Eddy,
A bad spark plug or plug wire or fuel injector can cause the fault. When was the last time the plugs and wires were changed?

Take the negative battery off to clear the codes. If the same code comes back, switch plug or wire Number #1 with another plug or wire and see if the code changes.

Your welcome.
You can't see anything wrong with wires also (most of the time) but it's what's inside that counts. Hopefully your problem won't return.
