Question about Chevrolet Avalanche
Hi, #4 cylinder is second back on the passenger side of the engine. With a 304, you want to pull the plug out and see if it's dirty or broken. Put it back into the wire and see if you can hold it to the engine while someone cranks the engine. Use an oven mitt to avoid being shocked. If the engine starts, it will be loud, so have them shut it off as soon as you have verified if there are sparks jumping. If there are no sparks from the plug, take it out of the wire and try again with just the coil/wire. If there are no sparks from the coil/wire, replace them. If there are, replace the spark plug. If there were sparks at the plug, the problem likely to be either a bad/clogged injector or a burned valve. I doubt the burned valve, but clogged injector is always possible. If you hold a long screwdriver up to the injector and hold the other end to your ear, you can listen for the injector to click. If it isn't clicking, you may need a new injector. If it is, you can try some injector cleaner to see if it clears up. If not, I would run a compression test just to verify the valve is good, then I would pull the injector and check it's spray pattern. Please take a look at this post for a few more details and let me know if you have any questions: http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6715318-causes_gasoline_engine_misfires
