Move your coil from position 2 to 1, than reset ECU. Drive for a while, don't be surprised if the code doesnt come back right away - I'll explain that later. If code follows, than coil is bad, if code returns on Cyl2, than either bad spark plug or worse...

I had a misfire code for cyl1, moved the coil from 1 to 2, code went away for about 4 MONTHS till one day I got on it hard I guess or whatever reason, and the code came back, same cyl1. Replaced all coil packs (went with HD ones from iPd) and replaced all spark plugs. Turns out, spark plug 1 had a crack in the porcelen stem, very faint/small/thin one, I didn't notice it when I originally swapped coils (as I pulled all original spark plugs to check for corrosion, gaps, etc, and put them back in the same cylinders).
