You need an OBD2 reader, the paper clip trick is for OBD1.

Pull all the coils and plugs and dry everything out. Seal all the rubber boots with dielectric grease.

Start pulling wires off coil pack while running. Pull the wires far enough away to notice change in engine while misfiring. Isolate to which one is misfiring.
