Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There are quite a few things that can cause misfiring. The problem may be with the ignition system, it may be an injector related issue, it could be a localized vacuum leak causing a single cylinder to run lean, or it could be an internal engine issue.

Have you taken a fuel sample?

Did you test compression on the other cylinders for comparison?
