Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hello, my name is Bobby. Thank you for the question. Can you tell me if you can feel the misfire everytime you drive it?
Thanks Derrick. Before getting into replacing anything else you really should do a compression test. Though it has low miles this engine does have a history of valve seat issues. If the compression is fine then it may simply be a clogged fuel injector.
Please do let me know. Most of the time the oil enters externally from a valve cover gasket issue. If it is from the inside then it may be a piston ring or more commonly on this engine a bad valve guide seal.
I am glad it was that easy. As for the coils themselves they typically only last about 80,000-100,000 miles. Let me get you the resistance specs of them as it is not commonly used.
It would take a really bad misfire to cause this for a long time. Doing an oil change though is cheap and easy to take care of just to be safe.
