If you have a misfiring cylinder then unfortunately if you drive it that far you are going to damage the catalytic converter due to the un-burned fuel from that cylinder entering the converter which will cause it to glow red hot and that can also become a safety concern as well. You do not want to drive it very far at all with a misfiring cylinder.

Sorry I do not have better news for you but if you plan on taking this car on the trip you really need to correct the engine misfire.

Is a spark plug misfire the same as a cylinder misfire and would a tune up fix the problem
Chrysler Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

Yes both are the same thing, the spark plugs fire each cylinder. If you only have a bad spark plug then yes a tune up will usually correct this type of a misfire.

Do u know how much a tune up would cost
Chrysler Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

The labor to remove and replace the spark plug calls for 1.6 hours plus the cost of the spark plugs. That is about all you need to do for a tune up on this engine.

How long is 1.6 hours u don't know a price range
Chrysler Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

The labor hours are base on the shop labor rate in your area and you can expect that to be at least 85.00 per flat rate hours so based on that your looking at about $136 plus the spark plug and those run about $5 each . The complete tune up should be less then $200

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
