Lexus Mechanic: Todd M, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago

Thank you for that. The issue that you are having could also be cause by fault injectors. Although, before replacing anything else, you need to confirm and see whether the vehicle is getting spark and fuel to those cylinders. To test for spark, it is best to use an in-line spark tester. These are inexpensive and can be purchased from your local auto part store.

To test to see if the injectors are firing, you can use a noid light. These, too, can be purchased from the auto part store.

if i am getting a spark then what
Lexus Mechanic: Todd M, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago

Here I am attaching spark testing information. If you are getting spark, then this means that you will need to check to see if the cylinders are receiving fuel. Faulty injector will cause a misfire just as the plugs and coils will.

Here, I am attaching testing information for the injectors to ensure that they are functioning.

Lexus Mechanic: Todd M, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago

If you have spark and fuel, then you will need to have a leak down test done on the cylinders. This will test for faults in the motor itself that will cause this. If all of these things check out, then you will more than likely end up replacing the control module. That would be the most probable cause.

Also, if you haven't done so already, the vehicle needs to be scanned for codes. The codes received will indicate the area of concern if it is a circuit issue.
