2001 f150

I have a 2001 f150 that misfires only during acceleration, and the code that I recieved says misfire plug #3 From the front of the vehicle which cylinder is #3 it must be either the 2nd one on either the left or the right, from what I can tell. The auto parts guy told me that it is either a plug wire or a sparkplugand coil combination, that they ate made together. I looked at it and cannot make heads or tails of it a newer V8 sure doesn't look like what I remember.. Does that sound right a spark plug and coil??
Any help appreciated.

Actually I just found out that it is a 2000. Thanks bejay I need ed the firing order, as the computer is telling me #3 cyclinder, I did not know physically which one that was, now I do. It is actually a coil that slips over the plug with a rubber boot there is no sparkplug wire. I bought both the puug 4.99 and the coilpac 55.00, and am going to change them out here in the next hour or so. I'll post back the results, maybe it will help some one else.

It's exactly as you described,a coil over plug.The rubber boot will crack at times just like a regular plug wire does.Usually you only have to remove a small retaining bolt and pull straight up,nothing to it.The plug though sits down in the intake a ways so you'll need a fairly long extension.

That was the problem. The #3 cylinder was not firing due to the coil pack. I replaced it in about 10 minutes and all is fine thanks fellows.
