What is No5 like?

It the plug on No2 wet or dry, carboned up?

Unplug the injector on No2 and see if it is any worse.

Could also be coil pack going out, run car at night lift hood and look for arching.

If it was the coilpack, more than likely you would have iisues with 2 & 5. They fire 1&6, 2&5, 3&4.

are you sure its only cylinder 2 missing?
how did you check that?

first thought would be coil pack but as SWC said its more than likely you would have issues on both 2 and 5.

the other thing if your confident the plugs and leads are fine is actually swap injector 1 and 2 over and see if the issue is still on cylinder 2. just because the injector is clicking doesnt mean its good. the pintal cap could be f**k meaning its not spraying properly...

Thanks for the replys people,it is only number 2 missing,what i have found is #2 injector seems loose where it goes into head,it seems to move very easily,dont know if this is normal or not.
