Since you have already replaced the plugs and wires, that narrows down what the problem could be. The most likely culprits of your issue are a faulty fuel injector or ignition coil.

I would ask for help from a professional mechanic to come and diagnose what is causing your misfire condition so that necessary repairs can be made.
