So since I had an interceptor gauge I went thru the readings. I found that I had 3 misfires. but as i drove the misfires went back to 0. It did count 1 misfire a mile later but cleared again as I sped up. I haven seen any other counts and I checked the codes nothing was thrown.
So my question is Does the interceptor gauge clear/interfer the misfire data or is the misfire info only temperary read once and gone?
One other note with the radio up and the electrical steering it was hard to realize that the car had even stalled.
Did you check your battery connections? With a turn-stall, check its secured. Otherwise could have a harness issue, where grounding is occuring with inappropriate touching!
