What I have found is 9 out of 10 times it's a worn distributer gear.
Many try to say it's the fuel injection , but I have found it to be the distributer gear has worn out.

ENGINE MISFIRE

There are few possibilities that can cause engine misfire issues. It can be issue with spark plugs or faulty spark plugs. Also get the compression test done for cylinders. If any of cylinder shows low compression then required, then that particular cylinder will cause misfire.

Also get obd codes scanned, the error code will let you know which cylinder is misfiring or all cylinders are misfiring.

Random Multiple Misfire code


They could be related but, obviously, it could also be many other different problems. I would replace the evap solenoid and reset your codes to see if the light comes back on. If your CEL comes back on, get back on here and let me know. If replacing the EVAP solenoid doesn't fix the random misfire we will work through the steps to figure it out for you. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!
