Hi I’m getting a code Cylinder 1 Misfire. I know that can mean a lot of things but I need to get this car fixed fast and inexpensively! I’m a single mom with no car and my kids have to get to school!
My car was driving perfect never over heated. I went somewhere turned it off came back and it wouldn’t start but it was trying. Once it got completely cooled off it does start but is making a loud knocking sound. It looses power and turns off also. It won’t drive down the street because it dies. I changed the spark plugs (copper) and coils and it’s still doing the same thing. Someone suggested i might have got bad gas. Do you think it could be the fuel injectors? It doesn’t seem like enough gas is greeting through to keep it running. There’s also a lot of fumes and smoke coming from the tail pipe. It just scares me that it’s making the knocking sound. Please any advice would be helpful!
