A miss is just the engine missing a single power stroke. You feel it as a very small jerk backwards which usually repeats at irregular intervals.
Driving it more after reading this description It's definitely missing. I think at points it's also dropping down to 3 cylinders. [ thus my description of sputtering. ]
I disconnected the throttle position switch and drove it the problem didn't seem to go away at all. [why can I drive it like this? what does that switch do? ]
I didn't check the plugs, yet. I need to get the right plug socket.
