Random misfires

Got yet another problem with the Traverse. This time engine running super rough and check engine light starts flashing. Got it home checked codes and has a random misfire code and misfire on cyls 1 and 5. Started it this morning and its running smooth and the check engine light is out. Taking to the dealer monday but any ideas on what to expect

Re: Random misfires

How many miles on the plugs? lot of issues have come up with bad plugs being the cause, maybe a defective coil as well. If the dealer cannot duplicate the problem, they may not do anything or start changing parts which may, or may not fix the problem. Is it under warranty?

I won't chance it to drive anymore. Just replaced all spark plugs and coils (if you hasn't done so) ....this can lead to CAT to fail and others issues which will cost 10 times more than taken care of $150 worth of issue.
