    A random misfire code and no power sounds like a dead cylinder.

    What kinda of spark plugs were used?

    I would remove the coil and shine a light down into the spark plug socket and check for oil. If so then you will need a new valve cover gasket.

    Inspect the coil boots for arcing.

    If none of this helps then try disconnecting injector wiring on #1 reconnect then #2 reconnect until you find the cylinder that makes little or no difference in how the engine is running. then you have found the dead cylinder

    Usually you have to squeeze the clip then pull the injector connector to disconnect.

    It was the crank position sensor.
