Check the distributor cap for cracks or any other damage. Make sure the wire to #1 is not damaged and arcing to ground. Depending on the ignition type, it could be other problems. If it's misfiring on two of the cylinders it could also be that #1 wire is cross-connected with that of another cylinder.

Where is the number one plug 2002 Mitsubishi Montero?

If you get into a position where you can look at the entire engine from above you should/will be able to tell where each of the spark-plugs are relative to the front of the engine.On virtually every internal combustion engine ever made the number 1 plug will always be the one closest to the front ( or fan-belt end ) of the engine (or, to put it another way, farthest from the transmission end of the engine). The rare exceptions to this rule "swap" the ends putting number 1 closest to the rear of the engine, but Misubishi does not do that).On a V-type engine look at both cylinder banks and you will see that one entire bank is just a bit farther forward than the other. The forward one will have the number 1 cylinder/spark-plug .Hope this cleared it up for you, good luck.

Why your 1996 engine wont work in your 1995 f-150?

We'd really need to know more about your engine swap in order to answer this. Such as, was it the same engine? If you were trying to swap in, say, a V8 where a V6 or an inline six originally set, and treat it as a "plug and play" application, then you're going to have to reprogram the ECM. Whether that's the case or not, we have no way of knowing... there were several engine options available for those years.
