have misfire on cylinder 3; replaced plugs, coil pack and fuel injector
1997 ford escort basic wagon won't pass inspection because of misfire on
cylinder 3. Replaced spark plugs, coil pack, and fuel injector
Have you checked compression. On that cylinder ? Low or no compression. Will cause that dead cylinder issue .it could as simple as carbon keeping the valve from sealing or as complicated as needing a engine or engine rebuild . Have you verified the injector is actually getting it's power /ground i.e. by noid light or test light? Ignition control modules can also cause issues with cylinder misfires on those models . Sorry couldn't be more help but it's going to have to be chased down . Good luck
