Default 07 2.3 misfire

Tried the search button. So just help me here. Lol. My buddies 07 just randomly started misfiring. I havent had a chance to hear it yet. He said he was just sitting at a light and it started missing. Only ~46k on it. Just trying to come up with a list of things for him to check when he gets out of work.

Ahh lol the good ole misfire > yep that would be my 07. ended up going out after work and started it up....ran fine? Hasn't done it since that day. It was so weird, i was on my way to work, and was coming up to a stop light and started to slow down and also down shift. Boom it then starts acting up like a misfire. The cel was not on. Have not looked into the problem at all. Anyone ever have this happen to them?
