Cylinder, fuel injector, exhaust, white smoke

I have a TJ Wrangler.. couple weeks ago my engine light came on, went to diagnosis it, came back the following:

number 3 cylinder, high fuel pressure, injector, and a couple other codes with in this notion.

i have changed out the spark plugs and number three was completely black, burnt out. put a new one in and ran fine for a week. light came back on ran the diagnosis again, same codes.

before changing out the injector I put in a injector cleaner before my last fill up hoping to clear the problem, but didnt. Replaced the old injector with a new one and still doing the same thing. I have been running it to help clear the code, but no luck.

No leaks

rough idle, white smoke, smell of fuel.

Could be getting coolant in that cylinder, worth a look.
Remove plug after letting the the vehicle sit for awhile after a run.
Get a really bright flashlight and look through the spark plug hole, bring the piston up to tdc to have a look.

just my first idea, I have many lol.

Is your engine consuming coolant? White exhaust is normally from coolant... often from the coolant getting into the engine via a blown head gasket.

When you have a choice, buy American.

A cooling system pressure test coupled with a compression test will answer the white smoke question.

It is possible the the coil pack could be bad. Not sure if you can swap with a good one or not but that would confirm it if the problem moves. Check the boot, too. A torn or punctured boot can cause a miss fire as well.

all boots are in good condition. no tears or punctures. everything is firing. so far no white smoke upon starting and revving in place.. will take it for a test drive and see what happens. you guys are big help test drove it lots of white smoke going to do a pressure test on cooling system. why would
compression test come put good if gasket is creaked and not using water?
