Are you sure you counted the cylinders correctly? Maybe you replaced the wrong ones. If not then it could be the fuel pump.

yes...wait... i think so pasenger side from front of vehicle to rear 1-4 driver side from front of vehicle to rear 5-8 that should be correct. some of these messages say its not the fuel pump i think ill check pressure at the rail next just to make sure. have you ever heard of the PCV tubing i mean could that actually cause misfiring to happen.

I think that's right. Here is what I found:
Back (Fire Wall)
I've heard some references to the PCV valve with misfire symptoms - certainly won't hurt.

I have a random misfire. I got the code of PO 357 Ign Coil G Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction. Which coil is "G". Is that number 7 , second from the firewall drivers side ?
Thanks for your reply, Rick

Just signed up so I may be late on your help. I know the problem well. Some times if you slide the connector off of the ignition coil that is in question you'll find the rubber seal pushed back. This will create a loose connection and condensation can get trapped and last but not least it will throw out a code and bad idle. From experience, don't replace a coil until you check the connection.

try to get to it this weekend, how do i go about fixing it if this is the problem

Be careful cause they can be very fragile after a few yrs. Check the connector that hooks to the coil. You should be able to push the plastic down with your thumb nail and slide it off. When you get this off there should be a colored (gasket)
o-ring inthe connector itself. Make sure it hasn't slid back. Use electric cleaner and spray into it but lightly. Let them all dry and hook them back up.
Make sure you diconnect your battery before you start. so that it will rescan the code.
