Misfires runs rough, check engine light on, reads number 6 and 8 not firing changed plugs and wires problem still exist.
Cylinder #2 triggered a code. engine runs a little rough. Lower gas mileage. Hoping engine cleaner additive will open up the injector. No luck so far, I'm on second tank of gas after problem occurred.
