i turn the car on and i hear it missing it stopped a few moments later
next day same thing but i was running late to i took off stopped missing down the block
day 3 didn't stop missing
now i checked if its the spark to the cylinders 6 are good
the car was previously parked for over 2 years and right away i poured in fuel injector cleaner and anything sea foam motor treatment i swear that stuff smelled like pure alcohol
anyways it was running strong for over 2 week as a daily driver
if it is an injector are there any other injectors from other engines fit the car
and i need this asap!

1991 alfa romeo 164 (s)
new ngk iridium day after i first got her to start

what kind of car is this, son?

It always helps to know make *I presume Alfa in this case*, model, year, and any other information that can help the audience understand what your problem might be.

First thing I would suggest to do would be to change the plugs in the car, regardless of what make and model it is.

Yes, it really would make it easier to diagnose a problem if we knew more info. It's no big deal, but tell us know more, and we'll try to help you more.

she is new to me like i said she was running great
and it was the 1st cylinders ignition wire witch was also lagging down 4th
so i was only running on 4 cylinders yet still getting 25mpg

i found out when it was dark out i opened the hood and saw a light flickering
it was shorting on the exhaust manifold i took it off and it was burnt
quick replacement got her running 100%
