Angry 2002 4.2L misfire

I have a 2002 F150 with the 4.2L 6 cylinder. I have replaced the coil, plugs, plug wires, fuel filter, air fliter and, crank position sensor but I am still getting a missfire on cylinders 3&4. Any suggestions on what to do next??

By the way the truck only has 72,xxx miles on it

wow, back from the dead.

But that's good, thread necromancy is encouraged here. It means you are properly utilizing the search function.

Plug in a OBD II code reader and document the codes, then navigate the reader offerings and document the different pages. You can find out a wealth of information in 1/2 hour that will take you hours to try to find anyother way and save yourself a ton of $$$

I'm having the same problem with my 2005 4.2L.
Ive replaced coil pack, wires, plugs and still no luck. Anyone find a answer to the problem yet?

try a smoke test, the 4.2 intake has a problem with the seals going out on the lower intake. it will cause it to run lean and bank and in some cases if its bad it will act like a miss mire. my 2001 4.2 did the same thing. a smoke test will show if there is any leaks in the intake.
