Need all (Fuel, Spark, Air, Timing) to get combustion. Lack of combustion is what is referred to as a misfire. One or more of those things is missing from #3 cylinder.
Fuel - Fuel injector working?
Spark - Good Spark? Good Boot/Wire? Good coil?
Air - Got decent compression in that cylinder?
Timing - Shouldn't be an issue with just 1 cylinder, unless you have a distributor that is arcing past the #3 post.

Good luck.

SOURCE: My car is misfiring around the 3rd cylinder, where

The third cylinder is the third spark plug wire from the passenger side of the car. An easy way to tell if this is the cylinder that is misfiring is to pull up the spark plug wire using insulated pliers with the car running. If there is no change in idle speed then that's the dead cylinder. If when you pull out the spark plug wire you see sparks shooting all over from it (a very common problem) then you need a tune-up.

I agree with thunderboltz replace the coils or at least swap them to see if problem moves if not monitor wiring and replace injectors if wiring and coils check out.

Check whether you have a coil not working. or a faulty spark plug or the injector does not spray sufficient fuel in the combustion chamber.

What can i do to fix my '96 Saturn SL1 3rd cylinder misfire


I would start the cheap way of swapping the position of the two identical coils, if the misfire moves to another cylinder then you have a bad coil. If the misfire stays on the same cylinder I would put in new plugs and wires. If the 3rd cylinder plug is covered in poo, then you may have some corruption of that cylinder and ignition is not your issue.
