1996 C280 Hesitation/chugging

I have a 1996 C280 that would develop a hesitation after decelaration. If the vehicle was turned off and started again the hesitation would cease until decelaration. Now the hesitation/chugging is constant. The MIL code says that I have a mis-fire in cylinder #2. I have replaced the spark plugs and am looking for some help.

A hesitation / missing in M104 engines is almost always the resistor boot that connects the coil wire to the spark plug.

Change the three resistor boots.
