MODELS CYLINDER 3 MISFIRE

1999 Mitsubishi Other

Engine Performance problem
1999 Mitsubishi Mirage 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles

Getting a code of " cylinder 3 misfire, " I've changed the plugs, wires, and dist. Cap. Compression is good. All injectors making clicking noise (heard through stethescope). I changed the injector for cylinder 3 (if they're 1-2-3-4, left to right looking from the front--not sure that's the right one). It seems to idle and cruise ok, but acceleration (especially from a stop) is slow and uneven. Any suggestions?

Check to see if teh valve lash is in spec, if not adjust. Also check valve timing, if both ok maybe you have a flat spot on your cam
