So my car is misfiring I replaced the spark plugs and all the little things. My service engine soon light is on. So while im driving sometimes it runs fine but it seems like if I drive it for too long thats when the misfire starts happening. The car will start spitting at around 60 mph. Somtimes itll spit a few times then sometimes itll do it really bad. When I come to a complete stop like at a stop light my car just dies and the check gauges light comes on. Sometimes it starts back up right away and other times it wont start at all for a bit. When I keep trying to turn it on it starts to smell like gas. Also sometimes if I put the car in park the engine will start reving a bit like someone is stepping on the gas. If I step on the gas to hard the exhaust will make this loud bang noise which is prob because of the misfire I dont know. My friend said it sounds like your car cant breath thats while its idling like that. If you have any ideas please let me know.

Ok, first of all we have to find out what code is set. If the check engine light is on there will be a code set in your computer. You need a scan tool to get this code. If you take it to Autozone or a place like that they will scan your car for free. When they do write down the code and get back to me.
