Question about 2000 Ford Explorer
It's m Uncle's car, and I am trying to help him out. It is mis-firing.
Drive it to Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys and ask them to put the truck on a scanner. It will help identify the problem. You have it listed as an Explorer. It may be an Expedition, but usually the v10 is a truck engine and the largest Explorer had a 4.6L v-8.
Many of these v-10 engines lack disributors and have crankshaft sensors instead.

SOURCE: keeps mis-firing on cylinder #3
first, check the spark plug and wire going to the number 3 cylinder on the engine( # 3 cyl. is the one by the firewall, on the driver side of vehicle).If plug looks ok, make sure you get good spark at the end of the wire where it hooks up to the spark plug. If no spark, check the wire for cracks, breakache , etc. Make sure wire is in good conditions. If still no spark at the # 3 cylinder wire, check the ignition coil. Do, by disconnecting wire at ignition coil and with car running place a screwdriver at ignition coil and make sure there is good spark. If no spark comes out, replace ignition coil. If problem still continiues after making sure plug, wire and ignition coil are ok, check cyl. compression and fuel injector for proper fuel delivery. Simply, by replacing the plugs and wires may solve your complaint but you still need to check the car to be certain you don't waste your money by guessing and replacing unneeded parts.

SOURCE: Spark Plug Wire Sequence
Your firing order is 1-5-3-6-2-4 and your #1 is the cap terminal the 3 O'clock from the front so that would be the one towards the driver's fender and the rotor rotates clock wise. So the next post would go to the #5 cylinder. Hope this helps friend. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your truck running 100%.

When you change the plug what color is the tip of the old one? This could be the answer to your problems. It should be a light beige or tan if everything is working properly.Just take one of the old plugs down to your local garage and get the mechanic to have a look at it. He'll be able to tell you why it keeps misfiring. Hope this helps.
