If it stops missing when it shifts down and quits pulling hard, Yes wires and plugs will probably fix it. Put Motorcraft stuff on it unless you want to do it twice.

There are oxygen sensors before and after the cats. The one before monitor air fuel AKA upstream. These oxygen sensors are made from the same metals as spark plugs. They need to be changed to keep their sensitivity.
