Hello I'm new here and me and my friend were changing out the spark plugs and the wires too fix a misfire and we successfully fixed the misfire but now since we did that the front 3 fuel injectors aren't functioning properly and it feels like it isn't getting enough gas which is what I would assume the issue is but we can't find any reason as too why they aren't because the cylinders are still firing

How do you know the front three injectors (2/4/6) aren't firing?

Is it possible you mean injectors 1/3/5 aren't firing? They're all on the same black four-wire electrical connector in the center of the picture below:

I would first re-set everything. Clear the codes and then disconnect your battery for a 1/2 hour or so then reconnect it. You may have some codes that are older and will clear. Then give us the numbers for the codes you have left. ....J.D

The check engine light is on and it's pulling 6 codes 2 for temp sensors and 3 for fuel injectors 1,3, and and the other one is for the transmission range control
Injectors 1, 3, and 5 are the rear injectors, closest to the firewall. In your first post you said the "front three injectors" weren't firing, which are 2, 4, and 6. So based on your update in posts 4 and 5, we know 1, 3, and 5 are the ones generating codes.

Check that the B-48 connector in the picture is fully seated, and that your grounds are all attached to the plenum. Having that plug not connected is the most likely cause of injectors 1, 3, and 5 to all not work at the same time.

Whether the connector was loose or not, clear your codes and see if the injector codes are still there or not.

Idk how but you said you changed out spark plugs and wires to fix and misfire that you successfully fixed but the front 3 injectors are not functioning properly which would mean you still have a miss fire but you fixed the miss fire. That seems really odd also how did you check that the injectors are working properly, did you noid the injectors? Did you have them flow tested? Did you use a oscilloscope? Did you ohm check them? Theres a lot wrong with how the diagnosis is going about.

So I was able too get back too the car and i didn't see the connector you referenced in your photo
I have found the issue I found that connector and the wiring inside of it had broken so I just have too replace that connector
Sorry if I led you astray with my picture of a 2001 GT. But glad you found the connector in the end! It could always be something else, but your symptoms were so specific to that one connector.
