2004 Chevrolet Malibu Question: What would cause a cylinder to misfire?

Low compression from rings or valve problems, failed(ing) injector, vacuum leak, failed(ing) spark plug, ignition coil, etc. Need to have tested to find out why has low compression.

I would have told you the same thing if you had shared that little bit of info when you did the original post. Why did you not share that info?
Still have to determine what the problem actually is. Your coil could be good but you may have caused a problem during removal and replacement.
