Default P0301 Error Code 2002 Mustang 3.8L V6

We have a 2002 3.8L V6 mustang that is very sluggish when taking off and seems to miss will cruising at a constant speed. The check engine light came and I had AutoZone tell me the code.

It is a P0301 which is cylinder 1 misfire. They told me the OEM cross number was P0316 which is the crank sensor failure.

I replaced the crank sensor and nothing changed...

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks for the reply.

Not yet but after reading all the threads I guess will do the following:

Change fuel filter
Change plugs
Change plug wires
Change coil packs
Change air filter

Hope all this works! Any other ideas, please let me know.

Thanks,
