Car does not smoke or use oil. Car runs great above 1,000 RPMs. Have misfire on cylinder 2 below 1,000 RPMs. Check engine light is on. I have replaced plugs and coils. Replaced fuel injector for cylinder 2. What could be my problem?

Good evening,

I would service the throttle body. If there is carbon build-up, it will block the passages for air to pass into the engine

I attached a guide for you for the procedure.

I have put seafoam through the throttle body vacuum line. There is no carbon on valves and throttle body is clean. I am sorry I didn t mention that before. Is there anything else I can try?

This could be a vacuum leak. Look around the intake for any hoses that may be cracked or off. If you have a leak, it will run poorly at idle.

If you have a scan tool, check the long-term trim readings to see what the percentage is at idle. It should be close to 0 on the monitor.
