Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
Check the wire pigtail that plugs into the coil pack. The plastic insulation around the four wires become hard and brittle, this can cause shorting and cross fires. Carefully pull the protective cover back to expose the four wires that go into the plug, check visually then bent the wires to see if they are flexible. If they are flexible and not brittle it is something else. Check out this link for detailed information and tests.
