CYLINDER MISFIRE

2004 Honda Element

Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Honda Element 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles

I have a 2004 Honda Element EX with 160,000 miles, and after replacing oxygen sensors, spark plugs, cleaning fuel injectors and checking compression, I still get cylinder 1 misfire codes. I also had the electrical checked out. I'm at a loss and I'm avoiding the dealership since I have no warranty. Have any idea what it could be?

Thanks!

Hello,

Have you check the coil? If not try moving the #1 coil to another cylinder and see what happens. If the cylinder you move the #1 coil to developes the miss replace that coil.

Yeah, did exactly what you said, re: the coil. Coils are fine. I checked the compressions and it read fine, but I didn't actually check the valves specs to see if they need to be adjusted. Think this could be it?
