Question about 2000 Ford Crown Victoria
I bought a 2000 crown victoria police interceptor with a 4.6 v8 and after a day the engine light came on, so i took it to get checked and it said that cylinder 4 had a misfire. the car only has 98k on it and it runs very strong but i do feel some roughness accelerating. any tips or thoughts about what i can do to fix the problem?
First cylinder 4 is the last on the passenger side . first pull the coil out and check if there is water where the plug is. if there is take the water out and dry up the coil. if you find water you got a crack manifold or a bad intake manifold gasket. if there is no water replace the coil. good luck

Try replacing the spark plug on that cylinder also check spark plug wire, it may need cleaning with a small wire brush on the contact. Also check to see if it is gapped properly.
