The compression is ok, vaccum line ok, what else could it be? When you come to a stop and it idles it kicks back a little not all the time. We also put a MAF sensor.

Hi there,

you will need to get a read out of the actual Kva ignition readings when it misfires, this will prove the ignition system one way or the other, but if it is only 1 cyl, you may have to re check the ignition system for No 6 not just visually but with testing equipment this may now be a job for your mechanic, let me know if you need technical information, I will post what I can.

Hi there,

this may be a fault with in the ECU, I would talk to an independent work shop about trying a test unit( This is an ECU that has been confirmed that it has no defects) this will prove the ECU to be good or day, I would go here next.
