Double check your wires firing order. Did you change the distributor cap and coil wire? Check your oil level.

    if you are referring to the firing order is missing then you need to understand the firing order in which makes it run properly 1st understand the firing order you most definitely have a wire in the wrong order find in the block itself it should be raised or just stamped on the intake manifold or the block itself example 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2 or like that ...locate the #1 piston usually the right front or left front cylinder then understand the distributor cap order of rotation and the #1 terminal on it turn either clockwise or counterclockwise then follow and connect #1 with #1on the distributor and follow the order to that extent of firing order to that of the rotation of the rotor making sure to follow every one of them to its proper location from point a being the plug wire to point b being on the distributor cap this will remedy you issue well make sure all the plug wires are fully onto the plug itself and they are not laying against the manifold someplace causing them to burn through or arch !

SOURCE: location of spark plugs for a 03 explorer ( v8 4.6l )

Most likely does not have wires. It should have coil packs on the plugs. If it does have wires, should be the 1st cylinder on the drivers side of the engine in a V6, rear cylinder on passenger side of the V8.

SOURCE: I replaced my spark plug wires on my 1996 chevy

Since you didn't state whether it is a V6 or V8, I'll give you both.

V6 -4.3Liter
Firing Order is 1-6-5-4-3-2
Distributor rotor turns Clockwise
Number 1 spark plug tower on distributor cap, faces the front of the engine.

->Drivers side, spark plug order in engine, starting from the Front going back:
->Passenger side, spark plug order in engine,
starting from the Front going back:

If it's Electronic, the distributor cap has a Left side, (Drivers side), and a Right side, (Passenger side)
Starting from the Front, going back on the Left side,
Starting from the Front going back on the Right side,

V8-5.0, 5.7, and 7.4Liter
Firing Order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2
Distributor rotor turns Clockwise
Number 1 spark plug tower on distributor cap,
faces Front, towards the Drivers side.

Electronic distributor cap has two sides. Drivers, (Left), side and Passenger, (Right), side.
Starting from Front going back on Drivers side,
Starting from Front going back on Passenger side,

Spark plug order in engine, starting from Front going back, Drivers side:
Spark plug order in engine, starting from Front going back, Passenger side:

Tune up / does my car have wires or just spark plugs?

No it does not have spark plug wire's, it only has ignition coil boots. Just replace spark plugs, if engine not running with a cylinder miss you'll be ok, if it is running with a cylinder miss you might want to check your ignition coil pack for spark.

My hyundai accent has a bad engine miss,i can see fire jumping around the spark plugs at night. i changed plug wires, does'nt seem to help. ive pulled the boots on the wires down a bit but that does'nt...

What do you mean it didnt help? the sparks are still a flyin? Did you replace the spark plugs too? if not, replace the spark plugs. Buy the correct NGK spark plugs. Was the miss a all of a sudden thing, or gradual. If it has adjustable valves, have they been checked? You need to narrow down which cylinder has the miss and look from there.

Missing #3cyl when at idle

Swap spark plug and spark plug wire with those from another convenient cylinder (#2?).
Does the #3 still miss?
If so, it could be the ignition coil.

Does #2 (the swapped one) miss?
If so, gap the plug or replace and /or replace wires.

'83 Monte Carlo - Miss fire at idle/accel./driving

You can have car put on scope and it wll show any irregularities in the ignition system. It can also be dowithout any equipment. First, loosing ALL 8 spark plug wires, Now place the spark plug wires loosly back on, just secure enough to secure. You might need 2 people. Being the miss is more consistant in gear, APPLY THE EMERGENCY BRAKE , put trans into drive and raise rpm's till miss is obvious. Remove ONE plug wire at a time, TILL THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE IN MISS. Thats the cylinder missing. Start with the spark plug, inspect, work back to wires and cap. An EXTREME result will be NO COMPRESSION.
