If you didn’t change plug wires, cap and rotor, those could be causes. Also, the distributor itself would have to be tested. As far as the fuel injectors, you just want to be sure they are actually getting a signal, that is they are electrically connected. If you cannot find a fault in the ignition system or fuel supply, check compression in the misfiring cylinders as there could be a mechanical cause of the misfiring. If you want these steps performed by a certified Mechanic, dispatched by YourMechanic right to your location, please request a misfiring diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will get this diagnosed and resolved for you. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic.
