Cylinder 6 misfire help

Ok so I have had a lot I help on this topic. But need to ask this question. The other day I was diagnosing this issue of my car stalling. Me and a mechanic was on the issue of the maf was bad. So we were disconnecting and reconnecting it while vehicle was running. Read the codes. And it pulled up misfire cylinder six as a pending code. I clears the code. Drove it around. No pending code has piped up again. Took spark plug out. It looks brand new and boot a spring look good too. My ? Is would me messing with maf cause that code to pop up. I have two options I'm about to do. Say f it and do a complete tune up and or send it to a mechanic that I know had 20 years experience that helps soldier on my bass. Any of your advise would be great.

I wrote a long explanation to ask if me messing with the maf would pop up that code. Cause I'm not popping up a code anymore

car still shakes and wants to stall out?
if it threw a code for miss fire its more then likely a slight misfire. or something related. And based on what your having issues with.. seems more then likely the cause. Go to a junk yard if you cant afford 40 dollars and take a coil from one of the mustangs or crown vics.
Maybe someone else will throw in there opinion on it. But I have no idea why you would try and fix every part other then the one it is telling u it is lol especially how its probably the easiest part to change

How would switching it to a different cylinder show him if its the cop or not? The check engine light doesn't go off every time.
wouldn't that just move the problem to another cylinder?
or if its not even the cop wouldn't he still have the same issues he's having now? resulting in still not knowing what's wrong.
Or spend 40 bucks put the part on and if the problem stops perfect
if it doesn't well you have a coil for when one does go bad eventually.

Turbocobra has been right on the money with needing a new cop. However, if the code is intermittant, i personaly doubt that its the cause of ALL your problems..... but ive been wrong before..

Swapping coils will tell you if the coil is bad if the misfire code follows the coil.

FWIW, you can take a chance on el cheapo COPs on ebay for about $8 a piece. They have a high failure rate, but if you are pinching pennies, its better than nothing. Just buy more than one, in case you get one thats DOA. Its not the "correct" solution, but at that price, it may be worth experimenting with.

Or you could take a look at Rockauto. They probably have something within your budget.
I also have a 5% discount code. If you or snyone else is interested, I'll post it.

Thanks everyone for your input. I can be stubborn sometimes. So sorry for that. I was told by experience mechanics it was the iac and TPS changed them both. Car is running better but still does it. That's why i was iffy about buying more parts. I got this car at a good price. And I'm not close to spending what it is worth. I am also pinching pennies right now also. But I will try and just buy the cop and test that out. I think I saw one for like 20 on rock auto. Any suggestion on which one to by in rock auto.

The only COP that I can recommend, in good conscience, is the Motorcraft.
I wouldn't even know which would be second best.

Here's the Rockauto discount code though...
2422569122511173
Enter it in the "How did you hear about us" line of the shopping cart and then click the apply button.

mine is some cheap one but has a year warranty and fixed my issue so whatever. changing one cop with a generic one isn't going to affect the power in my car.
Actually it restored a lot of lost power. My car must have had a slight miss for a while now because after I changed the cop it runs better then I ever thought it would in its current condition.

How much does one normally cost. I was looking at the site the other night. Is it one assembly or in parts. Got kinda confused.

They range from about $15 for the cheap ones to $42 for the Motorcraft.
They are the complete coil.
