Default 2002 dodge ram 1500 misfire in the morning

got a 2002 dodge and 2nights ago it ran fine yesterday morning it was misfiring and got p0307, ive got the code before and a mechanic replaced the tps because it was too low of an idle(did that 3-4days ago). so last night i checked plug wires and changed them with ones from my 318 2nd gen and no code smooth running, etc. so this morning same thing real rough didnt idle some misfiring, etc. anyone know what to look for? already got plugs, wires, cap and rotor changed.

Is the sparkplug gap correct? You may want to check the connections between the coil and the ECM. Check the inside of the distributor cap, maybe you have some corrosion on a terminal. Start out with the basic stuff, cap, rotor, spark plug gap, coil, etc...

different vehicle entirely but we had this problem with my bosses 1991 toyota 4runner v6 4x4. it took us literally 4 weeks to figure this out, his problem wasn't bad spark plugs or wires (changed twice with different brands) or anything like that. It was all his tps not being in the right position. It would idle rough, and misfire especially when he accelerated or on hills. Make sure the tps is in the right position and go from there to check down other timing issues
