My impala has been missing. No lights have come on the dash. I tried changing gas and using gas cleaner but that doesn't solve the problem.

Have you tried changing your oil? Depending on the outside temperature, you will also have to use a different viscosity.

I would say you changed the trans fluid to attempt
a fix for something

Old fluid out new in ,NOT A FIX AT ALL

You may have bad trans solenoids,flushing in my
opinion causes that

I never flush some people do

Have the real trans issue properly diagnosed

Your trying to put a band aid on it ,won't work

Mileage has nothing to do with anything,seldom--ever

I have seen cars come of the assy line & stop --before
they got on the car carriers to leave the factory

Random mulitple misfire

A random miss-fire is almost impossible to diagnose.
You are dealing with fuel and ignition so there is a long list of causes.
You may have to wait until it becomes a solid miss on one cylinder.
a mechanic would need to be able to make the problem happen to find it.

Do you actually feel a miss? If not, it could be an open or short caused by either the accident or the repair. If the light didn't illuminate before you had the repair done, it is very possible something is amiss as a result of the repair. If you can feel the engine missing, start it when it's cold and let it run for 15 or 20 seconds then shut it down. Feel the exhaust manifolds. The manifold will be cooler corresponding to the cylinder that is missing. It could be a connection to the coil pack on that cylinder or even a bad coil pack.

Do you have the idle speed turned up to keep it from dying? Because it is high. Check engine light on? Have you checked for vacuum leaks at the gasket under the throttle body? How does the car run under acceleration? You might have a worn distributor shaft.

Multiple random miss fire

Now change the distributor. Get one from salvage or e-bay. Did the timing belt jumped a tooth or is it new. Vitally
