Engine Performance problem
2000 Ford F150 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic

I have a F150 year 2000 the engine light came on and code is P0301 Cylinder 1 misfire detected. So I'am not sure what to do because 2 months ago I just put in new spark plugs and truck was working fine before engine light came on the light came on 2 says ago.

Is the car running ok?. If so have a good autoparts store delete the code from memory. Test drive the vehicle. See if the code returns. If it does repost for more info. Sensors pick up on misfire's for numerous reasons. This could be just a glitch?

Replace coil #1. I generally advise to replace all coils at the same time. As they tend to breakdown in sequence. But for now let's replace #1 to make sure this is the fault?
