More than likely your injectors are burnt out. You need a digital multimeter to check it out. Unplug the connectors to the injector. Check the resistance it should be around 12 ohms. If the measurement is much higher it is burnt out out. Using a node light, If you don't have a node light you can use a LED with a 1k resistor connected to the anode. Connect that to the injectors wire terminals to see if the computer is providing pulse to it. Caution don't put DC current on injectors by using the battery, you will damaged them. Don't use a regular light bulb to see if the computer is providing pulse, it can damage the computer. The LED light must have a 1k resistor in series with it. This makes it safe to connect to injector terminal.

My 1993 Nissan sentra had water and rusty gas which made it start to miss until it ran on only one cylinder. So I. Too the pump out of the tank and cleaned the tank replaced the pump and the filter it...

Could be number 1 and 2 injectors are now blocked.

I suggest you go back to basics and ensure the ignition system and compressions are sound. Coincidence seems to happen quite a lot with car troubles.

If all else fails it will be time to check those injectors. It is sometimes possible to position them so the spray can be observed or numbers 1 and 2 could be fitted in the 3 and 4 positions to check the misfire follows or simply remove the injectors and take them to a specialist for testing.
If the injectors are found to be blocked it would be best if the fuel lines and the fuel rail, pressure regulator are also flushed and thoroughly cleaned as well as the pump, filter and tank.

OBD11 said #1 misfire #4 random, replaced sparkplugs, wires, coilpac for 1and 4. the van still has ABS lite and service engine lite on. and you can feel the miss.

a random miss is usually caused by dirty injectors or sticky valves, sometimes caused by carbon deposits on the pistons.

Buick rendezvous misfire issue

Since you changed parts, you have covered some possibilities. On the spark side, the Crankshaft sensor and( if equipped) the camshaft sensors give the information for the firing Pulse.

A wet connection on either part can certainly cause a misfire. There is also the possibility of a fuel injector misfiring due to a connection or bad ground on the injector during damp weather.

Sometimes if you get lucky you can see spark jumping on the motor by operating the engine in the dark. Mist the engine with a spray bottle of water to see if you can induce a misfire, if unsuccessful with normal weather conditions.

WD 40 often cures moisture problems.

Please rate my info.

Did you miss a connection in the harness ?
Unless the coils are disconnected the plugs should fire if the injectors have pulse.
