Hello, thank you for writing in. The vehicle’s cooling leak may be causing the misfire. The leak needs to be repaired first, and then we can take any other issues from there. The starting problem may also be the vehicle’s safety features preventing the car from starting until it cools down. It may also be a fluid level sensor that tells the vehicle when you are out of coolant. Overheating is the #1 way you can ruin your engine, and the vehicle wants to keep you from doing so. Solve the coolant leak and overheating issue first, and the other issues will likely go away. If they do not, you can look into cylinder 1 further, since it is the one registering as misfiring. For more help with either issue, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.
