When I had a misfire and could not find the problem, I would drive my car at night to an area where there were no lights near by. I would leave the engine on and open the hood. You can see if there is any arcing from from your spark plug wires or any electrical wiring to the engine block. Also, you may want to consider this: How long has it been since the spark plug wires were changed?
Throw a set of spark plugs in it. Unless you perform the basic needs for an engine, it will always let you know one way or another. before you know it, after neglecting the engines needs, your going to have a driveabilty problem that is going to be impossible to diagnose on this site.
Locate the distributor. The wires coming from the distributor, with the exception of the coil wire, all go to a spark plug. Simply follow the wires to the plugs. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!
You dont have too, but its always a good idea so you dont accidently touch the alternator or something similar. Its pretty straight forward, I like to put antiseize on the threads of the spark plugs when they are going in aluminum heads.
