Customer Question
My 2008 enclave is...

My 2008 enclave is running really rough. My scan tool shows cylinders 1, 3 and 5 are misfiring. I replaced the plugs and coils but it didn't fix the issue.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it a steady misfire? Or random?

About 135000 miles

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Enclave yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, I replaced the plugs and coils.
