I have noticed that when I watch measuring blocks 15 and 16 (misfire counters) that I seem to have a small number of misfires. Is this normal? Also seems strange but when I give it constant throttle and rev it a little it does not seem to register any misfires. I just monitored it for about 5 minutes and registered approx 15-20 misfires total.
1. Why do they only show up at very low rpm / idle?
2. Are a low number of misfires at idle normal?
3. Are any misfires normal at idle?
4. Should tapping the throttle at idle create misfires?
I have replaced 2 of my coils due to the common issue related when they fail. That had the flashing MIL symptom, rough idle etc.. After replacing the bad coils I've never had that symptom "flashing MIL" ever again, nor was the idle ever even close to that bad. Lately I have noticed that while idling it would occasionally misfire, nothing near previously but misfire nonetheless.
I had just replaced my plugs w brand new decent NGKs prior to my coils going nutz and being replaced. Did they nuke my plugs too???
Please LMK if I have left out any needed details.
