Likely suspects:
worn out spark plugs
dirty air filter
vacuum leak
worn out oxygen sensor
bad gas or loose gas cap

If you can't troubleshoot and diagnose the problem causing the misfire, take the car in for service.

Check if there is spark on the ignition leads as well. Open distributor cap. A build up of carbon on the rotor and or cap ignition points could give poor spark, clean or carbon.

Check engine light is on and it reads Misfire on #2 cylinder. Also oxygen sensor bank2 sensor 1 and Bank 1 sensor 3 behind the converter. Engine running rough.


the engine miss fire can cause the other codes to set. you need to repair the miss fire and clear all codes after the miss is repaired then see if the 02 sensor codes return. the miss fire is probably a bad spark plug wire a good tune-up should take care of it ........HAVE A GREAT DAY

Engine miss fire


Engine misfires can be caused by a variety of anomalies.

Check the computer with an OBD-II Scanner. I just got one from Walmart for $98 plus tax, and it has English descriptions of codes that it reads.

It will tell you which cylinder(s) are missing and if you have any sensors that have issues or problems.

This is an invaluable tool for fixing engine misfires. Good luck to you.
