Miss fire.

So I have a 3.8L V6 and it just started miss firing. It only does it when I accelerate real fast or when I am going up a hill. Any ideas to where I may start to fix the problem?

I Litterally just fixed the same problem this weekend. My car started misfiring pretty bad and set off the check engine light. One of the spark plug wires shorted out, and the plug went bad. So maybe yours has the same problem? I had it where it'd misfire big time around 40-50 mph then go away, hope this helps a bit.

Same thing happened to me, but I changed my plugs, wires and finnaly the coil pack. The coil pack was the problem. I had a dead cylinder
