Default AU 3 problem

my 2002 au falcon ute wont start today. last week I renewed the coil pack and leads, it made a difference and the old girl was running well. a few days ago though while driving along it all of a sudden started to miss and sound like a VW at the same time the taco went dead. next time I started it up taco came back to life still but still missing. I did a compression test all well, new plugs, injectors clicking, take off leads all except number one seemed to matter. all leads secure and in the right position. still starts but still missing with new plugs. took of neg battery to tighten it more while thinking now car still turns over but wont fire up. any ideas folks, early on I was thinking water in fuel or the 100k worn plugs, that taco stopping when it first happened sounds suspect??? , any advice folks Cheers and happy new year. Thankyou
