P0357 indicates there is an electrical fault with the #7 COP. Might be as simple as a bent connector pin or a connector that isn't fully seated.

If you switch COP's and still get the same code on cyl #7 then something in the wiring harness or perhaps the connector into the COP is at fault.

I had my own misfire on #7 and eventually discovered the locking tabs on the harness connector had failed. Replaced it with a NAPA part #EC259 and that problem was cured.

what bout the knocking sound is this a whole nother problem? no metal in the oil an the oil is due for oil change in 40 miles...it doesent knock at idle its more of a tapping i guess.... when im reving it at idle you can hear s,oething towards the bottom of the motor like almost like the crank turing or something? but..no metal in the oil an very good oil psi ,truck has 191k miles on it thos but motor looks almost new!

Sounds like you have a connecting rod knocking which is unrelated to the misfire.
