hey thanks for bringing me up to speed. ive been working on many other problems but with your great explanation i remember.
we need to check the compression on that cyl. and compare it to the compression on 2 other cylinders your choice.
but before you do this get a can of carb cleaner . and with the car idling spray around the intake manifold in the area of #6 cyl. what we are looking for is a small vacuum leak that would also act like this. with the engine idling and spraying around the intake the engines idle sould not change and if it does when you spray you have an intake leaking.
let me know how it turns out.

Hi, I would check for a vacume leak around your intake manifold #1 cylinder runner. You can check by using a stethescope with a small piece of brake line in the end of the hose or spraying propane around the intake. If you hit a vacume leak the RPM will drop. Vacume leakes normaly cause a higher RPM at idle.

I have expereienced this issue several times on the 2.2 ecotech usually ends up being the ignition module itself. I keep an extra module handy just for testing purposes.
Condition/Concern: Some customers may comment on a severe engine misfire and a SES Light. Upon inspection, DTCs P0300 - P0304 may be found due to misfires on cylinders 1 and 4 or cylinders 2 and 3.
Recommendation/Instructions: If this concern is encountered, inspect circuits 406 (IC Control for 2/3 Coil) and 423 (IC Control for 1/4 Coil) for an intermittent short to ground or poor connection on either end. Depending on the model, these circuits may short on the AC lines near the AC compressor, on the transmission mount, or on the transmission lines where they enter the transmission. If there is no problem found with these circuits, inspect the ignition control module ground to ensure that it is clean and tight.
If there is no problem found after performing the suggestions above and the SI diagnostics lead to ignition module replacement, replace the ignition module as directed but also replace all of the spark plugs and clean the ignition module ground to possibly prevent future ignition module damage.
Measure the resistance of the ground circuit of the ICM from the harness connector of the ICM to a good ground. This should be 3 ohms.If it is not replace the module.
