    Hello. My fathers 1997 Ford Explorer 5.0L has been misfiring on cylender 2. Hes replaced all plugs, wires, and the coil pack that runs cylender 2, treated gas with water and fuel injector cleaner. Its missi g in idle and occasionally pops when giving gas. Any good advice would be valued!

    Check the compression on cylinders 1-2 and 3.

    If they are close in pressure value, I suspect a faulty fuel injector.

    They are readily available at auto parts stores for around 25.00 , maybe less. You need to have one to go any further on this.
