    Finally got my cyl misfire fixed

    I had been haviong this problem with cyl 3 misfire. I changed all the plugs, had the fuel injecotrs cleaned (cyl 3 was the worst of them all). It still came back as cyl 3 misfire so i swapped the coil packs on 1 and 3 and then cyl 1 misfired. The new coil pack finally came in and now he is running just fine. I sucked cause if i tried to give it gas a low RPm the car ran like crap. NOw that it is fixed she 's back to her normal self.

    Well cyl 3 was the bad one. for some reason the guy i bought it from took off the heat shield for the turbo and heat from that just broke down the coil pack were it wouldn't like to work to hard at low RPM. The car felt really jumpy and ran like ****. But if i was a high RPM above 5k it ran fine didn't misfire for some reason. But all is well got a new one on there and it seems to work fine now.

    No im talking about the coil pack that gives the power to the spark plug to make it spark. There about 120 bucks a piece. but replace them and they should work fine.

    Exact same thing happened to me, turned out to be cyl 3 bad injector, so check the injectors.

    I would also pull your injectors out and have them cleaned. I have always run 91 octane but my injectors were still dirty. I would get them all cleaned
