I believe you got the P0301 - misfire cylinder 1

FYI P0302-304 are the codes for misfires for each cylinder.

It can be any of these

1. Faulty plug or wire
2. Faulty coil pack
3. Faulty o2 sensors
4. Faulty fuel injectors
5. Burned exhaust valve
6. Faulty Cat
7. Poor compression
8. Defective computer

You dont want the last 2 to happen to you trust me.
