Install a fuel pressure gauge. Key on engine off it should build close to 60psi and back off a few lbs. It should hold steady and not drop off. If it does drop off, replace the pump. Engine running at idle, it should be reading right around 52-54 psi. The engine will barely start/run at 50 psi.

    If it isn\'t the fuel pump, I had to shim the crankshaft sensor on my 2002 to stop a misfire p0300 code. I also have read that a leaky spider can cause that also. Go this helps

Truck is not firing on 3 cylinders yet it runs.. Runs really rough, back fires, under powered.. Plugs are Wet, Firing order is correct. New Spark plug cables. Don't know that is wrong! Please Help

Check for spark at the plug ( may have coil problem).
If spark is good then do a compression check. Pressure shouldn't be less than 75% of known good cylinders.

My truck didnt pass smog they said it was a firing issue and some gas isnt getting it the spark plugs? are they out of order?

If your plugs weren't wired right you would have trouble with missing, rough idle if it would start and run. Some gas not getting burnt suggests that a tune up may be in order. New plugs, wires, cap and rotor. It would be a good idea to have the throttle body checked out, 16 years of gas flow will wear it and maybe its putting out a little too much gas. Going one hotter on your plugs could also help get rid of that unburnt gas. Make sure there are no codes that would affect gas consumption, if there is fix them first. Hope this helps.

Miss firing

could be a wire crossed, or it's out of time. since you used motorcraft plugs, did you set them properly to the correct gap? replacing plugs without gapping them can cause the sluggishness, out of time can cause the mis-fires and rough running.
