Swap coils with a different cylinder. If the misfire moves to cylinder you switched coils with then replace that coil if not then replace cylinder 2 spark plug.

It's possible a misfire could be a long list of possible problems. What I told you to do is the simplest and most common things you see when you get a misfire fault. If that doesn't fix it I would take it to a ford dealership and get everything on paper and make sure they list the problem is fault due to oil over fill and take it back to the lube place and have them pay for your repairs.

Also helps if you have a scan tool with a power balance to note the miss or atleast a scanner with mode 6 so you dont have to clear the light and wait it to reset

Thing with aftermarkets like the accells is you'll have to match all 8 for it to run right but Oreillys should have some quality ones

Blow it out with a blow gun (the plug hole) go to Autozone and get a new boot they are available seperate

---------- Post added at 11:50 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:48 AM ----------

Oh and don't hose the engine off with water! Number one thing customers do when their is water I ask and everyone of them says they sprayed it off with water get a steam cleaners much safer

---------- Post added at 11:53 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:50 AM ----------

Also just saw your rusted spring sometimes the boot comes with a spring it just pulls off, note the arrow on the coil and flat spot on the boot as they must line up

That's a cool driver code, is it plugged in? Possible wire damage such as mice chewing it or corrosion or worst case bad PCM, also RF interference between radio PCM and other electronics causing it

What about drilling small holes to let the water out sounds like a crazy idea? But every time it rains, snows or I wash my car this is going to happen

---------- Post added at 04:28 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:27 PM ----------

No it wasn't plugged in and I havnt done anything to the electrical lately

---------- Post added at 04:32 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:28 PM ----------

So it looks like I'll just have to replace the coils to solve the problem im just worried that this problem is going to keep happening...

Drilling holes will only permit more water.
The coil was NOT plugged in? This is why your getting a code for it then.
I'd start with replacing just the one coil before you blow 700 plus bucks
