Hello welcome to just answer I am master tech and will be able to assist you .how many miles on the car and what it the maintenance history on this car ?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
111,000 miles and I get regular oilchanges every 3-5 k. Tune up done at 76,000 miles. I had one misfire issue around then, had the tune up, used seafoam in my gas tank as it was suggested that I got bad gas. That resolved the issue. The code I get now says ECM/PCM relational malfunction.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 10 months ago.
ok the valves require adjustment every 110-120k if you have a tight or loose valve it can cause a misfire code
