    on the way to work today, something felt strange with the exhaust and when it was shifting. On the way home i really noticed it, to me it seems as though a cylinder is misfiring. At a light it had a rough idle and sounded ready to die out, if i accelerate hard theres like a bumping action and a hesitation for it to shift, and the exhaust sounds off key. Im going to check the wiring and plugs tomorrow, and if i cant find anything wrong with it, its going to the shop tuesday. Does this seem like a misfiring to you guys?

    with my luck there is a possibility for everything to be wrong with it

    probably a bad wire or a bad plug.. maybe a coil? id guess a wire or plug though.

    make sure your wires are in the right firing order too.. if you took them off. good luck man
