Bad misfire

run the fault codes as misfire can be from injectors , low fuel pressure and ignition problems
all temp gauges will show a rise on stopping an engine as there is still residual heat in the block and heads with no water circulation and cooling
the fire from the exhaust indicates an exhaust valve is not closing properly so a compression test would be in order to check for valve problems or hydraulic follower problems

This car has coil packs which connect to each spark plug.the spark plugs sit deep under the top cover and need a special plug spanner to remove as the access is narrow and deep.

first check the condition of each plug....replace which the correct type ....make sure they are the correct not over tighten just a quarter turn after they car engine .....if it still misfires then you need to replace the ht leads ....swop them with a new set.....if still misfires then it's the coil packs which are the most expensive part of replacement.i sourced mine on eBay.hope this is of this is electronic ignition the misfire is most likely due to 1. Dirty plugs with incorrect gaps....2.faulty ht leads.... 3. Faulty coil packs....4. Incorrect timing.

Why does my vehicle stall when at idle.

Intermittin Engine Stall
Engine No Start
MISFIRE IN motor cylinder is more likely the cause to engine stall and hard start.
You will have to fix this problem first,
A misfire, most the time, is caused by, incorrect cylinder firing order (diagram at bottom). Or no or low cylinder compression
no or low compression is the result of A Vacumm leak.
If the timing chain was recently replaced, the valve cover had to be removed, the valve cover gasket could cause a huge vacumm leak which would effect some if not all 6 cylinders,

Lack/loss of power
Hard start
Engine hesitation

For Now
check firing order( coil pack to sparkplug)
check sparkplugs


I hope this helps for now

It might be your coolant temp. sensor-not the sender for your dash gauge, but the sensor that tells the computer the engine temp. I'd also replace the spark plugs. If they have a sooty, black coating your engine is running rich. Does the engine light still come on? If same code, you need to check that circuit out more fully.

Misfiring in idle and up hills

I had a problem with misfires on a Buick V-8. My engine would act up the first time it was raised above idle. If you started it at idle it ran smooth, but once it gained rpms that was it. My problem was weak valve springs. Even with hydraulic lifters it did not rattle, click, or give any indication it was running loose. Take off each valve cover separately and while the engine runs put your thumb on the valve spring. If you can make it misfire by pushing down on the valve spring it is weak. Repeat on the other side. It will be messy.
