Default Had the same issue

Check fuel pressure regulator, my cavalier had a misfire when i got it same cylinder 4 did ignition coil spark plug and fuel injector before i realised the fuel pressure regulator diaphragm was leaking. Its easy to check with a piece of tube and a hand held vacuum pump you can even borrow one from your local autozone. Through there loaner program. Just put down the deposit and get your money back when your done. If your close to your parts guy they may even let u use it in the parking lot.
