Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are several possible causes for a misfire and it will require some testing to determine what is going on. The problem could be ignition, injector related, fuel quality, possibly a sensor, or a cylinder sealing/valvetrain issue.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a code reader or scan tool to see what fault codes have set. Have you read the codes?
