engine misses and kicks back like it it jump time can it be the coil houising on 2001 Oldsmobile Alero

Asked by for the 2001 Oldsmobile Alero
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.
replaced coil houising, it fixed the problem
