Cylinders 3 misfire
« on: October 14, 2018, 05:32:08 PM »
So my engine light came on. Where should I take it to be fixed?  I (dealership) replaced all the spark plugs and coil pack(?) on cylinder 2 about 1.5 years/6,000 miles ago.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

Does the jeep feel like it's running poorly or did the check engine light just come on? Are you confident enough to pop the hood and just do a basic visual inspection to make sure none of the plug wires are loose or chewed by squirrels?

Check engine light came onafter I drove Macon to Perry, then a couple short spots in Perry. It sounds and drives smoothly.  Advance auto ran a scan and that’s the code it pulled. I am better with Diesel engines than gas, but I’ll take a look and see if I can see anything obvious. Thanks!

If it was me and it drove smoothly, I'd reset it if I didn't see anything after a quick look and see if it comes back. I'm planning to go to Steak and Shake this Wed so if you can't get it cleared or can't see anything, I don't mind taking a quick look.
