Well, if your cylinder went then you're gonna need a new motor.

Bad plug, bad coil pack, bad idle control valve, bad throttle actuator..

These would be common issues that would cause that.

If a cylinder went, you'd be in a world of hurt. I doubt it unless you did something out of the ordinary.

I think it's your car telling you that you need a tune from me

I have anti-fart protection in the latest version.
