2002 Ford Escape V6 3L - 4&6Cyl misfire. I check : fuel pressure (OK), compression (OK), coils (OK), spark plugs (new), injectors(OK) but I don't now if is signal from computer. Catalytic converter on this side is melted inside. Only 304 & 306 codes in memory.
2 years ago same side cylinder. Misfire and cat was melted. I put new cat and new coils / plugs.
How did you check fuel pressure and the injectors?

I rent fuel pressure test kit - with engine off and running was 65psi. I don't now if fuel pressure regulator is good - no change when I disconnect vacuume hose. When pressure was on I check each injector for (spray) by two wires + & -. They was working (no leaking).

Are the injectors being pulsed when you try and start the engine? Will it start if yo spray carb cleaner in the intake?

I have no problem to start engine but is not working on 4 & 6 cyl. - Is shaking.

Disconnect the fuel injector harness and measure the resistance of #s 4 and 6. See attached for specification.

I would also check compression and make sure the injectors are being pulsed.

Resistance is OK, I check all 6. Compression is 195-205 at all 6 cyl.

Can you move the individual injectors around? Like put #3 into #4, and #5 into #6, and vice versa. See if the problem follows the injectors. What about plug wire impedance?
If I recall this has a distributor. What does it look like? What about the cap?
