Does the yellow check engine light come on when this happens?

no not that i know of
Expert:  Cat Man replied 25 days ago.
Thanks for the information.
I would first want to check the fuel pressure. It should remain between 70-90 psi at all times. If it is low it can cause a skip.
Low fuel pressure is caused by a plugged fuel filter, weak fuel pump, or faulty regulator.
If the fuel pressure is OK. You have either a faulty injector or cylinder problem. Many times when a cam follower fails. It damages the cylinder. Possibly valve not sealing.
