Why is my f150 misfiring?

Herein, what would make a truck misfire?
Causes include worn, fouled or damaged spark plugs, bad plug wires or even a cracked distributor cap. A weak coil or excessive rotor gas inside a distributor would affect all cylinders, not just a single cylinder. If two adjacent cylinders are misfiring, it's likely the head gasket between them has failed.
Additionally, will a misfire always throw a code? A random misfire code usually means the air/fuel mixture is running lean. But the cause might be anything from a hard-to-find vacuum leak to dirty fuel injectors, low fuel pressure, a weak ignition coil, bad plug wires, or compression problems. Even a dirty MAF sensor can cause a lean code and/or misfire to occur.
Also to know, what causes cylinder 7 misfire?
P0307 indicates that cylinder number 7 is experiencing misfires. A misfire occurs when an insufficient amount of fuel is burning in a cylinder. A misfire from one or more cylinders can be caused by many reasons from a faulty ignition system, fuel system, or internal engine failure.
