You dont say what engine you have but this is the most commmon. The cylinders are numbered 1-2-3-4 front to back on the pass. side and 5-6-7-8 on the drivers. Pull the #1 plug and bump the starter and when you feel the piston come up on compression, turn the engine slowly intil the timing mark is on top deae center. Pull the cap and where the rotor is pointing is where #1 wire goes. Then contimue with the wires. 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8 in a counterclockwise direction. #1 wire should be just to the right of center in the back when viewed from the front of the engine unless it has been changed.

The main reason a car misfires is because the spark plug wires are not installed correctly. Check the car's firing order to ensure the spark plug wires running from the distributor cap to the spark plugs (in the cylinders) are in the right order. One or more spark plugs could be damaged or worn so the firing order is correct, but the spark plugs are not sparking into the spark plug wires to ignite the engine.
