Hi there. When you have a misfire that happens after replacing ignition components, it’s usually due to the spark plug wires or coil packs not being installed correctly or being the wrong parts. It might be a good idea to have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete an engine misfiring inspection, so they can determine why you’re having this problem and recommend the right repairs.
