cylinder misfire

my buddy has a 1998 tacoma sr5. I dont know if this matters but it is 4x4 and has 6 inch lift with 35's. Recently the truck started misfiring on cylinders 3 and 5 now i don see how 2 sparkplugs could foul out at the same exact time but we checked anyway and there was nothing wrong. i assumed something was wrong wit the ignition coils so he decided one day he would just switch the coils around one day and see. well now cylinders 3 5 and 6 are all misfiring, I have no idea whats wrong so i turn to you guys if anyone has any ideas the help would be great

Exactly which coils did he rearrange (and in exactly what way) that resulted in the misfire spreading to cylinder 6 as well?

Is his check engine light coming on at all?
we finally jus took it to a shop this morning and its fixed there was a short in the main power supply which had those 3 coils on it and it wasn gettin enough power to ignite those cylinders but thanks for the help anyway
Glad you got it fixed ... :waytogo:
