Thanks for posting

The first thing that should be done is to get some diagnostic code information since the check engine light is n, while it is on some other warning lights may also turn on but they are irrelevant right now, it's obvious an engine misfire, to diagnose the problem accurately the diagnostic codes need to be retrieved from the computer by connecting s suitable code reader. when you have some of this information in the form or code numbers I'll be here to continue, thanks.
