Default Piston Misfire

2007 PT Cruiser - piston 1 misfiring causing slight shake while idling and engine light to come on. Changed plugs, wires and coil, still having same problem. Head gasket changed 1/5/09 and not having any signs that head gasket is bad again; no smoke, oil puddles or hot anti freeze smell. ODB test says piston 1 is misfiring no other codes. Also, put in fuel injection cleaner in tank. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Default Re: Piston Misfire

You need a compression check.

Google Search:
A cylinder may misfire due to loss of compression, which may be caused
by a leaking cylinder head gasket, leaking or sticking
cylinder valves, worn pistons, liners or rings, or a
cracked cylinder head or block If loss of compression
pressure causes an engine to misfire, check the
compression pressure of each cylinder
