First thing I would do would be to try switching the coil packs from the right cylinder bank to the left cylinder bank, and see if the misfire switches banks, or if it stays put.

Quick, easy, and doesn't cost you a dime.

Its not how fast you go, or how expensive your toys are.
Its all about how big your smile is at the end of the day that truly matters.

What ended up being the cause? I have the same thing, but cylinders 1,2 $3. I'm thinking cam shift sensor since it would affect all 3 cylinders on one side,but would live to know what your cause was.

I got a 306 from the fuel injector wire being loose. Once snapped in properly, no problem.

First check wires, Coils and plugs
Got a couple PO300, 0301, 030#, just pending then went away. Pulled Coils and several had cracking. Replaced all coils and plugs. Plugs didn't seem very tight as well. To soon to know if that was ultimate fix, haven't driven enough miles without CELs to know.
