    Can I assume if you changed the ECM, the coilpack, and injector that the sparkplug(s) have not been overlooked? If so, check for a vacuum leak in the #6 intake runner area. And do a compression test, or better yet, a leakdown test. Valve clearance would be another thing to check if nothing else turns up.

    That's weird how two dealers couldn't figured it out, but how many miles on the engine?
    If your having Random/multiple misfires The engine may need a valve adjustment.

    You mean your shop/dealer is.. Right? Unless if you are mechanically inclined enough to know what you are doing.

    This sounds like it could be a bad head gasket.I Recently had 05 4runner with 100k also cyl#6 missfire.Replaced plugs fuel injector finaly the customer told me that the miss only happend after the vehichle sat for a while.After that I pressure tested the cooling system found a very slow pressure drop.Next i used a borescope to find a very small amount of coolant leaking from the head gasket into the #6 cly.This would be a good test to perform before having your valves checked.The leak will get worse
    over time.One odd thing is the 4runner never smoked and the coolant resivor was not very low.Hope this helps.
