are you getting spark ? juss cuz you threw new parts at it doesnt mean you found the problem. Check for spark, if so, check to make sure the injector is working.

if you have been using e-85 and gasoline,try reading ozzwoman9s post from earlier this year.she had similar issues,and it may help you on what not to buy.fwiw.

compression test, plug wire inspection/resistance check, coil resistance check...

Hope your not going through what I did. My #5 cyl. was misfiring too. First, changed plugs wires...that wasn't it. Second, changed the injecter...that wasn't it. Finially I took it in the the factory shop and they said it was the head, so they replaced both heads saying the other was going out too (it's only got 77,000 miles)....well that was it (costing me $1950:pissedoff:) Just got it out of the shop yesterday...I'm just glad it's fixed though.

have the heads magnifluxed to check for leaks...3.0's have been known to crack heads from time to time.
