Post Cylinder 2 Misfire..Runs Crappy

I have changed my spark plugs and wires a couple of months ago, because my truck was running crappy and threw a "cylinder 2 misfire" code". The truck ran great for a day or 2 then started running crappy again, and then just yesterday it threw another "cylinder 2 misfire" code again...any suggestions?

if you ran your engine dry of coolant

then you are looking at a complete engine rebuild

definately warped cylinder heads

the only way to avoid that problem in the future

is to pop the hood every couple of days and check the coolant resevoir level

i found the very same problem with my old 08 4 banger

topped it up and drove right to the dealership , made them repair it right there

how much did they charge you for repair? So there's pretty much no way to "fix" the problem, just keep on checking the coolant levels? But isn't the problem that the engine is sucking in the coolant?

it was still under warranty

so they had to fix it

or they would have had to replace the engine
