    2001 Camaro plug, wire, or coil pack?

    So a few days ago my SES light came on, took it to autozone and it came up as a misfire on cylinder 2. The light went off later in the day and hasn't come back on since but seems to be bogging down under load and has a rough idle. My question is, is it possible for this to be a coil pack since its only on cylinder 2? I know the coil pack runs cylinder's 2 and 5 so im thinking that might now be it. I did plugs and wires about 30k miles ago along with the 2/5 coil pack.

    take that coil and sway with another to see if the problem follows the coil.

    Did you change plugs when you did the wires?

    And like said above, just move the coil and see if the problem follows.

    Thanks for the responses, I thought about switching the coil packs to see if the problem followed but as of right now the SES light is off so I dont see how I could check it that way. Im thinkin ill probably just change the coil pack first, wire, then plug.

    Would low oil pressure at idle be from this as well I'm assuming? Rough and a little shakey.

    With a waste spark system you usualy get both sides of the coil misfiring when it is the coil that is gone or going south. I would look into the plug, wire, or injector if it is only one cyl. Also sometimes you have to really romp on it to throw the CEL, the computer is programed to ignore the occasional miss fire and if it does not miss X# of times per Y# of revolutions there is no code thrown.
