My 4.7L dakota has a cylinder not firing. Compression checked out ok. Can you suggest a possible cause?

This can only be a bad spark plug wire, a bad spark plug or a bad distributor....start with the wire....switch one of the wires out and see if the problem moves with the wire. do the same with the spark plug and if this does not solve the problem, you issue is with the distributor. Good luck

02 Dakota sometimes missfires, most times runs great. Code reader shows "random missfires" Vehicle sits a lot; 21K miles on an 02. Changed idel air control sensor, throttle sensor and absolute pressure...

I would replace the spark plugs and more importantly the spark plug wires. It may be a bad plug wire with a break in it somewhere. It be so small that it only grounds the wire out when it gets warm due to expansion of the insulation around the wire.

Did you properly gap the plugs when you changed them? Improper spark will cause really rough idling at low RPM like that.
