Was the spark plug and spark plug boot checked for any issues or did you try and swap the spark plug to another cylinder to see if the misfire changes to that cylinder?

Is the spark plug wet with fuel when checked?

THE MISFIRE CLEARED UP N SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT WENT OUT IF THIS HAPPEN AGAIN SHOULD I CHECK THE PLUG ?
Chevy Mechanic: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 28 days ago

If this happens again I would swap the spark plug with another cylinder and see if the misfire moves to the other cylinder.If it does then replace the spark plug.If the misfire does not move to the cylinder you swapped the spark plug with then I would have the fuel injector tested.I have seen the fuel injector plug up partially or act up and atomize incorrectly causing this fault here as well and the injector has to be replaced to correct this issue.

One of these here will be the cause if it acts up again.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
