i had the same problem with my truck, but my truck was giving me high RPM readings. I also thought it was the spark plugs or wiring, what it was the air control sensor or valve. It wasn't working correctly so the system on the vehicle was guessing how much air it was taking in, and injecting more fuel, causing the cylinder to contain to much fuel and the spark plug not burning all hydrocarbons,, also causing carbon on spark plugs and causing failure to ignition. Called dealership and part was $135.00. hopefully useful information.
