Q: Engine misfiring.

asked by on January 13, 2016

The Check Engine light is on. The engine is misfiring.

A misfire can be caused by a lot of things, from a worn spark plug to an internal engine problem. The first step is to retrieve the diagnostic codes associated with the check engine light. These codes will provide a starting point for the diagnostic procedure. I suggest you have a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose and repair your vehicle.
