Obviously its an electrical issue with #3, burned coil as mentioned, or even the wire or plug connection on the coil. nothing major.

Got it fixed thanks guys! Turns out it was water leaking into the spark plugs for the heating core hose , because I had just gotten it fixed and the hoses were loose ,
