How long can I drive with misfiring cylinders

20

Asked by Aug 26, 2016 at 05:41 PM about the 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan S 4Motion

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I got an engine light on for few days now. A shop diagnosed it as "multiple
cylinders misfire..". It can be coils, plugs or a fuel filter... I added a fuel filter
chemical cleaner  in the gas tank yesterday. Shaking seems to be better, but
the engines seems to be little bit louder when working. The light is still on. Can
I ignore it for a week or two? Is it safe to drive?

If the check engine light is flashing I would not drive it. Doing so can melt the catalytic converter(s) and cause other damage.
