Okay, I'm a boy. Stupid, but I know a little about cars. Ok, I am going to ask you a few questions. First, do you have a service Engine soon light? How did this parts supply clerk determine it was a missfiring no.1 cylinder? Can you tell us which type of engine you have in your car? (4 cylinder or 6 cylinder)
If indeed your no.1 cylinder is missfiring, then there are a ton of things that can cause this. Bad plug, wire, coil pack, fuel injector. Ect.
Did the parts guy say no.1 cylinder was missfiring, or bank 1 has a missfire?
As for your boyfriend fixing the problem, I would say he should be able to fix it as long as it isnt a major internal problem with the engine. Just have him do some trouble shooting before replacing a bunch of parts and costing a good bit of money.
