You didn't mention new spark plug wires. They go bad too.

If engine compression has ben checked and it shows that it is low, then the engine needs to be rebuilt or replaced. No matter what kind of new ignition parts you put into it, your not going to raise the cylinder compression without rebuilding it.

Change the plug wires and also check the camshaft sensor. When mine showed a number three misfire it also showed as the camshaft sensor. Its very easy to do yourself. Takes about ten to 15 minutes.
