check the distributor rotor to see if there is any burn marks on it, and check the point of contact between the contact on the distributor cap, and rotor. It also helps to take a small paint brush, and clean everything with some kerosene. Also, see if there is any oil in the cylinder. if not, the fuel injector is partially/fully clogged.

Check the condition of the plugs you have installed. See if you can find one which has an irregular color. The spark plug should be dry and brown in color. The problem could be just in one or a few cylinders. More than one cylinder may mean a problem with the ignition coil. If it were just one we can isolate it into the components connected to the cylinder.
If you have the SES light on as well, it may be a bad O2 sensor or a bad catalytic converter. Check for the wiring that goes to the O2 sensor. The computer may not be getting the correct reading on how much fuel burned causing the misfire.

If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.
I know the elm327 plastic 1.4 can help you reset the code....
If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.
