my excursion has been acting up since i used gas from a different gas station. my suv seem to be bogging and when i pressed the gas it shakes alot. i bought a matco code reader and it said something about cylinder 3 and 7 misfiring. is this the cause of the gas that i used? is this why my suv shakes alot when i try to go 50mph?

    Sounds like you have two cylinders out of eight misfiring, your Excursion has one coil for each sparkplug you could have a bad coil or needs a new set of plugs, your vehicle calls for Autolite double platinum with a .054 gap
