New spark plug and coil installed. Also new crankshaft position sensor. Cyl. compression is OK (12,5 kg as in the neighboring cyl.1). Fuel injectors replaced, spark plug is wet (fuel is comming). The diod connected to fuel injector wire is flashing the same as in other cylinders. So the fuel is coming, the spark plug is working, don't know what is the reason of missfire.

    miss fires are caused by low compression, plug failure, coil failure, injector failure, vacuum leak and in last resorts, pcm failure.

    As I wrote before I've tried various plugs, replaced coil wire, change with places fuel injectors. The compression is normal and even higher than in neighbouring cyl#1. The diod-lamp connected to fuel-injector wire is flashing. Could it be the valve-group mulfunction?

    No, Roy, the noise level is normal. Something is ticking but it could be the spark sound also.
