Can low engine oil cause misfire?
I was driving my car when a warning light came on signaling that my oil pressure was low. Shortly after, my engine stumbled and misfired. I am wondering if the misfire was caused by my low engine oil or if the two are unrelated. Can low engine oil cause a misfire?
- Your oil filter is damaged, reducing oil flow, causing improper valve timing, and resulting in a misfire.
- Decreased oil flow has worn down your engine parts, causing a misfire.
- Low oil pressure has caused your engine to run out of fuel, dropping the RPMs and causing a misfire.
