Asked by Jan 21, 2017 at 12:05 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had my truck checked and it said 6 and 8 misfire
and random misfire, can you tell me what that is?
Cylinders? Plugs?
It shakes when you reach 40 mph

1 Answer


How many miles on the truck? Around 100K, I would replace the spark plugs first. Then determine if the coils are actually bad. You can swap the coils from one cylinder to another and re-scan for codes to see if they move to that cylinder indicating a fault coil.
