Does it give any specific cylinder number?

You can ignore the phone call request, the site automatically tries to offer that. We can continue through text

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
all cylinders have misfire indicated,plus misfire on all cylinders
Toyota Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 8 months ago

Ok, if all cylinders have a misfire then we either have a fuel/ignition issue. Do you have access to a fuel pressure gauge?
