    Hey tonight I felt my engine start sputtering and acting funny. I had to drive it a little before a code came up. It says its cylinder 2 misfire. I plan on changing the plug and wire in the morning, but I just wanted to confirm which cylinder it is. It's the 3.4L. So the cylinder two whould be the cylinder on the driver side closest to the radiator correct?
