How many miles does your car have? If its over 100k or even 80k I would seafoam your car. Hear it helps clean out the car runs smoother and cleaner idle.

Thanks guys I was gonna switch the coil to a different spot but it's 30 miles to autozone and I don't have a tuner so I can't just swap and scan an see if the coil is the problem, I guess I'll check the plugs and wires for now and see about doing that diagnostic

If you have another vehicle I believe they loan tools at autozone. So you could rent a scan tool and verify that way. Bring the scanner home and swap the coil to another cylinder and check if it follows. Just a suggestion to try to save you some dinero$.

I'm almost positive it's the spark plug or the coil I've eliminated everything else as being the problem
