2015 with 53K miles. We have had the van less than a year.
Last night my wife called and said the van was sluggish and the check engine light was blinking. She pulled over and shut the vehicle off to call me. I had her start again to see if the condition remained. It did not so she got the vehicle home(only 3 miles away).
I get home, look at the owners manual and see that the flash indicates an misfire condition. I was able to look at codes using a jumper wire on the ODBII plug and didn't get any P codes. So I proceed to check the spark plugs. I check 4-6 first and all look good. I then move to the back and cylinder 1 looks good, 2 was just caked with residue and it looked like the electrode nipples were worn. Cylinder 3 look the same, but not as bad as 2. I checked the oil as well after it cooled and it was low to the add line. Last oil change it didn't burn any oil. Now this time I am down a qt. it appears.
First of all I do not have a muzzler or anything on currently, the S-VCM is on its way.
From my reading my understanding is its not cylinder 2 that gets turned off. So what am I looking at? Is this because of the VCM issues? Should I change the plugs and see what happens or should I just take it to the dealership and see if it is because of the Piston ring TSB? Thank you for your insights everyone. Hoping for the best, expecting the worst.
