Was the cylinder misfire there prior to changing the spark plugs? Did it change at all?

Do you have the vehicle identification number available? Any service history other than the spark plugs?

Initially, the check Eng light was on.
Checked gas cap. Went off slightly
Took for a drive, then the check engine light started to flash in a corner.
My friend had a scanner
It said misfire #2 cylinder
So, I thought I would start with plugs
After changing he plugs, I scanned again.
Erased codes through scanner, then the codes popped up again as if they weren't erased.

What model and engine are we working with? Do you have the vehicle identification number available? Did you run a cylinder compression test on all four cylinders?
