Check what is the sequencing of the wires incase they may have been wrongly attached and also check your coil incase that it may be the one triggering the misfire.

Check your wire connection and spark plug gap for this cylinder. Use another wire to see if that one is defective. You may need a new coil.

Try and test your coil packs because thats the next step after plugs and wires. Plus usually with a misfire it has to do with the coil packs.

I believe the tacomas use companion cylinders so a coil would create 2 misfires. It more likely that the plug had a small crack or was gapped inproperly. If thats not the case you need to make sure the wires r on corectly. they may be lose on the plug. if that dont work swap two of the coil packs.

If you are being given that error, then it is probably a piston itself or could be something in the wiring. I would try the piston first because electrical on a vehicle can be very tricky to mess with and if the wrong thing is done, you could fry your whole vehicle.

A misfire with new plugs and wires can mean that the cylinder might be losing compression or there could be a bad terminal on the distributor for the #1 cylinder.

Well a misfire indicates an ignition issue. I would try checking the ignition coil. If it is a newer truck it should have one per cylinder and the #1 on is probably going bad. Also make sure the plugs are gasped correctly and the engine is in time.
