Question about 1998 Chevrolet Camaro
The convertor has been taking off would that cause it to misfire only when you put it in gear
Are you getting a check engine light? What is/are the code(s): check for current and pending codes?
Check the basics first. Does the condition occur only when you have your foot on the brake pedal? You may have a vacuum leak inside the brake booster.
Does the condition persist when you are driving? At all engine speeds?
Does the condition only or primarily occur when the engine is cold? How old are your spark plug wires and plugs? Check for cross firing spark plug wires or look for cracks in the insulation.
Have you cleaned your Mass Air Flow sensor?
Do you have carbon built up on your idle air controller?
Is your EGR valve dirty or sticking?
Does your fuel pressure change just by putting the transmission into drive?
You may have to remove your spark plugs to analyze whether or not one or more are fouling or running too lean. This will help you see if you have a sticky fuel injector or bad valve guide seals. You will also be able to see if you are burning any coolant which might indicate bad head gaskets or intake manifold leaks.
Without knowing if there are any codes or not only makes troubleshooting a little more frustrating. Not having codes can indicate certain component failures by itself. Having trouble codes can simplify the process greatly.

could be one of several things
1) run a compression check, if it low on that cyl then you have a blown head gasket or burnt valve
2) could be the enjector

The injector is a good possibility, although you should check for spark in the wire first, as the electrical is the weakest link in the system. Put a spare plug in the end of the wire with the plug resting on metal, then have someone crank the van to see if you have spark that far, test and replace spark plug, (do not get shocked!) then look into a new injector or a good cleaning.
