#4 seems to have a lot of goo on that port. I would look that one over. If that valve is not opening right ya, it will cause a misfire.

You would need to remove the timing chain cover to inspect the timing chain. I've no heard of a cam walking. Lets see what you find under the valve covers. Look for any loose rockers.

If it'* coming from the center then you need to check the balance shaft and cam. You will need to pull the LIM to do that.
