How about the plug wires, how old are they?

pretty new took plugs out cylinders are firing at plugs. Do u know anything about capasator beside coil pack with a wire coming out of harness into coilpack, all I know is I unhooked it and it ran like crap, ran better when I hooked it back up but still missing also

do a compression test on all the cylinders and see if 2 and 3 have low compression.

If compression is low you will need to take the valve cover off and see if you can see anything if not you will need to disassemble further
