first off, sitting that long, the gas is really bad. drain tank, add some good injector cleaner. may have to have injectors cleaned. change oil and filter, fuel filter. code set because fuel bad. may have even damaged oxygen sensor.

replaced the fuel pressure regulator then it threw po175,p1409,po453. the o2 senor had been changed not that long ago. replacedmaf,iac,o2

is fuel pressure ok? gray smoke and gas smell would indicate an injector stuck open dumping fuel into cylinder all the time. find out which cylinder missing, that will probably be bad injector.

I found the cylinder that is misfiring, if I replace the injector and doesn't work, could it be the wiring? Or is it just the fuel injector?

probably not wiring. possible computer if injector does not fix.
