I don’t know what’s causing this random misfire. When it’s in gear and it misfires, I have to put the car in neutral and back into gear in order to stop the misfires and this works most of the time. I’ve also attached a screenshot of my monitors on my phone when the OBD is connected.

I need help and before anyone says to look at old posts, I have looked at quite a few, but nothing is close to what I have. If anyone has advice or can link an old post that has symptoms similar to mine, I will gladly take the help.

Thanks,
Z.

After renewing my grounds from battery to chassis and battery to starter, the car wouldn’t turn on and our alternator went out. We just put in another alternator, a Duralast one from autozone and the car is able to run. Voltage on the battery is almost 14 as well as the alternator. Car still has jumpy tachometer (performance is not affected when tach is jumpy/bouncy) and still has a random misfire.
