Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer
So my second cylinder misfires.its a Mitsubishi lancer es 2002. the thing is i took it to a mechanic and he took a look and said the spark plugs were cheap and i needed the expensive ones. so he replaced those and checked my fuel injectors, compression, distributors and their caps as well as the coil packs and said they were all good. by the way replacing the spark plugs only fixed the problem temporarily. there is something causing the plug to misfire, and its only and always the second cylinder.
One often overlooked item is the spark plug leads themselves! They don't last forever - Some start breaking down internally after only a couple of years, and although you still get a spark at the plug, it is not a very healthy spark.
If they haven't been changed, it is well worth giving it a go.
Hope this helps!

It sounds like a bad coil pack, switch it around and see if the misfire goes to a next cylinder.
