    Continuing to drive your 1995 Pontiac Sunfire with an engine misfire, no matter what the cause is not advisable. The unburned fuel being sent into the catalytic converter can cause it to overheat resulting in damage to the converter. You will also suffer from reduced fuel mileage and the harmful emissions produced from your car will be greatly increased Please have your car properly repaired as soon as possible!.
