What is the firing order on a 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe sport 2.0T? I have a cylinder 3 misfire code, 26k miles, is it usually the spark plug or the coil pack?

Cylinder number 3 is the third one back starting at the passengers side. If you are having trouble figuring out which cylinder is number 3 then please don't work on your car. Have a mechanic look it over.

Sorry, still puzzled. I changed the #3 spark plug and switched the cyl.2 & 3 coil packs, and cleared the code. The plug had a brown stain on the upper white insulator above the hex on the upper wire end of the plug. After three days a code came back on, but went off before I could check it. I read some 2014’s shipped with bad plugs.

Thanks for the reply. I am going to try Prestone complete fuel system cleaner. I read on another forum that low grade gasoline could be the problem for the misfire. Someone said they changed plugs and coils and the problem still came back. He adds the fuel cleaner every oil change and the code did not come back so I will try that before I start changing plugs and coils. I will keep you posted if my light does not come back fingers crossed.

I went to the dealer and they updated the ECU software. I have driven over 500 miles and the light has not come back.

After a month, still no code, so it must have been a bad plug at 26k mi. Lame for top of the line iridium plugs, I wrote Bosch no reply.
