Hello I will help you with your question,
Do you think the wire was damaged when it was off? If it was you need to replace the wire then after a few trips where the computer does not detect the misfire.

Copy and paste that link into a new browser tab and let me know if you have further questions. If the wire was the problem and it is now repaired it will take about three trips for the computer to clear the light.
Please let me know if you have further questions
Thank you

I have a cylinder 3 misfire, 121k, its a random one.
121k, its a random one. Yesterday the Check Engine was flashing instead of staying lit. So I read the codes, cleaned the intake solenoid connectors, cleaned the MAF, new plugs, new wires, new ignition coil, vaccum lines are all tight. I am thinking its a sticky valve or a bad injector.
