Misfire

So my service engine soon light came on and the guy at valvoline looked it up and said its either a misfire in the third cylinder or misfire at 1000 revs. It misfires over 1000 so I'm guessing its the third cylinder. Any idea how to fix this problem?

Check your spark plugs for corrosion, your spark plug wires for exposed wiring, and add a fuel system cleaner into your gas tank. You can find it at any local gas station

Probably the coil-on-plug for the number 3 cylinder.

his v6 doesn't use a COP but has an all in one coil pack

@op...i would suggest just spending $20 and getting all new plugs...they are pretty easy to swap out with a good extension. most likely its just a plug. however if that doesn't help afterward you can look at your wires and coil pack

I'm going to start off with, cars are strange and everything is connected. When i bought my car i had a missfire, for over a year and a half I've been trying to figure out what is causing it. The day before yesterday my alternator goes out so i get it replaced and I replace my battery and now I have no misfire so far. Now it could just be that the car needs to get used to the new part, but it feels like it pulls a bit better and like I said, so far, no misfire. now i just need to finish my tune up next paycheck so i can get rid of my stutter...lol

Might as well replace them all. The MSD superconductors are pretty good
