Check that the HT leads are separated and not touching each other. The misfire may be simply the spark being inducted into the plug with the least resistance and is random and that is what is setting off the light.

This is strange. The tcs is a traction controll error. If you are getting misfire codes and traction control warnings, then I would have your control module tested to make sure it is not having intermittent power issues to each component.

Or just spark plugs or wires. Or Distributor/ignition. check the cheap things first. Also, replace your fuel filter.

Engine runs rough


misfire 3.5L V6
those disconnects, each , will slam the PCM into limphome mode.
you need your own $9 scan tool,
pulling the sensors, only stores DTC codes. that only hide there real ones.
next time you pull a sensor, use the scan tool and reset the PCM.
clearing all codes, then drive and see what fails.
imagine a sick patient in hospital bed and you cutting lines to the person.
you cant fix cars with no scan tool and 100x that , if intermittent.
cant. (i can, but have voltmeters and such that can log data)
running good before, , all cars do that even new. they all run
what counts when its bad.
so connect the scan tool and log the sensors, and see
what DTC pops first. and see all the sensor data.
bank1 OXY sensor 1 heaters is bad. (or wires to it melted)

on some cars , if the heater shorts, it will take out other sensors
here ill look yours up in alldata.com
the heater runs off 12vdc, and the current is monitored by the PCM.
id fix this first, (after all , its bad, fix it)
P300, is all 6 misfiring, that is most likely bad fueling, too rich or way to lean.
the OXY B1S1 short will short the C436 power bus, and maybe
slam B1 full rich,

C436 runs many other things that need power, so if it shorts.
all bets OFF !! all black-yellow wire power feeds.
it runs PCM pin E1, ,EGR, fuel press.reg.sol. , intake air bypass #1 and 2. and screws up altternator pin1 (96 only)

yah, B1S1 , new, and if wires burnt there , fixed.

See if your car has an ignition control module. They will go bad over time and cause random engine misfiring. Just went thru it with my 2002 Buick LeSabre. 120,000 miles on the engine. Replaced plugs, plug wires and check the coils. It was the ICM.

2000 Acura TL misfire codes


My TL would do the same, crank, crank, crank, give it gas, crank, etc, then finally, after everyone was looking at me like i was crazy, it would eventually start.
I noticed that strangely enough during this time, I filled up w/ regular gas at the same Exxon 3 times n a row, instead of going to shell like i normally do. (I used regular from shell or chevron in mine for 8 years & never a problem) Oddly enough,it would drive ok, kinda rough, for a short time then, i would walk out a store & it wouldn't start. I would give it gas while I was crankn it sometimes even until a cylinder would misfire & make that pop. when it would finally idle, just barely enough for me to put it n drive, i would step on it to keep it going. I even rode around for a week with that scanner hooked up to my car & the only code that EVER came up was cylinder misfire & only if i had to get on it & make it misfire. I put that fuel injector in my gas tank every time i filled up for about a month after the exxon fill ups & went back to shell & put plus instead of regular. We checkd the fuel pump, fine, the fuel filter, doesnt have one.
I have been fortunate to not have it happen since then but, I did some research on it & found that it could also be that the valve that controls the emissions, it would sometimes get stuck & not open/close properly thereby causing the engine to not be able to receive or give off the correct amount of air flow & therefore it wouldnt turnover to start until i would force it by giving it gas or making it misfire, or waiting a while for it to cool off.
Also, check out ur air compressor & make sure its not starting to go out. turn off the ac & see if it still sounds like ****. if it sounds better when its off then the fact that its going out causes it to pull more on the engine in order to keep it going. This could be why its running rough, like feels like its having trouble shifting in 3rd & 4th gears.
Just some advice I found helpful when I had the issue, dont know if its the cause of ur issue but, i thought I would let u know.....
I hope this helps ..... good luck!
