nothing. If anyone could help me out in figuring this out it

SO IT DOESNT FIRE OUT OF THE ENGINE GROUNDED RIGHT??

IS IT GIVING OUT 1 OR MORE CODES?

It gave P0307 at 1st but after clearing it the light hasn't come on since but still running horrible and fuel on plugs when I remove them...you may be right about the grounding but I wanna say I've seen them run outside of engines before but maybe I was dreaming or something

I would try and pull another and see if it runs outside the engine but I don't wanna crank it with 2 misfiring so I figured it best not to do that

Does the #7 plug come out wet as well? What did the original #7 plug look like? Crusty, black and oily, or chalky white? There is the possibility that the original #7 missfire caused unburned fuel to wash the cylinder wall down enough that it will take several minutes to get the rings to reseal, if at all. Check the #7 compression and do a leakdown test if possible.

The original #7 plug and the new plug both come out black and oily so I'm going to give that a shot and hopefully it'll fix it...thank you very much for your time and knowledge. It is so greatly appreciated!!!

If you've got a good plug a good coil pack and it still missing on number 7 you need to do a compression test cuz it sounds like you got an internal issue on that cylinder

Thank you mufflerman900!!! I broke down and bought a new vehicle but still wanna fix my truck when I get a little more money saved back up
