Car will turn over but will not stay running or it misfires. I have replaced the spark plugs and wires. It has a new alternator and battery. I have also used a injection cleaner. Car mufflers has a hole in it under the engine.

Scan for codes and check fuel pressure first.

Here is a link to an article from this site that features written step by step instructions and pictures explaining how to do the scan yourself. Also, I have included a link to our YouTube channel with a how to video on code scanning.
