CAn you run a cylinder balance test? Loosen the spark plug wires, and with engine idling, remove one wire at a time. Engine should continue to run. If engine dies when one wire is removed, the opposite cylinder is not firing. May have one bad coil. You may have to run the test when engine is hot and missing to find the bad one.
