I read my engine light and it coded a cylinder 3 misfire, i swapped my coil from 3 to 2 and the misfire didn't follow. So with it not being the coil, i've read around that possible issues could be spark plugs or pcv valve. has anyone else had any issues like this?

Thanks,
Jake

swap plugs and see if the misfire follows the plug. If it's not the plug or the coil, then it could be an injector. I had to replace 2 this past summer, they rarely fail, but I'm proof they do.

pcv valve shouldn't be the issues, the most build up would be on the 4th cylinder, then the 3rd. It's mainly be gunk build up on the valves from the pcv, not the pcv itself.
