    a free code pull never identifies part failure, just sysem failure.

    a muti missfire could come from a few things. a crank sensor, injectors clogged or faulty, vacuum leaks.
    you need a real shop for a real diag to pinpoint the issue and give you a bid. replacing the plugs and wires is a good start but a guess at best that did not fix it.

    for a list of shops in your area, click on the directory tab at the top of the page.

    thanks for using repairpal.
