    I have had this vehicle only a few months but it happens about every other time I start the car. I am also getting misreadings on whole system when I run a check.

    engine misfire caused by coils. I have had the check engine light come on, on several occasions and the DTC code were for coil packs. I have replaced the coils but still have the code. I have determined that the cause is the Ignition Control Module (ICM)
