I am thinking on the answer as fairlady,did you check the plugs to see if they are fouling out by oil, the valev seals cud be worn and oil is wetting the plug, when you crank the engine or there is no compression, the piston rings can be worn, okay.

Things that can cause it to miss.
fouled plug (checked)
bad wires(checked)
coil pack(checked)
ignition signal to coil pack( switch old coil pack to a working cylinder to make sure its good and you may find a possible short in the wiring to the coil pack) alternately check the voltage to the wires going to the coils make sure like colors have like voltages. im not too big into ford trucks but thats a good start for most vehicles
possibly injector stuck open and flooding cylinders
timing could be off

Have a compression test done ,and look for a vacuum leak near the cylinder,like a vacuum hose or intake gasket.If the compression test shows a fluctuation between the 3 and 4 cylinder,then the head gasket would need to be replaced.

Check engine light is on, engine weak and missing


put a screw driver into the plug that you think is missing get it one forth of an inch away from a good ground and crank the engine over if there is spark try replaceing the plug or plug wire or both, and if there is no spark if that model has a distributor replace the cap and rotor and wires otherwise if it has the coil pack you will have to change the coil pack.
