I have a Ford f150 5.4 liter and the check engine light came on. It runs horrible and idles rough. Diagnostic done and it said it was possible that it was a ma's fire on cylinder 3, or insufficient air flow. Replaced injector and coil pack. Replaced o2 sensors. What could be wrong?

I would replace the plugs before replacing any coils or injectors.

What was the compression?

I don't remember the number but it was fine. Why change the plugs first?

What were the codes retrieved? A cyl 3 misfire would set a p0303. Insufficient air flow is a whole different issue. If u already replaced the coil, and verified compression is good, then try swapping the spark plug to another cylinder, clear the code, and see if the misfire moves to that cylinder. Process of elimination.
