sounds like fuel pump is failing ,or fuel filter is clogged, any of this will cause a misfire, that will go away when you fix the real problem. could be clogged catalectic converter also

So what can Ido to fix that is there something I can put in my gas to unclog it cause when I hit the bottom of it from under the car it started again.


Definitely fuel pump if you hit the tank an it started
