I tend to agree with Scott, could be a bad valve though.

Re: still getting a misfire.. why?

sorry...I was replying on my cell and I thought I read in the thread somewhere you had a 08 4.7.

Re: still getting a misfire.. why?

Nope 2007.

Checked my coolant and it's fine, topped off- like it hasn't lost any at all. Still orange in color, nothing floating on the surface. Just seafoamed her and it smoked its all off. It's sitting now, about to take it for a spin and blow whatever's left out of there.

Re: still getting a misfire.. why?

So she stalled out twice- once at a light after romping on her and then again once I got back to my house and backed into my spot. The hesitation in OD at low rpms is gone. She smoked her ass off for quite awhile driving her around.
