miss fireing on the  3rd cilinder what would this cost to correct

1 Answer

98,565

14 year old car with only 38000 miles tells me that there is a high possibility of partially restricted fuel injectors, maybe even low fuel pressure. First thing to do is change the fuel filter, and add a bottle of Techron to the fuel in the tank and drive it around and see if it improves, if it does then refill the fuel tank with either Chevron or Texaco fuels, if it doesn't then you will need to take it in and have it checked out, you may need a tune up just due to age.
