Engine Light Came on and had It Checked They said Piston #1 Was Miss firing so I did a Tune up. After the tune up the light came back on saying #3piston was miss firing The Codes have been Cleared and took the solenoid back out and put it back in had the codes cleared again. Ran for two days and the light is back on now it says multiple miss fire…Do I need to take in somewhere and have checked I don’t want to damage my engine or can I run it for a few more days till I’m off and try to fix the problem.

The cap carrier in the top is a common failure if you have the 4 cylinder.
Did you gap the plugs correctly?

Ok, scratch that. You may have a coil failure. They all need to be checked.
