Possible causes; Faulty spark plug (s), Faulty ignition coil (s), Clogged or faulty fuel injector (s), Intake air leak, Fuel injectors harness is open or shorted, Fuel Injectors circuit poor electrical connection, Ignition coils harness is open or shorted, Ignition coils circuit poor electrical connection, Insufficient cylinders compression, Incorrect fuel pressure.

not firing on #4? mine is doing same thing turned out a stretched timing chain. good in the pedal but at an idle misses . do you have noise like rocker arm clicking could have a valve stuck down also
