If your car is Missing while Driving and or Idling. First have the Spark Plugs changed if this does not work also change the Rubber Wires over the Spark Plugs. The car would misses worse when the AC was on and the engine power was drastically reduced.
Every car need a Tune Up every once in a while check your users manual.

You did everything I will suggest in normal case.only one step you miss!
Remove the crank sensor and stick 4 layer of masking tape,turn the engine to point were the ring is full(no hole)and install the sensor again.Use scan tool and learn the new position of the sensor.when the sensor move the timing move to ,if your flex plate is lose or damage will give the wrong angle for cyl.#1 After computer register misfire wil go to fail safe mode and set the timing to 10 degree
good luck

You either have a bad ignition module or a
vacuum leak,intake manifold,PCV Hose,etc
that effects cyl #3

Ohm Checking is for the 1980's

Todays tool is an oscilloscope, you won't
have at home.

Also Smoke the intake and EVAP System
for leaks (EVAP Smoke Machine)

92 Ford F150 4.9L. starts good, idles rough, dies at slow speeds

4.9 litre ?? you having a laugh its a 10ton truck engine not a pick up -global warming machine,remove the pump/sender unit and check the gauze filter also look inside tank for a something floating around ,i think the idles is not a related problem to the vehicle losing power but their is a possibility you could have a problem with the little vac operated thing on the fuel injector line that allows the fuel through only when the engine is running

Truck has a miss at idle and all rpms

I believe you have two separate codes; 24 and 31. 24 is "open or short in intake air temp sensor circuit" and 31 is "open or short in airflow sensor circuit at idle". These sensors may share a common ground so I would check that as well. You could also try putting a stethascope or (long screwdriver with your ear at the other end) to each injector and see if all are clicking like they should.

Car reving up and down on its own 3 to 4 times, then sputtering and dying?

The previous solution to check the idle air contol is in the correct area but needs some clarification.
The idle control is accomplished by two parts: Throttle position sensor ( $35 at Autozone) and idle contol valve approx $190. I replaced the throttle position sensor about a week ago and it runs perfect
to date but am a skeptic after almost two years of dealer incompetance. I researched all the sensors and failure symptoms on the internet and the throttle position sensor failure symptoms matched mine
exactly. See _Position_Sensor

Do a balance test on the injectors. Remove one injector plug one at a time. Each time you remove one you should have a miss. All 6 should have the same miss. You could have an injector going bad.
