Hi there. Thanks for this information. Based on what I’ve reviewed and read, there are a few other parts you should inspect to try and pinpoint the source of your engine misfire and acceleration problems including; 1 - You may have a malfunctioning fuel injector 2 - The catalytic converter may be faulty or ’full’ requiring replacement 3 - A faulty electrical harness to fuel injectors 4 - Throttle position sensor is faulty 5 - Dirty or clogged fuel injectors or throttle body
Try inspecting these components and see if the issue clears up. If not, feel free to contact one of our mobile mechanics to set up a car is slow to accelerate inspection.
