An engine misfire occurs when one or more cylinders cannot deliver enough power. Drivers often describe the feeling as a jerk coming from the engine. When your engine misfires, it always triggers the check engine warning light to come on your dash. Additionally, you may experience sluggish acceleration or rough idling.
Unfortunately, engine misfires can be challenging to diagnose without professional help. Various factors, from malfunctioning oxygen sensors, dirty fuel injectors, and worn spark plugs, can cause engine misfire.
