Engine Light v6 flash out?

Hi guys long time, was at Pep Boys today for a tire rotation and oil change they checked my engine light which I kept forgetting to look in to the book to see and they said it was a cylinder was cutting out I forgot the terms he used, but the 6th one was back firing I think it was. Any ideas?? Thanks for your help

Number 6 cylinder is misfiring, ether a bad wire or a bad plug.

You could swap the wire with another one and see if the miss moves to the other cly.

sounds like you should take it somewhere or ask a fellow jeeper friend for some help with it. Its not hard to do but if you have no idea what to do it may seem difficult
