Why is my f150 misfiring?

Keeping this in view, 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.

Similarly, 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.
