Ok I have a 2005 Toyota Rav4 with a 2.4
The problem is I have a cylinder 3 misfire, plugs good,coil good, compression fine...the odd thing it only misses in park, no misfire in drive...any clue to help me figure this out???

I just had the same problem - checked wires / coils / compression all fine. Turned out to be the injector on that cylinder.
do you have a check engine light on?
Did you replace wires?
Mis fires due to bad wires usually show themselves at low revs or idle.
Thanks everyone, found it was a bad valve spring.....just had me thrown on the fact in drive it was not misisng!
Check engine light is on - missfire on cyl 1. Spark looks great. Compression is fine. I am suspecting an injector. When I pull the plug wire on #1 it doesn't change #2 changes slightly #3 or 4 the engine darn near dies.
How do I get the injector out and can I clean it?
