engine seems to misfire at lower speeds, one of the plug wires was connected to the

lower speeds.

Check the condition of the wires, you might have a rip or tear.

My experience had been when installing the front plug wires and after placing them beneath that blk. plastic cover there is a tendency to pull them causing the wires to break. Recheck each wire to ensure they are good. Good luck.
