Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you
Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't know
your skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand that
I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace a
repair shop.
My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return for
my time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know you
didn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.

Okay, I need to get the codes that have been set in the computer first. This will give us more direction. A code reader is okay to use though a scan tool would be better so we can also get data.

Misfires will be caused by ignition/plugs/wires/coils. Fuel injectors bad or not firing, test with noid light. low compression, test with compression gauge.

thanks, Ron
