Clean throttlebody and MAF, put in a can of SeaFoam in the fuel tank. You may have injectors starting to plug up, if the SeaFoam doesn't work you may have to replace the injector on number 2.

If you have coils on each of the spark plugs swap the coil on #2 with another cylinder. See if the misfire follows the coil. If so that coil is bad. If not, compression test cylinder #2. If it tests low or zero you've got a valve or ring problem on that cylinder. A major repair. If you've got good compression on #2 check the fuel injector. HTH. -Jim
