If this is an overhead cam engine, where the spark plugs are inserted through a tube in the valve cover, the answer is simple. There is most likely a small oil leak around the seals in the valve cover at that cylinder. Compound that with a spark plug boot that may have a slight bit of wear or expansion due to the oil and you will get a small combustion at the upper end of the spark plug, especially on hard acceleration where the ignition coil is forced to put out more voltage. Repair the oil leak, replace the wires and you should be good.

well on how to route the spark plug wires, you just need to keep them away from the exhaust, and make sure to keep them away from any moving parts in the area. Zip ties work wonders on these, and just ensure that they are in their correct location for the corresponding cylinder.

Force is mass times acceleration. If the force is doubled, then the mass must be cut in half to keep the acceleration the same.

thats a little on the worn engine side of compression,but that in itself would not keep it from starting....most likely a fuel or spark problem. you can check fuel pressure with a screw in guage from autozone,and check spark with an inline spark tester from autozone.

What can cause a miss upon acceleration on a 1993 Ford F150 5.8 liter?

A miss on hard acceleration is usually an indication of an ignition problem--coil, spark plug, spark plug wire. Rick I'm a retired ASE Master/L-1 Technician. I still keep current with the latest automotive technology. Visit my blog for cool articles and TSB's:

How is acceleration affected if you apply the same force to two objects of different masses?

Because Force = Mass x Acceleration, if Mass increases, Acceleration must decrease in order to keep the Force the same. And if Mass is decreased, Acceleration must increase to keep the Force the same.
