How do I fix a random missfire on my 2005 ford taurus?

Asked by Sep 08, 2017 at 11:13 AM about the 2005 Ford Taurus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have replaced muffler, plugs, wires, coil pack,
pullies, belts, battery, done regular maintenance ie
change oil, new fuel pump and filter etc.... Yet the
check engine lightbis still on and shows a random
missfire. What may be the issue? I am thinking
maybe alternator or o2 sensor but I hardly know
much about cars. I am a single mother on a very
low income and I can not afford to take my car to
yet another shop. I can replace parts on my own as
I know what I am doing as long as I dont have to
take the engine block out. The only thing is I am
not good at knowing and finding the answers to
the problems. My vehicle is 5 months past
inspection date and I need my car legal asap. I just
spent $500 getting my car back on the road and I
do not have $350 to do two inspections and $250
worth of work to get it threw the loop hole. Please
help!!!
