Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases, I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

The rough running misfire feel was most likely due to an issue with fuel injectors atomizing incorrectly or a coil acting up.These are the most common causes of this fault here and will turn on the drivetrain malfunction light.

The chassis warning is a fault detected with one of the brake or traction/stability control components.The light or message came on to alert to you a fault is detected with one of these systems components.Since the light has come on and gone off and come back on for both of these issues this indicates the faults are intermittent and are not occurring or being detected by the computers in your vehicle at all times.

What has to be done from here though is to have the fault codes read out/checked with a fully compatible scan tool/computer plugged into your model that can read all computers in your vehicle.Once this is done the codes can then be diagnosed to then locate and repair this issue here.This has to be done to help locate and repair this fault since there are several components involved with these systems that can cause this fault here.

Most shops or a dealer can read out the codes as well as diagnose and repair them for a fee.A local parts store can usually read out fault codes at no charge to you but usually cannot diagnose or repair the fault but can give you an idea of the faults.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
