P0301?

Was the back strap blued? Did it have a thin black residue that was difficult to get off? Was there any red on the porcelain inside the combustion chamber?

It could be a bad plug wire or coil. You'd have to do a compression test to see about the valve, but the spark plug would've had fluffy, thick, wet black residue on it.
