Customer Question

I have an ' 08 Honda Odyssey. Just had a tune up and catalytic converter replaced; got the van back then a day later , the VSA light came on steady, with check engine light flashing then steady. Driving through light rain at about 4o mph. I did not notice any vibrations initially until when I was about to park. It was about a***** I took it to AUTOZone so they could do a diagnostic, and the codes said cylinder 1 misfire detected. It was running fine prior to the tune up and change of the catalytic converter, then all of these problems. What could possibly be the cause?

did they replace the coils?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't think they did. The mechanic said they changed the spark plugs, oil and oil filter and air filter. The mechanic did say that he felt some vibrations when he did a test drive. Will it be safe to drive it to my work ( about 18 miles) before I take it back to the mechanic?

is the light flashing or solid?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Both VSA and check engine lights are solid.

then its safe to drive...but extended driving can cause further issues...since ir has a missfire and it was just tuned up i would have the shop that did the tune up look at it
