2006 Cadillac DTS 100,000 mi,
Car just recently started running rough.....at idle and under normal drive speeds....suspect coil
Engine was misfiring. Took to shop where cylinder one coil was verified as needing replaced. Once replaced, misfiring stopped.
misfire found in one cyclider...replaced 2 ignition coils so far, spark plugs twice, and all oil gaskets in the engine...Over $5K into fixes and it's having the same issue again.
