    Thumbs down Repeated cylinder misfire issues

    My 2016 200 is back at the dealer for the 3rd time for a cylinder misfire. Each time its a different cylinder. First time they replaced a spark plug. Second time they took a little more time and replace the cylinder head for the problem cylinder. It started acting up again on Saturday just before I headed out to take a bunch of teenagers out for my daughter's birthday. Luckily the same service tech was there and just checked me in, got me a rental in record time. I drive alot of miles but mostly freeway and the car has about 48k miles on it right now. I'm just really sick of the whole car. Do these issues give me a dirty Carfax or diminished value on this lemon of a car? Is this a widespread problem or did I just pick out the lemon from the bunch?

    Few questions.
    4 cylinder or 6? Assume 6?
    I assume the ECU calibration is up to date?
    Does this happen at load, idle, or specific time (raining)?
    Whats your air cleaner look like?
    Are you getting more codes then just misfire cylinder #?

    If you are not technically inclined...it's ok.
    Ask if they have done a cylinder leak down and compression test. If they haven' request it. It's not normal for a misfire to jump cylinders unless it's fuel or ignition related. My guess is it's fuel pressure related, or engine harness related, possibly crank or cam position sensor.

    My car is a 4 cylinder. I'm not technically knowledgeable about the car. The issue happens while driving on a flat, straight road, dry weather. I haven't asked about the cylinder leak down and compression test but will mention it the next service I get. Never considered it was a fuel pressure or other issues. It uses a lot of oil. Example - got an oil change, 2 weeks (and 1,000 miles) later checked my oil and it was down 2 quarts. Doesn't seem like in a relatively new car that is regularly maintained it should be drinking oil that quickly.

    If you are losing that much oil, and there are no drips under the car when it is parked, I would check the PCV ( Positive Crankcase Ventilation) valve. If it is stuck open there is enough vacuum to suck oil out of the sump. I have a V6 and change the oil every 10,000 Km and never have to add oil between changes. Hope you find the problem.
