I am looking into buying an 99 Acura slx the check engine light is on and he said his coding machine says misfire what could this be? He said he hauls his boat from the beach every couple weekends and thinks that may be causing it to go and go off later what do you think problem? Should we purchase it, need safe car for I year old.

Proberbly just a tune issue, towing a bot should not be a concern here.

Get a scan done to reconfirm the trouble code. Misfiring codes can mean something simple as bad spark plugs or it could be something serious as a bad cylinder.
