I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant ES 4 cylinder w/ 121,000 miles.
i took an emissions test and did not pass due to a misfire detected in cylinder 2 (code P0302). My 'service engine soon' light is on. I have tried a few things to fix it like.I checked the compression in all 4 cylinders, changed the spark plugs and plug wires, and checked the coils, but the SES light is still on and my car still runs the same. When I accelerate, or I am going up a hill, my car kind of 'boggs' and shakes w/ kind of a ticking noise, it seems like it doesnt want to shift. What needs replaced/fixed? Please help! I am sooo broke from trying to figure this out! I am extremely illiterate when it comes to car repair!
thank you sooo much!
