Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you with your question.
A misfire would cause a hard vibration.
Yes you can pull a wire one at a time and listen for the change in rpm to find out which cylinder is misfiring.
Rpm will drop, you will see a noticeable difference in how the engine is running if you have a working cylinder, if no change then you have a dead cylinder.
