Where is and what firing order of spark plugs for 2008 ford f150 4.0l v6

Firing order can be obtained at any parts store, online or at a dealer. Misfiring can be a bad spark plug, a bad spark plug wire. Bad news is a bad value seat (most likely intake) or the fuel injector may be the issue.

I have a390 ford engine that back fires while idling it has a breaker point ignition what could be wrong

Check this video for idle speed adjustment. Backfiring can be caused by incorrect mixing in the carburettor or bad timing settings.

How do I go about replacing the timing chain on a 2000 ford Taurus with a 3.0 engine

The power steering fluid has nothing to do with the backfiring. Need to know why you think the timing is off. is there something else? If you have not played with the timing, backfire could also be an electrical cross fire issue. Have the compression tested to make sure the timing chain is not the issue. If the compression tests good, all the valves and the timing is working. Recommend you look at the spark plug wiring and replace if wet or damaged.

I have an 85 and its backfiring out of the carburetor,i just re did the carb,and all top gaskets-intake manifold and valve cover,also put in new water pump and thermostat

Double check you spark plug wires to make sure you have the firing order right and aren't off time on the distributor. You should also re-check you timing.
