The check engine light came on so I put my scanner on it and it said that cylinder 2 and 6 was misfire so I replaced those 2 spark plugs and it still read the same so I changed all the plug wires and it is still reading that cylinder 2 and 6 has the misfire and the truck still has a miss so what could be the problem?

Do you
have the same problem?

Have you checked the compression on those cylinders?You made sure you had a nice blue spark on those two cylinders?

Yes I have did this and the compression is good on both of them. It only missing while its idle but when I run it on the road it runs fine but when I stop at a red light it misses again
