Hi Darryll. Thanks for submitting your question today. It’s rather unlikely that the coolant flush itself is causing the misfire. However, if during the coolant flush an ignition system component or even a fuel injector harness was accidentally moved, this could be causing the problem. It’s probably a good idea to have a professional mechanic complete a misfire inspection, so they can determine the root source of this problem and ensure the right repairs are completed.
