I'm sorry, the system hasn't notified me that you replied.

If you have replaced all of those items and still have a misfire on #3, you may have a intake manifold vacuum leak or the wiped camshaft lobe on #3 or perhaps a loss of compression on #3, that is if while you were flushing the injectors you had confirmed that #3 fuel injector is in fact working.
