missfire, and rough/ bouncing idle at start

first off i read and searched all the idle threads before posting.
so i have a 2000 base model mostly stock aside from some bolt ons. i have not had any problems in the 7 months ive had the car. since then ive replaced plugs with manufacturers recommended and so on.
so on to the problem, i filled up the other day and parked the car shortly after and it say for 3- 45 min on start up it had a slightly rough idle but picked up and acted normal. on the way home CEL come on and i go ahead and stop to get the codes its a missfire in cyl 3 and a random missfire. ive checked plugs and wires, egr as well, all good. coudl it have been the gas? should i seafoam it and go from there? any help would be great
