there is a lot of truth to that rumpr, but i would start with checking the plugs and coils...try swappingcols from other cylinders and see if the miss fire changes...think simple first

If lifters and cam is involved sound expensive, any estimate
Expert:  xsvector replied 27 days ago.

3000 dollars or so...all the lifters get changed along with the camsshaft
