Have you done a tune up on it lately?If not do spark plugs,wires,dist. cap and rotor.You might also want to clean the throttle body while you are at it.

Dear Tech,
Thank you very much for your prompt reply, and re-tune up!; I did half of it, i.e I changed spark plugs, fuel filter, air filter, checked HT cables for any crack, it was good, but to be frank with you the distributer and rotor did't check them.

For my future check on this fault, if all what you mentioned are OK, is there any connection with catalytic converter if that failed for some reason, or any electronic chip?.. many thanks

If your missfiring I doubt that it is the cat converter.I would look at the wires again and the cap and rotor.They can look good but still be missfiring.

Dear Tech,
HI,
Back to my missfiring problem, I am sorry that I was not able to communicate with you recently, cause I am buisy and can't keep the car with the mechanic, but He changed the plugs, fuel filter, ait filter, cables... the problem still there, I will try to clean the throttle body as well as rotor, and will come back to you.

Just a stupid question!, what would be the price of the cables set for the plugs.?? any where in this globe, except in dubai as it is around $ 235!, we don't have tax, custom only 4% at our side.

Best regards.
