One morning I started the car & it ran rough & I got a service engine light. I replaced the plugs, wires, cap & rotor. It runs a little better but I still get this code PO301. I can't get it inspected until I get this code to go away. I have a 5.7 L with thottle body injection so it can't be the injector or the one coil. I unpluged the EGR valve & got a low input voltage reading. I unplug the sensor before the MAF sensor & nothing happens. Is this the problem? I can't aford to take it to the Cadi dealer. Please help.

A 2000 Escalade should not have throttle body injection, ( although it does have a throttle body)
It should have one injector per cylinder located below the upper intake manifold along with the fuel pressure regulator.
On these engines faulty injectors were quite common, unfortunately you cannot see them without removing the upper intake manifold to expose what is called the spider.
If you know someone with a snap on scanner, you can perform an injector balance test to see if the injector is working properly. If not you may just have to take a chance and replace the injector.
You can also try a good injector cleaning, this may help depending on how bad shape it is in.
Hope this helps!

I would say its your coil pack for #1 cylinder, exchange with another 1 from another cylinder and see if misfire changes to that cylinder, if it doesnt then go for the Injector
