Umm, so according to the haynes book and the firing orders on here, my 3.0 has the spark plug wires backwards. Apparently my 123 plug wires are on the 456 side of the coil. WTF. I have no cel's, but I do have a misfire? I'm double checking myself like 40 times, but i'm pretty sure the firing order is wrong.

Try the wiring the other way just to see if it throws a code in your face.

LOLZ. Well apparently all the wiring diagrams don't apply to any truck newer than 02. I went onto Cars.com and looked at a shitload of other 3.0 Rangers from 02-05, and they all had the same firing order as I do.

But anyways, new plugs and wires are in. And as I thought, it did not fix my bogging down/ low(rough) idle issue. Gonna play with the transmission wires later today or tomorrow and see if something is amiss there.

If I had more money, it would have happened already. But this problem has very little to do with the engine, more of either a wiring or a transmission problem. A manual swap would be better suited for this truck.
