my fingers and hoping she does the same this evening when I get off work. I still would like to know of the good Powerstroke mechanic's in the area.
