Had a very slight miss when under moderate acceleration. Ran a scanner and came up with cyl 3 misfire. I replace all the plugs put the car back together, hit the key and the car ran like crap. Would barely run. Also heard something "rattling". I hit the gas and it sounded like a nut or something may have fell into intake but I did not ccompletely take the intake off. I only moved it to the left and right as I needed. Also I did not end up missing any bolts or anything so I do not believe anything fell into my motor. Anyway I tore the car apart 3 more times taking every plug out and finally the knocking stopped. The car how ever is still running aweful. I have 2 coils on order right now hoping it may fix the problem but I'm not so sure. The knocking/rattling sound has me scared because I've heard horror stories about timing problems. I haven't ran my car low on oil. Check it pretty often. Also I don't understand how it could run fine then with new plugs it runs like crap. Also the first time I tore it back down after the miss started I put old plugs back in it still missed something aweful. Please any advice would be amazing. Thanks - Brandon
