#3 misfire-replace plug,coil,removed intake plenum,cleaned all passages,replaced all gaskets,adjusted valves,all injectors resistance readings are the same (.013/.014). removed injectors & flow tested,all o/k.no vacuum leaks, compression tested @ 220psi,never over heated,no blown head gasket,pulled coil,attached coil to plug,started engine to watch for spark-good spark,t belt @ 110k/present mileage 139500. removed new plug in #3- extreme lean electrode !!!!!!!-help ???????
Could be a fault in the #3 injector wiring, with the engine running back probe the wiring at the injector with a led trouble light it should glow at each pulse. a pulse can be felt by holding the injector if you have no light. compare with # I&2.
