The problem will happen from various degrees of severity. But, the car will usually misfire on one cylinder when I start it after it has been sitting for a while. Then when I accelerate, the problem will clear out. As I drive the car may misfire very briefly every few miles and I will lose some power for a split second. Occassionally the cylinder will misfire for several seconds, these periods are more rare while driving but usually occur while I'm going up, just stopped or went around a sharp curve. I have no idea where to begin with this.
I've never taken a car into a shop for anything other than very quick repairs where I get it back the next day. If I had to take it in on Thursday if I can't figure this out, how much longer might it take to get the car back. It would hurt a lot to be without the car longer than Thursday to Monday.
have the same problem?
