97 buick skylark 4 cyl misfires--changeed plugs--still misfires--check engine light is on


If you have a 1997 Skylark w/ a four cylinder engine, then you have the same one I do, a 2.4L dual overhead cam. It is not a quad 4, different beast altogether. I believe your problem might be the plug boots, did you replace them? It's a relatively cheap solution, about $17 at AutoZone if I remember right.
