As long as they are in the right place, I cannot see how it makes any difference. The spark plug wires are the only thing you disconnected, worked on? Have you check applicable trouble codes, to see if codes point to particular cylinder?
You could try using a digital multi-meter, low voltage setting, engine idling, if it will idle, Touch meter lead to spark plug wire, do not penetrate the insulation or take anything loose, it is an inductive reading, very low tech, non-intrusive. The readings I get, usually, are about.6 or.7 volts. The point is if get a reading bouncing off of zero, that is the wire I want to check.
Maybe you need new spark plug wires or not plugged in all the way?
