2004 PT Cruiser touring edition misfires and the cruise control no longer works. When I shut off engine and restart cruise control works again and car run great. Took it to a machinic and it doesn't do it...

the reason for the misfire and loss of cruise control is because the electrical system has an intermittent power failure . It will be difficult to diagnose in a shop because of the condition that is causing it . Some items are , dangling items on ignition key, loose /dirty battery connections, loose dirty earth connections, alternator drive belt condition /tension , loose fuses, loose ECM wiring fittings , faulty immobiliser, dirt at the cam/crank position sensor. Take it to an accredited shop that can get computer access to the CPU /ECM program and on their laptop they may be able to pinpoint if there is a problem showing

I have a 1997 chevy malibu 2.4 twin cam an the engine light was on so i had it checked an they said it was a misfire on cylinder one what could cause this issue

who they ? they did not tell you why ? could be spark plug wires, do a tune up, include new air & fuel filters, spark plugs, etc., you need # 1 spark plug to fire in order to start engine. winter time brings out all the problems, get a repair manual from a parts store, it will help you like, like having your own mechanic, just do it !

99 malibu always read inconsistant fuel levels but now engine light came on and stalled on the highway.Codes read lean fuel and misfire. Exhaust smells horrible she sputters when left idle and idles low...

check to make sure catylitic convertor is not plugged. if it is ok, then put a code scanner on to read codes, may have a bad 02 sensor. if you dont have a scanner, most auto parts places will scan vehicles for free.

Engine light flashing

The most common problem for a misfire and a flashing check engine light is the ignition coi on plug.
Each spark plug has its own coil pack. With a coil pack failing it will also cause a airflow code as the car will start to run rich. With the vehicle misfiring it can also inhibit the Cruise control but it will not necessarily bring on a gearbox fault. The most common cause of the gearbox fault light coming on as you describe is usually a weak battery.
I would replace the coil pack and have the battery tested.
Thanks and good luck
