You could, but I would also check, spark plug wire's and ignition coil pack, and if that checks good, do a cylinder compression test, if all good replace fuel injector then.

Why am I getting engine code 306 and and code 206 on 2004 Cadillac cts 3.6 eng

The fuel injectors are not working as the should. Run some premium fuel and fuel injector cleaner to try and make problem go away.
It problem persists the injector computer circuit voltages require checking. Possible injector controller or injector replacement could be solution.

1998 ranger 2.5 manual enging miss

ck for leak at intake. if no leak pcm/ecm may be sending fire command to slow to # 1 . the fuel injector is always hot the ecm sends a ground to the injector. even new parts can be bad ck inj, with ohm meter resistance should be the same between each inj. im not sure of the specifications but they should read the same my jimmy specs are 1.9-2.1 any other reading is bad . no resistance or lower or higher readings my injector would be bad. 140 is good reading, timing can be off a little and still run but rough like a miss. a code wont set most misfires will set a dtc or flash the engine light to let you know damage to cat system is happening , to much fuel a system rich,to little a lean. a bad mass airflow meter can also cause a misfiring or rough idle ck with scanner if dirty clean with brake cleaner first before replacing . hope this helps some let me know how it goes.

Miss fires at ideal smells like to much fuel out of exhaust. Runs better at higher rpm. 2000 Pontiac Grand am 2.4L

If it improves with rpm, I would suspect a stuck injector (not closing) causing your engine to run rich, or a bad temperature sending unit. You should check for fault codes (they will do this for free at Autozone). You will most likely have a code for a bad oxygen sensor. Don't replace it until you correct the rich fuel mixture with the bad one unplugged. The rich mixture is the cause of the bad O2 sensor, not the symptom.
I you unplug the O2 sensor the ecm will substitute a generic value, allowing you to correct the real issue without destroying another O2 sensor. They are not cheap.
You can verify a stuck injector cyl by cyl by inspecting the plugs. If they all look the same, you may want to unplug the cold start injector and see how it runs.

2002 1.9 sohc mp efi missing badly on #1 cylinder. new plug .wires,fuel filter.compression good.check engine light been on for several months showing egr fault. cleaned no help.installed another no...

Spray the intake manifold on cylinder number where it bolts to the head with intake cleaner and see if the rpm's change and the miss goes away temporarily.There was a problem at the factory with the intake gasket being creased on cylinder number 1. This issue tends to be a lean misfire issue.
