Default 1995 Impreza 2.2 cylinder 2 misfire

I just acquired this car in a trade and took it to Shucks today for Check engine light..

Comes up: Cylinder 2 Misfire and knock sensor failure

Where do I start? I want to put as little money into this car as possible and sell it. But I would like to do what I can to take care of the problem. The only work I know of that was done to car is the previous owner said he replaced spark plugs so I'm going to check wires and make sure plug is installed correctly..

Thanks in advance for any help/advice.

Is it continuing to misfire, or did it just happen once and the CEL is still on? My '95 EJ22 had a cylinder two misfire every two years or so. Just cleared the CEL and everything was gravy.

...go to autozone and ask to borrow an OBD2 code reader. the shop one will usually be the really good one that will tell you what the code is. just plug it in, read it, then clear it... and deffinitely replace the knock sensor... its cheap and easy

I have a '95 ej18, it has ODBI which uses the black/green connectors under the steering wheel for code reading/reset. OBDII didn't come in till '96.

Look up Subaru OBDI reset, from memory you connect all plugs, black to black, green to green, go for a drive for a few minutes obove 10kmh. Unplug the black/green connectors and all's done.

It's a obdII and I'm getting the new knock sensor and getting a o2 from scrap yard cause they're guaranteed to work and I'm just selling car.. I'm also going to check all plugs and wires then reset code as see where I stand thanks for the input guys..
