Try swapping the defective coil and see if the fault moves with the coil, if not you have defective circuits to the coil....When the scanner tells you a story, its only half the story....It reads faults in an entire circuit and it will identify that circuit, but maybe not the exact problem....Regards Johngee10

2010 Ford F150 5.4 engine miss

Any applicable trouble codes? Maybe a misfire code will point at a specific cylinder, then you check that cylinder for fuel--spark--compression. If p0300 that is a problem that effects all cylinders.
Did you visually check for spark at the plugs, even if ,coil on plug, you should be able to check. Did you use a gage and check proper fuel pressure? Is there fuel injector pulse? Some fords have the ability to kill fuel injector if no spark on a particular cylinder.
Any electrical components, I try to check voltage and ground before replacing.

03 Zo6 p0300 Miss on cyl 7 & 8 replaced coils plugs still have misfire on 7 & 8

Code 300 is a random miss rather than a specific cylinder.
If you have a loss of power on one or more cylinders, it could be a fuel injector or mechanical problem in addition to spark.

misfires are from coils , plugs , HT leads , and injectors and fuel pressure . If the head got that hot then it is possible that the injectors have an internal problem that shows when they get hot and the electronics breaks down.

Power loss and slight juking

Figure if you are running with 7 cylinders firing instead of all 8 you will have a power loss and jerking from the dead cylinder.

You could have a bad injector which a Noide tester will show or a Voltmeter will show on the power wire to #7 injector. For testing the injector, check if it has continuity so if it does get power, it will work.

Usually the Code will show from the Spark circuit failing. Either the plug, coil on plug or wiring can cause the misfire. On some engines access to the plugs is easier. You could change plug 7 to another cylinder or change coil on top to different cylinder without removing the plug. Clear the computer and see if defect moves from one cylinder to another.

If cylinder 7 is still bad with a different coil, you have eliminated the coil as a problem. Then its either the plug or the wire to it.

Car has bad miss and no power the check engine light is not on so i replaced plugs, wires and coil pack still has slight miss. what do i look for next.

You could have a dirty fuel injector.Just add some fuel injector cleaner into the fuel tank.Try not to get some cheap stuff.You can have the code checked to see what code is making the light come on.It could be a certain cylinder that is causing the problem and the code could help in finding what cylinder it is.Let me know if you need more help.Good luck.

I have a 96 suburban 5.7 throwing a po305 code,ive replaced the distributor,map sensor,plugs, wires,and coverted from scfi to mfi,the code went away for two days and now has returned. ihave replaced...

The 305 code means a cylinder misfire. You could have a bad valve or a cracked cylinder head (worst case). Rent a compression tester from any auto parts store that does the tool loan program and test your compression. If ALL your cylinders are within 20% of each other, then I would check your injector pressure. I hope its something simple and cheap to repair.

What the miss there before you started replacing parts or did you replace some of them as maintenance items. Like the plugs. Possible that the parts store gave you one with a crack in it??? Also how about a vacuum leak at the intake gasket. You said you have compression. Have you tried checking running compression. A broken valve spring can cause good cranking compression, but cause no compression when it's running.
