I have a 1996 Explorer Sport with the 4.0, and it keeps giving me an error code about a misfire in cylinder3. I pulled off the wire from that plug and inserted a new plug in the wife holding it to metal to see how strong the spark was...weak. I tried the same thing to cylinder 1 and it seemed a lot stronger. Has anyone else had this issue? Are these coil packs prone to do this? I'm hoping its just as easy as replacing the coil pack and not anything more. All input is appreciated!!

After reading some of the posts from other people, could this also be an intake plenum gasket issue?
