Hello. The misfire that you are getting on that cylinder may be caused by a dirty or failing fuel injector. If compression is fine and if there is good ignition then it may be a fuel issue. If the engine tends to run fine, then it may just be a bad crankshaft position sensor that is reading incorrectly. I usually start by checking the signal from the crank sensor and doing a balance test of the engine to see if all cylinders are working correctly. If not, then I can narrow down the issue. I have seen a lot of problems with lifters going bad and not opening the intake valve enough on this engine as well as excessive carbon build up causing this. If you are going to have this cylinder misfire repaired, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose the misfire and follow through with proper repairs.
