Default Re: Isolating cylinder misfire issue

When was last time plugs and wires were done? That's a logical place to start.
Have plugs gapped at 0.040, and buy some good brand name wires - I like Crane wires.
Throw a bottle of Lucas injector cleaner in the gas tank.
Since yours is not a turbo, intake manifold has to come off to change plugs, so have them be sure to carefully look at the intake gaskets (the gaskets can be re-used, but sometimes need replacing if there's an intake leak.
