Cylinder 6 Misfire

Hey guys,

My glorious check engine light came on...again. Before it came on and said I had a cylinder 6 misfire, so I replaced all of my spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor. It ran smoother for a couple of days, then the engine light came back on and it feels "laggy" or it hesitates when I drive. I have a bad clutch as well that I'm replacing on Sunday, but I'm trying to distinct the difference between my engine and clutch problems. I went to my local Oil Can Henry's today for them to plug in the diagnostic tester, and what do you know- cylinder 6 misfire again. I'm confused on what else can be done, or what my other problems could be. I obviously have a inline 6, 4.0L engine. Thanks in advance!

Problems I have seen before that caused a 0306. Exhaust leak, bad plug, bad valve, bad plug wire, bad injector.

X2... and that would probably be the only thing.How many miles on motor?Try switching the plug and the wire.I know it's a pain in the *** but you can get bad one of each.You could always pull a compression check also.

What did the plug look like that you took out of #6? Can you post a pic?
