Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try to assist you today with this issue. Sounds to me like it needs a tune up I would check the spark plugs. If the spark plugs are good then what you need to do is to swap the cylinder that is missing with a known good coil. Like swap one with two or three with four or another one that is easy to get at. And see what follows. You have a bad coil if, the miss follows the respected coil that you swapped it from. Please get back to me and I will assist you further. .

Hi John,I'm going to change the plugs in the next week or two than we will see if that solves it.The thing that I'm concerned about is the P0345 code that's there.

P0340 - Camshaft Position Sensor A Circuit (Bank 1 or single sensor)
Description: The test fails when the powertrain control module (PCM) can no longer detect the signal from the camshaft position (CMP) sensor on bank 1.
Possible Causes:
CMP circuit open
CMP circuit short to GND
CMP circuit short to voltage
SIG RTN open (VR sensor)
CMP GND open (Hall-effect sensor)
CMP circuit short to CMP2 circuit (if equipped)
CMP incorrectly installed (Hall-effect sensor)
Damaged CMP sensor shielding

Damaged PCM
Diagnostic Aids: Harness routing, harness alterations, improper shielding, or electrical interference from other improperly functioning systems may have an intermittent impact on the CMP signal.
