Hello there, it is very common to have a misfire fault as vehicles age and go up in mileage. The most likely cause would be the ignition coils, fuel pump, fuel injector, MAF sensor, oxygen sensor, or a wiring fault. If you need some assistance with this, consider enlisting a qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, who will be able to diagnose your misfire fault and perform any repairs required.
