You should hear a rhythmic mechanical click from each one. If it is missing, and you do get the clicking sound on the #6 injector, the injector is firing but could be plugged. If you don't get the clicking sound, disconnect the electrical connection from the injector and probe the two terminals on the wire side of the connector with a volt meter, start the car and see if you get 12 volts. If you get 12 volts but the injector is not clicking, replace the injector.

If it is not missing at idle, the best way to check is by switching injectors around to see if the misfire follows the suspect injector.
Yes it is missing at idle majority of the time, but its intermittent. It is usually after the car has sat for sometime. I need to listen to them as its missing and then probe the terminals. I will get back with the info, most likely thursday/friday. THANKS A BUNCH
