I was driving to work today and my car started missing really badly. It does it mostly when you press on the gas in a higher gear and the engine has to pull a little bit harder at first. But it is a bad miss, I mean it hesitates like no one's business. It has 52k miles on it and the 918 springs have about 25k miles on them. I do not take it to the track at all, so I don't think these would be worn out yet. I am not a mechanic by any means, so the only thing I really know how to do on my own is check to make sure all 8 spark plug wires are connected. I can't do that yet because I am at work but outside of this, what could be my problem? Any help would be appreciated. Oh, and if there are details that I left out that need to be included please let me know. Thanks!
easiest way to find out is to scan it. Parts stores do it for free. Could be a few different things.
So even if the SES light isn't on, will the scan tool still pick up misses? If so, does it tell specifically what it is or would it just say "Misfire on cylinder 6" and then I would have to investigate further?
