Have you checked if the injector is getting power with a noid light? Also, if you are sure it is working, have you checked compression in that cylender? Finally, if you pull that plug after the car has run for awhile, is it wet with gas or dry?

Were you getting power? If you are getting fuel and spark, you need to check compression.

I checked power at the injector and I am getting 14.5 volts just like the rest of them. And as soon as I get homw from work I will check compresion at the cylinder. Should there be constant power at the injector at all times. I have also checked the ground to make sure it was getting a good ground and found that it was getting the proper ground.

The injector should pulse power not be consistant. Check to make sure nothing has shorted out causing it to get constant power.

OKAY I RENTED A NOID TESTER AND FOUND THAT THE ELECTRICAL AT THE INJECTOR IS WORKING PROPERLY. I DID A COMPRESSION TEST A DRY ONE AND ONLY HAD 60PSI IN NUMBER FOUR WHEN I WENT TO DO A COMPRESSION CHECK ON THE NUMBER THREE TO COMPARE I BLEW THE HOSE OFF THE FITTING. IT WAS A CHEAP TESTER I RENTED FROM AUTO ZONE BUT THAT JUST GOES TO TELL ME IT HAS TO HAVE AT LEAST 125PSI BUT TO MAKE SURE I AM GETTING THE ONE FROM MY DADS SHOP AND IT IS A GOOD ONE. ALSO I AM GOING TO DO A WET TEST TO SEE IF IT IS MY RINGS OR IF I HAVE A CHIPPED OR BURNT VALVE. DOES THIS SEEM LIKE I AM HEADING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION?

Yes you are going in the right direction. 60 PSI is the cause of the miss. The wet test, like you said, will help you determine if it is a valve or rings.

Let me know what you find.
