I was driving home one day and just started missing and went into limp mode cylinder 3 was the code. I have changed all the plugs and coils and it still misfires in cylinder 3 and 1 I have switched coils and plugs around and it doesn’t follow it it stays on 3 and 1.

Hi,

The next thing I would check would be compression and the fuel injector for cyl 3. It may be stuck or not operating. Also, low compression will cause a misfire as well.

Here are a couple of links to help. The first explains how to check an injector.

When checking the injector, make sure it is getting a pulse (power) to fire.

Here is a link showing how to check engine compression:

Try these things and let me know the results. Also, let me know if you have other questions.

Take care and God Bless.
