2001 Oldsmobile Alero Question: engine misses and kicks back like it it jump time can it be the coil houising
If your car has the 2.4 liter engine the coil cover can cause your problem. It could develop a hair line crack and cause a ignition missfire or cross fire two cylinders at same time. Its similar to a distributor cap on older cars.
