If that doesnt cure it, which im confident it will, move on to coil packs.. The plugs need to be changed period. Try to get the cable and pull codes, that will make it easier to diagnose if its the packs. Hope this helps


Edit just saw your at Kms not miles lol... either way plugs are simple and will give you peace of mind.. By 30K miles my were smoked lol ill be doing them every 10K miles
Same here. At 37k my plugs caused my misfires. Replaced them and the problem has been solved for the most part.

Remember to always get the engine up to temperature. This will cause misfires as well, or so ive experienced.
