Hello and welcome!

My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question.

Expert:  Amedee replied 9 months ago.

The most common cause of a misfire condition on your vehicle would be faulty tune up parts. This is very common and easily fixed by doing a simple tune up.

Some other possible causes (not so common) would be sticking or burned valves

Broken valve springs

faulty fuel injectors

bad camshaft or crankshaft position sensor.

It may simply be a coincidence that it happened right after you slammed on the brakes. Or something could have logded itself or moved/shifted either inside the engine or outside of the engine (like the tune up parts) just right so that a plug or something has moved causing the engine to misfire.
