Hi, I am Mike, welcome. I'm reviewing your question.

The firing order is 13726548.

#1 cylinder is the front one on the passenger side and it goes 1234 front to back. The driver side has 5 in the front and goes front to back 5678.

If you have a misfire on #7 that isn't a spark plug or spark plug wire, isn't a fuel injector compression or a vacuum leak then about the only thing left is a camlobe either intake or exhaust on #7 that has flattened down and not lifting as much as it should. You could remove that valve cover, remove the fuel pump relay so it don't start, have someone crank the engine over with the key and watch and compare those lifts with the other cylinders on that bank and if either on #7 are low, you would have to change the camshaft.

Don't forget to rate me well, so I get credit. If you don't, the deposit you made will just sit there and I won't get my share of it.
