    It doesn't smoke. It only has 56,175k and we just had an oil change done at the end of December.

    No the spark plugs or wires have never been replaced? Our mechanic placed it on a diagnostic machine and the problem is in the 3rd cylinder. Suggested we do process of elimination. Would you start with the spark plugs & wires?

    were the spark plugs or spark plug wires ever replaced? advance or autozone scans for fault codes and may be able to pinpoint the main problem, It could be so many things, could be a vacuum leak, bad plug wires , oxygen sensor, dirty fuel filter, clogged injectors , and so on

    I would first make sure all the spark plug wires are tight on both ends , then if they are, take off 1 wire at a time off of each spark plug and and make sure the plug is not loose, If everything is tight and secure then I would replace the plugs and wires. if a plug or a wire or both are loose it could make a cylinder seem dead, like it is running on 1 less cylinder, causes power loss, and very rough running, let me know how you make out

Sounds like you overheated, the clicking sound could be preignition ping. Check coolant lever. Don’t fill when hot, let engine cool down before refilling coolant

Check engine light came on 2.4 cylinder. Sounds

whenever the check engine light comes on a fualt code is stored in the memory of the computer that runs the engine and emmisssions system, you need to have the system tested to see what that fault code is, any Kragen or Aamco transmission does this for free, tell them u have a check engine light and want a code test.
