Vacuum leak, low compression, defective plug or injector problem.

Ok, timings good,plugs and wires seem ok, compression is good on all cylinders all around 160.put everything back together,seemed to run fine,after a few trips up and down the road,it started doing it again, my alternator is squealing a little, do you think that this could cause a misfire? When it cools off I'll try and disconnect the negative cable on the battery to see if it dies
