Sounds like a faultyset of coils. Cylinders 1,3,5 will be all on the same bank. your engine is a v6, so cylinders 2,4,6 will be on one side, 1,3,5 the other. Check wire harness running to each set of coil packs. Especially the ones on the back bank close to firewall. Possibly the harness was rubbing on something or sitting on something hot, could have damaged the wires.

What is a misfire in cylinder #1

Loss of compression means either piston or valve issues. You wouldn't know without a compression test with a gauge.
Misfire could be spark plug, coil or electrical issues.

Misfire on cylinder 1 ford taurus 2000

You will have to change the cylinder piston; the ring around the piston is what causing this to misfire. As you can see, every time you remove that one spark plug, to look as liquid is been spill on it. The ring around the piston is damage and the cylinder is not burning the oil and gas as the spark plug send fire into the cylinder. contact your local mechanic for hands on help.

I have changed a few cylinder heads under warranty for this type of problem. The exhaust valve guides wear, this causes the exhaust valve to seat badly, giving low compression. if one cylinder compresion reading is more than about 50 psi below the others, then this warrants head removal. It is quite a job, due to the fact that the camshft id chain driven. If you are up for it then once the head is removed, poor liquid into the exhaust ports and see if it leaks out through any of the exhaust valves.

the car might still be under warranty. if you bought it as a certified used car they add on 25,000 miles to the existing 50,000 miles. If cylinder 1 is coming up misfire and your mechanic sees something wrong in that cylinder there most likely is some truth because if the cylinder was not firing right (detonating and discharging raw fuel) this would blow out the catalytic converter. The best way to see if it is a bent or broken valve is to buy a leak down tester which is part of a compression test. basically depending on specs you crank engine over grounding coils and see if all cylinders put out the same compression within 10psi of each other. it is usually around 160 -200 psi per cylinder. now to do a leak down test just leave pressure in and see rate of decreasing pressure and compare to other cylinders. if everything checks out i dont believe to be anything wrong with cylinder. Oh i forgot to ask any check engine lights on besides a cylinder 1 misfire P0301?

Very weird, a bad cat should not make it mis-fire, if it is just one cylinder it is mis-firing on, its worth checking the coil pack for that cylinder
