I was driving down the street truck started shaking then check engine light came on. Gave a code that the 4th was misfiring. I changed all the plugs and witres and truck is still shaking and almost ready to die when at a stop light, When i step on the gas it tries to even itself out. What else should I be looking for?

    I would look to see if you have a secondary ignition issue or possible a mechanical (compression) issue.
