Hello, thanks for writing in about your Honda N WGN. A likely possibility related to the misfiring may be that the car’s computer may have tried to recalibrate the fuel supply as a result of the faulty throttle control relay which can cause misfiring. I would recommend having an certified expert, like one from YourMechanic, diagnose your misfire firsthand for an accurate repair.
