Icon8 Misfire cylinder #2

So about 2 weeks ago i got a CEL. Was misfire in cylinder #2. So basically plugs, wires or dizzy? right?...i just replaced the plugs with 4 new NGK iridiums, and got a CEL again. havent got it checked but im sure its the misfire again. so should i go ahead and get me some NGK wires too? or try and replace the rotor button and see if that helps? or any other advice?

Re: Misfire cylinder #2

did u check the rotor and cap? are they in bad condition?
edit: if they look good go for wires
also theres the module in the cap behind the rotor, that might be fried u can remove it and have it tested at autozone

Re: Misfire cylinder #2

I would start with wires, rotor, cap
It is not necessarily an ignition problem either. You could have a fuel delivery problem, you could have a compression problem, etc.
If the ignition system tune up doesnt fix it I would take a long screwdriver and touch one end to the fuel injector for cylinder 2, listen for a ticking sound, if it is not ticking the injector is not firing.
