If your comment is misfire in cylinders 1 and 6, then there's likely an issue with the coils...but still check the intake boot for tears. And clean your MAF sensor. And your idle control valve.

Providing that you can feel the misfire, does the issue go away when you're off idle?
Hi Sam. Thanks for the reply. Actually, what they told me at AutoZone was that all the cylinders were misfiring. It's weird and I think as you and WhiteKnuckles have suggested, I will check the intake boots for any damage. This will probably be an easy fix if this is in fact the problem. I'll post back here tomorrow with my findings.

Thanks, Sam.
