Car jerks, like a mixture, but no codes with basic tester

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact code? And have you tried to reset it?

Miss fire, no code using Advance Auto basic code reader

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Oldsmobile?

2002 olds intrigue

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Intrigue yourself? What have you tried so far?

Advance Auto tried scanning for code, no codes found, referred me to a repair shop for more thorough analysis 2 days ago. Told me I had a cracked spark plug 6, replaced, seemed ok at first but problem returned quickly

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

In neutral In park, if I get rpms between 3000 to 4000, can feel miss fire
