I found the misfire problem. Injector for cylinder #1
was DOA. First time in 20+ years of playing with cars I've had one fail. Have a new set of injectors on their way.
I may have figured out the dash problem too. My scanner has been acting strangley- not connecting to car or phone or both. I got some canbus errors from another reader and interneted those. It looks like other people have had strange issues with a dodgy scanner hooked up. Next drive I'll run with no scanner and see if all is well.
I tried running a live scan while driving 1 time in my 03 and it didn't take well to it. It bucked, lights went all crazy. It didn't mind it while parked and idling but once on the road, it was a whole different story.
I had an injector issue last year that had me so bummed out I about wanted to give up on my build and move to a different platform lol. Needless to say I stuck it out. I had a misfire, replaced coils and plugs and the misfire stayed. Took the plugs back out and the #3
plug was still dry and looking brand new. No gas smell at all on it. A set of refurbished injectors later and almost 5000 miles, no issues at all.
Nice job on finding a bad injector. It wasn't that bad of a job to do. It took me longer than it should have because I was scrubbing 15 years of grime from my parts before putting them back. I will say to leave the main fuel line connected to the rail when it comes time and just flop the whole thing over to the drivers side. It saves a little bit of time and frustration not having to disconnect the line from the rail.
