Check Engine light came on...checked the code, seems like Cylinder 1 is misfiring. Was told the first thing to do is to check to see if spark plug is damaged but not sure which spark plug is for Cylinder #1. Would really appreciate some help. Next thing i was told to do was to change the Ignition module....thoughts?

For I4, #1 cylinder is the one closest to crank shaft pulley, aka the belts.

For V6, #1 cylinder is the one near firewall and (as I4).
