Bad injector or bad coil for that clyinder, also carbon build up holding valves open so do a top engine clean and see if that cures it.

    Try lucas gas treatment it will soften up carbon and blow it out without hurting anything add one bottle to a tank of fuel add the lucas first them pump in the gas so it will mix well drive it for a half tank and see if it goes away,the misfire can be caused by carbon buildup around the valves even with good compresson and also can be caused by the digital egr valave sticking with carbon, it's a $6.50 fix from schucks or autozone or nappa auto parts store, if that does not do it then you need to buy the GM top engine cleaner and write me back for instructions for doing a top engine clean to get rid of the misfire.

Cylinder #1 continues to Misfire

What DTC code(s) are you getting?
You performed a compression test on cylinder #1; did you test cylinder #2?
Compare the readings, if there is a significant difference in compression readings between the two, you may have a bad head gasket, a bad valve, etc.
The bottom line, the problem is internal to the engine.

Do a compession check, might have a burt valve, the compression should be with-in 20% of the of the rest, compression in the cyl.has to be 80 psi or higher to fire that cyl.

Misfiring only running on 3 cylinders put new plugs and coil pack on

Is the same cylinder mis firing as before you relpaced coil pack ? If so a compression test is your next option . If there is any water leaks No 4 cyl is a likely suspect and worth checking . The old plugs will give you a clue to condition of cyl's. Injector swap and wiring exam may help also ,but only if you have to . Good luck

Use the correct champion plugs for starters, make sure the wire is firing. If the wire is firing, the coil pack is good. You will need to check compression and fuel delivery after that.
