To whom it might concern: I was experiencing all of thee misfire problems and replace all which might cause the, it was not until check another sight out which offered possible solution I had not considered; Verbatim: " Number 1 injector harness control wire( black) has a break in it causing all the above issues. You can replace the short harness or find the break in the wire and repair it. I found the break in the harness about two inches back from connector, it makes a hard bend back in to the loom". I took the advice of the person who delivered the above information and solved my 6 month old problem. I do not know who he is, but I take my hat off to him.. Good Luck.
