Hi my name randy I have a 1995 f150the truck ran great when I frist got it. But I wanted to put a tune up on it and I did also put a 02 sencer idle control air control plugs wires cap rotor, and now it has a miss to it. I tried driving it no power and when I look under the truck the catalac converter was beat red. Could you please help i've spent a lot of money and it seen like the more new stuff I put on the worst it runs.

Thank you Randy from fl

Well i went on line and got the firing order but i have a 5.0 its funny because all i did was check the plug in the #5 cilder and i cracked the plug so i needed to change it. i did and then thought well maybe i did put the wires on wrong,so i moved them one up i think. After that it stared that miss.On the front of the truck theres the firing order i went by that,and also went on line.it seems like the #5 is dead theres fire but when you pull the wire nothing changes in the motor. i was told the vale was not closeing but that dosent make sence because all i did was change the plug didnt drive it at all and before that it ran fine. please help.

Thank you Randy
