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.

Have miss at idle and when the trans need to down shift


You.ve got me confused!!! You have a miss at idle, but at idle the miss stops, and when you step on the gas the miss stops. It sounds to me that the miss is stopping under all conditions - so what is the problem?

Miss fire on #3cyl. where is #3 located


Number 3 is the 3rd plug back on the passenger side. Coils are notorious for going bad, I would recommend replacing the spark plugs, while you are there. Use Auto Lite, or Motorcraft Platinum Spark plugs only.
