Default driver side cylinders are not firing.

I was driving with out clutching in my 3.0 a while back cause my throw out bearing went out and while I was raggin on the truck my check engine light came on. I fixed the trcks throw out bearing(after weeks) and now I am on to the next problem. I noticed the power was lacking up until you got the rpms up to 2000 and still was slower than normal. I got the codes read and it said it was anyone of the driver side cylnders. I yanked out all the plugs and wires and checked em and there gaps and it still lacks. I did the wires and plugs over last summer so there good still. Ehat should I check now?


What's nxt on the list to check?

I dont think power shifting would have any effect on the plugs not firing. I would say check the coil pack/change it. You say its lacking up to 2k. Does it "kick" in once past 2k rpm...? to give you full power. or still lacking even past 2k?

It almost feels like maybe one of the cylinders kick in once at 2k but possibly one is still not firing.

Its not missing and I don't believe its a compresion problem. But it doesn't have the right amount of hp until 2000 rpm...

Here is a picture of my cap that I replaced. Some of the prongs are not getting contact

I just replaced the cap and rotor... and it is still lacking the same power

Sorry about that jacked up post but those are the 6 prongs inside the cap you see how some are rusted and are not even nicked... still lack of hp after I replace it.
