Thank you for allowing me to help you with this concern today and am sorry to hear that this is happening. I will have to ask you a few questions so that I can get a better understanding as to what may be going on with your Excursion.

After replacing (topping off) the oil level, did the misfire still occur?

Does the check engine light flash at all (even when driving)?
