Question Any Ford Mechanics out there to help me out? Please?

I have a 1994 Ford Ranger 2.3L I4 splash manual transmission. It has a random misfire, i have tried to fix it but have failed. It is completely random it could be idling and start to misfire or it could be accelerating and or i could be going a steady speed and it starts to misfire or it won't misfire all day and run great its completely random. I have replaced spark pugs, spark plug wires, both coil packs, ICM twice with a BWD ICM, ignition switch, fuel injectors and it still happens. I can turn my truck off while its misfiring and start it again and it will run fine, but it could misfire again or it could run fine the rest of the time. I had the check engine light code once but i forgot it i just remember it said something about a spout connector in my Haynes manual but my Dad said that the ALLDATA program on his computer said that the Haynes manual i have is wrong but anyways i have not been able to fix this problem. Any help please?

It sounds like you have a loose connection someplace. Check your terminals to the coils, might also want to take resistance from terminal to terminal.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

See if this helps. Make sure that the connections are clean and dry, pins aren't discolored, than apply a thin coat of dielectric grease to it all to make sure that you keep the moisture out.
