Default Re: Cylinder 3 misfire & Fuel in Oil

Follow the plug wires from the plugs to where they mount on the block. There are two coil packs - swap the coil packs and see if the misfire moves.

Swap the fuel injectors next and see if it moves.

I'd skip the seafoam for now. I suspect the thinking was "sticking fuel injector flooding the cylinder and washing down into the gas" - but the same thing can happen with a fouled plug / no spark. Fouled plugs are generally a symptom, rather than a cause, but replacing plugs can lead to temporary improvements.

Welcome to saturnfans! Have you checked out the sticky thread?

edit: was any other work done on the car recently?
