2002 4.6l v8 Cylinder 1 misfire
My 2002 4.6L triton V8 has been giving me all sorts of issues on cylinder 1. It began when the plug was blown from the cylinder. I had the cylinder bored, tapped and an insert installed by my mechanic. The COP and plug were replaced. About 200 miles later, it started to run rough on the highway, and check engine light came on. P0301 came up... misfire on Cylinder 1. I pulled the plug and saw that the electrode was burned off. I replaced the plug and the fuel injector, and swapped the COP with another known good cylinder. I still have a constant misfire on Cylinder 1 that shakes the truck. I can hear the injector tapping when I place a screwdriver on the injector and place the handle to my ear.
I have access to an autotap if any engine performance parameters would be useful, just let me know, and I'll post the numbers.
