Default Aching from all 4 plug wires

Hi Guys I posted an ad a few weeks ago, I have a 99 ranger 2.5 2wd. I noticed the back ignition coil had a burn hole in the coil. I replaced it but notice now when I touch the top of the spark plug boot on the coil when its running that I get a shock almost like a tingling feeling from all 4 spark plug wires. I did check the grounding on all 4 mounting plates. They are old wires but would this cause all 4 to be suspect? Or did I get a bad coil? thanks for the help

Sounds like a wire problem, meaning that the insulation is shot. Have you run the engine at night to see if there is any leakage?
