Hello. Most of the time if you have a multiple cylinder misfire such as this, it is caused by a fuel system problem. If the fuel pressure is low, then this will occur. If the fuel pressure is fine, then I would also check the signal from the crank sensor as a failing crank sensor can cause this. If that is fine also then I would suspect that there is an electrical issue in the circuit on that one side of the engine. If you want to have this checked out, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can come to your home or office to diagnose the misfire and follow through with correct repairs.
