Question about 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe
The very first thing that you should do next is to take a compression reading especially the #4 cylinder, to determine if the mis-fire is caused by a mechanical problem or an electrical problem. If you are looking for an electrical problem when the problem is actually a mechanical one, you could wind up wasting a lot of money and time.
A mechanical problem that would cause a low compression mis-fire in the engine could be a burnt or bent intake or exhaust valve, a worn out or broken piston or compression ring, or even a warped cylinder head.
An electrical mis-fire would most likely be caused by a faulty ignition coil, a worn out or cracked distributor cap, worn out ignition wires, worn out spark plugs, or a faulty fuel injector.
