Here is the firing order
4-8
3-7
2-6
1-5
As long as the misfire isn't random , you more than likely have a bad coil or plug.
Swap the plug with a known working plug. If the misfire follows the plug, more than likely just a bad plug. If the misfire stays in the same place look further into it.
This vehicle is known for intake leaks. WHile the vehicle is misfiring spray some carb cleaner near the first cylinder. If the vehicle responds to the external fuel, then you have an intake leak.
Let me know if yu have any other questions. Tim@10w40.com
