If you have a (solid) miss, there should be a code set that will tell you what cylinder it is.
How the system detects it is by actually measuring the crank rotation time and compairing it with the rest of the cylinders within rpm limits set in the program.
Makes little difference what causes the miss, it's time related for crank rotation.
Use a Scanner to see if one is set and possibly avoid all the extra work trying things and possibly getting confused with faulty old parts.
