You are mis fireing on cyl 1 and 3 if you replaced plugs and wires and coil this is going to be a fuel injector issue or valve issue. See if you can swap the injectors with known good cyl. and see if it changes. Or have a shop do a fuel injector service on it to see if it helps. It may be to late for the fuel injector service.

2000 nissan frontier, started missing engine light came on so we replaced plugs and wires and reset light runs better but still has a little miss... any other suggestions


misfire, has many cause, i have 50 reason list. for get that.
1: bad engine compression, or other major engine issues. mech.
2:bad spark
3: bad fueling. (too much or too little)

it only takes a few tests to find which it is, and in that order.
above assumes, 13.3 to 14.7v at the EFI system at all times running.
and EGR is not leaking.
what does engine light mean.
are you saying the CEL , check (service) engine light glows running? if yes ? why not scan it and report all DTC codes present. P0300 is random misfire. and P0301 is #1 cyl misfire.
as 2 examples.

DTC P0300, P0301,P0303


The codes are for a random miss, and a miss on cylinders 1 and 3.
It could be ignition or the fuel injectors, or a vac leak or mechanical problem such as a cam.
The computer sees a drop in RPM on those cylinders noting a drop in horsepower.
A mechanic would verify those two cylinders are firing and getting fuel then check for mechanical problems.

is the car missing when driving? 2000 and on has coil over plug's there are no wires. Is the check engine light on? if so go to an Auto Zone parts store or one that will scan the car computer for free and get the codes out to pin point the problem. Sounds like the cars miss firing. it could be more than one coil and or plug going bad. Did you replace any coil packs? Bad coil packs are 90% of all miss fires on todays cars and trucks.

Engine misfires on #1 cyl. Code P0301. plug, fuel


Then the coil is bad. Even if the specs were ok, which they r not, the cracked case means its junk.

P0301


Check obvious first, starting at plug wire, to make sure it's getting spark to plug, then pull plug to see how/if, it appears to be firing. No spark to wire, check coil. If spark is good to plug, and plug firing, time to check if fuel getting there,and if no, could be caused by faulty oxygen sensor, bad injector, just as starters.
