Question: Would computer be bad if I have a mis fire and the service engine light doesn’t come on?

I have replaced plugs, wires, router, cap, coil, control mondule, distributer, fuel pump, fuel filter and it is stilling mis firing! The computer sensor light doesn’t come on, but its still not running right! What am I missing?
