What are the torque specs for the intake manifold?

misfire on cylinder 4 probably the coil change plugs and move coil to another cylinder if the misfire changes to that cylinder change coil as well.

I recommend changing all the coils at once though if over 60000 miles as the have a tendency to follow each other out.

#3 cylinder is misfiring ?

check ignition coils. you can swap with another cylinder coils and see if misfire changes to other cylinder. If it jumps to other cylinder where there you atached the coil from cylinder #3, change the coil.
You can also check Coil On Plug Boot for damage and simple change the part. very easy and cheap.

Cyl one and four misfire. Just changed wires. Coil runs both

OK, if changing the wires doesn't help, and cylinders 1 and 4 are both controlled by the same coil, change the coil, in order to solve the problem. If that doesn't work, it could be the coil pack module it sits on.

Have 2000 limited 4.7. Has engine light on and checked codes,says #3 & 6 misfire. changed coils. but still have light and runs rough at 65-69 mph. A little rough at stop.

why would someone even start with changing the coils...usually a misfire is due to bad spark plugs..replace spark plugs, then go from there...just for a personal reference, the next time you want to see if your coils are bad, simply change out your bad two coils with two coils on the other side of the engine that are good...if they misfire code changes, then you know its a coil...if not, plugs...
