Q: Two cylinders misfiring

asked by on

My car has two cylinders misfiring.

There are many possibilities for misfires. Spark plugs are common on your engine to cause misfires. Fuel injectors and ignition coils are likely as well. If there are only 2 cylinders misfiring, they could be related, or not. If they are on the same bank, one misfire can affect fuel trim on that bank and create more misfires. The computer will need scanned to see all of the trouble codes that are set. If you would like this repaired, I would recommend having having a certified mechanic inspect your misfiring issue.
