Q: Check Engine light on due to misfire

asked by on

My Check Engine light is on. The OBD II scan gave a code P0301.

Code P0301 indicates a misfiring issue. You likely need an ignition coil. There is a possibility that oil is leaking into your valve cover, which is causing this. If you haven’t replaced the spark plugs, you will need to soon. If you need help with this, a certified mechanic can visit your home or office to diagnose your engine misfire issue fully and have the necessary repairs made.
