To find bad spark plug or wire, disconnect plugs one at a time at the coil, drive the vehicle a couple hundred feet, note how badly that disconnected plug affects the running.

Works after you’ve done this at idle (sometimes problems only show up under load) and examined them in the dark for sparks.
