    Hello all.
    So today, i had another misfire. When the first one occured, i replaced coils and spark plugs, 1500 miles later. same thing happened.
    So i went ahead, and took off the headers, cleaned everything out with carbon build up cleaning substance. Once i put everything back together, the car has no power at all.
    Calling AAA in the morning to get it towed. Not sure what caused the issue. Fuel injectors seemed fine, there was a lot of carbon build up in the engine, but not overwhelming, After i put it all back together, it seems worse now than it did before. Car barely has any power at all.
    the codes it was spitting out were misfire in cylinder 1, random cylinder misfire, and turbo leak.
    Anyone have this happen to them before?
