Its been awhile since i posted . Back in 2017 I had a head gasket issue and was able to repair it with some Head Gasket Repair. Now it is not showing any signs like before where it would overheat and shut down , but I am not getting any heat unless driving and also I seem to be getting a lot of air in the cooling system and I am having to bleed it off all the time . I am sometimes getting a misfire code for #1 cylinder saying it could be the spark plug / plug wire / egr valve (replaced) / coil pack (replaced0 . Have looked the plug over and the wire looks okay as well. My code reader also says it the intake could be leaking. I have done the test where you spray the intake area with carb and choke cleaner but the engine speed did not change. Is there anything else i can do?
Thanks.

does the #1 plug look very clean like it is being steam blasted? If so the cylinder may be the source of the head gasket leak.

I pulled the plug and another one to compare it to. Both plugs looked good like they were firing properly , but the plug wires were sucked to the plugs which caused a deal to pull them off. I am going to go ahead and do a full tune up , plugs and wires. I had just done the current one in Oct 2017. The only other issue this could be is the fuel injector which I forgot to mention in the first post. I have used the fuel injector cleaner several times for that issue.
