I own an 99 explorer with a 4.0l v6. It was chugging for a while so I took it to a mechanic and they told me my #3 cylinder was misfiring. So I changed the spark plugs and every thing was fine for about four months now it is doing it again. Could it be my distributor? My second question is I have a howling sound that comes from my transmition/drive shaft area. It is not constant but it happens when I apply stress to the engine like going up hill or speeding up to quickly. What is this sound?

CHECK YOUR PLUG WIRES FOR RUBBING ON SOMETHING AND ARCING. DARKNESS MAY HELP

I FOUND THAT WHEN YOU REPLACE 'EM, ANYTHING THEY DO RUB ON OR COULD, SHORT 4" PIECES OF 3/8 FUEL LINE CAN BE SPLIT AND INSTALLED ON THE PLUG WIRES WILL PREVENT FUTURE RUB THRUs

AS FOR THE NOISE---CHECK YOUR U-JOINT---SEE PICS
