A Power Balance test with a good scan tool will tell you instantly which cylinder is missing. You didn't mention a flashing "Check Engine" light (which would indicate a misfire as well). Are you just hearing it or is the engine performing poorly? If it's just a noise and there's no actual misfire or loss of performance, I'd turn the radio up.
