    did it break?? was it just maintenance?? the reason I ask is that it is an interference motor and if the belt failed, it may have bent a valve and that would be the reason for your missfire.
    have a compression test done to verify.

    Hey Roy thanks for your help. Took car to Carl Buger this morning they hooked it up to computer there. Found no error codes, nor did the egine misfire during there testing,. The tech said that maybe the cars computer needed to reset after the work that was done on it yesterday. Bottom line CB said the car is running find no faults anywhere. I'm a happy camper and will maintain my car much more better in the future .
