The plug ends under the coils (three on HFM motors) will NOT set a code on a non OBDII car.

Any detected misfire will trigger fuel shut off on the offending cylinder. Restarting will reset the fuel untill another misfire is recognised. So a recognised misfire will perpetuiate itself. Not all misefires will be recognised so some can be felt and go away. Once they are recognized they stay until the key is cycled.
