Just don't mess with this by yourself. It may take you to more expensive work. Just get it checked by some professional mechanic. A chevy mechanic.

01Softail, did you ever figure out the #4 misfire problem? I just got an 02 with a 4.3 for my son. it has 120k and is having the same problem. has had the problem for 20k been to a couple dealers who went as far as changing timing chain and gear. I had it in the shop for a week and they did compression tests, injector tests and couldn't figure it out. I changed plugs, wires, cap an rotor, ran sea foam, premium fuel (won't run ethanol in anything). I'm about to start looking in to rebuilt heads. Dealer and Chevy mechanics have been worthless!

Im having the same problem on #7 cylinder, i already changed the spark plugs, the wires, swaped the coil from another cylinder, cleaned the throttle but non of those worked because the engine light is still on after being cleared. tomorrow im gonna take my truck to the shop to get the injectors cleaned and i hope that works.

Default Misfire

did anybody do a radiator pressure check? You might have a internal coolant leak. Like a intake manifold gasket or head gasket.

If you have a 4.3 need to check fuel presure after ignition cycled on maybe fuel presure regulator leaking in intake causing misfire,the 4.3 does not use seperate coils but the 4.8 and 5.3 due for those with the v8s listen to injectors with long screwdriver on lower protion and listen for the click sound to see if they sound like others if they sound good gooing to need to do running compresion test and injector drop(balance test).Hope that helps.
