You can have codes checked for free at your local parts store. If its just a misfire code this usually means you have a bad coil. For example, if it says cylinder 3 is misfiring swap that coil with another cylinder to see if misfire moves if so replace coil. If a different code comes up you can reply to this answer at any time without additional fee's so just reply as you are now. The coil costs about $100 and takes about 20 minutes to replace but make sure you verify misfire moves with coil before just replacing parts. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help, thanks.
