Had problem with check engine light, happened once before. Only three cylinders firing, reset computer and was fine. Happened again, any ideas what could be causing this to happen. Sensor? Emmisions control? Fuel issue? PCV? PLEASE HELP! Also, how long can you drive the car slowly in this situation?

could be a large number of problems, from sparkers to coil packs to any number of things.

best bet get it to a specialist to see if they can find the problem, what part of the country are you in?
