The mechanics around my town suck. They cant figure out why the car is misfiring on cylinder #1. The car has the 24 valve dohc engine. I have had people say that it is the drivetrain, the fuel system, the plugs or wires, the timing and a bunch of other bogus diagnostics. ? Is it possible that the coil on the #1 cylinder is going bad? (Like I keep telling them)if so where is the coil pack and how do I swap the bad coil. I have replaced virtually all fuel system componets, had the drivetrain thoroughly inspected at a transmission shop, would love to know how to check the timing on a car that doesn't have a distributor in the first place, : and whose timing is computer controlled. HELP!

Engine misfiring can be caused by burned valves or by some internal engine problem. Intermittent misfiring is usually caused by an ignition problem. Check for the following:
fouled or worn spark plugs
improperly gapped spark plugs
Damaged insulation on secondary wires, or disconnected wires
Cracked distributor cap
Carbon tracks in rotor
worn didtributor shaft
