Question about 1999 Dodge Ram
First off, 4.7L, there is no plug wires on this engine, coil on plug, I suggest you do a compression test on this engine, if no compression on that cyl, pull the valve cover on that side and check to see if the rockers got out of place, this engine is famous for dislodge rockers in high mileage and low maintanece. if it 's popping through the throtlle body or tailpipe or clatter on first start of the day, thats your clue, I suggest you change the lash adjusters on that side, inspect the rockers for damage, replace if needed, with a screwdriver you can pop them in and out with no problems, make sure the cam lobes are up for each cyl, when you hear the snap sound, they are in place, not cheap, if no rockers out of place, burnt valve. Also make sure the injector and coil circuit are ok , you can swap injector to next door cyl and see if miss fire followed. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP

Change your spark plug wires, I would have started with that first.
