Default misfire on #3

I recently had one of my coil packs replaced for #4. Before I curse someone out in the morning, are the coil packs paired 1-4 and 2-3? I was quite surprised when the code pulled #3. The light has since gone off by itself.

While i'm at it, should I go ahead and change the wires and plugs? wires were changed when i first got the car, plugs changed maybe 8 months ago.

Yes, the coils are 1-4 and 2-3, left to right as you look at them, that is 1-4 and 2-3 cars right to left. The firing order however is 4,1,2,3 from the cars right tower to left. The plugs are 1,2,3,4 from the cars right to left. Verify the numbers match. Plugs and wires are the first thing to try. NGK BKR5ESA-11 for DOHC and NGK BKR4ESA-11 for SOHC. Any good quality mid priced direct fit wires will be fine. Scotch brite the coil pack towers and add a very thin coat of silicone grease to the aluminum. Keep it off of the boots.

when i asked my guy, he was like "you can't do that", which meant he'd rather make the money replacing the coil pack. hopefully richpin has my back here. it's time for wires and plugs so that wont necessarily be a waste.

I am, however, concerned about my oil (and fuel) consumption. It has increased lately.
