misfire cylinder 1, we replace coil, plugs and injector. just to find out this was the problem.
After driving for about 1 hr or so my engine light goes on and stays on for about 1 day then goes off, some time it will not do it for days then other time it will be off 1 day then on the next....I was told it was do to the carbon bilt up in a 2.7 , I use only good gas and add seaform every 3 tank fulls...even add to oil about 300 miles before I do a change ..and it still does it...I hate it but car still runs the same with it on or I'm trying to live with it but hate it
