Why do you get repeated cylinder 3 misfire on 1996 Ford explorer even after replacing plugs and wires?

Run a compression test and see how #3 stacks up. Possible burnt valve or blown head gasket.

Check your plug again on cylinder 3. Sometimes you can crack the plug installing it.

You also can check cylinder 3 injector.
