SPARADIC MISFIRE DIAGNOSE
NEED TO GET EMISSIONS DONE
IS IT WORTH FIXING
Yes, it definitely is. Misfires are common problems with cars and misfires can be considered 'emissions' problems too... Like a bad EGR valve that will cause your engine to misfire and sometimes make it read codes for emissions. I would stick with the car if it were any repairs under a couple thousand dollars.... Its only a five year old car. Good luck!
hi mate it sounds to me to very likley to be a coil pack or spark plug fault .fairly easy to diagnose with the right equipment.should not be very expensive
I agree with dave. I had the same issue with my 04 R32. It was a coilpack that needed to be replaced... Good luck
