Try swopping an injector from another cylinder ,if its still the same then coil ,but it could also be the valves burnt out or a chip out of the stellite coating on the valve seat

Dead miss in cylinder 2

I would want to know if you have normal compression on all 6 cylinders, and if the other 5 are firing correctly.
Usually when you pull a wire and the engine smooths out, you have another cylinder miss going on at the same time.
How many trouble codes do you have in the computer ?

Cylinder 5 is showing a fault ,have changed the coil pack and spark plugs and wires and it is still showing,,,any ideals

verify pulse from computer is telling the fuel injector to fire.
it completes the negative side, so there should be 12 volts on one of the two wires when the ignition is on.

Mifire on 1 and number 2 cylinder on my dakota 4.7 litre

When this happens you have a bad coil pack on the impacted cylinder. This is a fairly common occurrence on the Chrysler 4.7, and the fix is simple. Replace the coil packs for the impacted cylinders. Most will replace all 8 of the coil packs to avoid having to do this again, but you will be fine replacing only the ones that are implacted. You can save a few dollars and get some from an auto salvage yard, the chances of you getting a bad one are slim-to-none.

99 ford windstar (3.8)seems to misfire randomly when idling and can feel pulsations while driving

clean the MAF sensor first and also add some Chevron Techron fuel injector cleaner to 1/4 tank of gas. You may have a dirty MAF or a partially plugged injector.

Codes anyone help me???

You must first rule out a couple of things. First make sure there is spark going to the cylinder that is misfiring. If not you might have to replace the coil pack located at the back of the engine. Next you must rule out a bad fuel injector to that cylinder. Make sure you are getting spark to the fule injector. Next there could be a bad wire or bad plug. I know because I replaced all three till I got to the coil pack.
