Hello, if it is misfiring all the time at an idle and has no power, it most likely has a failed Powertrain control module. The PCM fails and the ignition coil ground control driver circuits fry the ignition coils by staying on all the time. The fix is to have the PCM replaced and reprogrammed, replace all 6 ignition coils and spark plugs. 2 ignition PATS security keys need to be programmed to the new PCM.
