An engine misfire is a violent shaking of the engine with appropriate sound effects that happens when an engine cylinder in a combustion engine misses a stroke. This causes a 25% or more loss of power in comparison to the other cylinders thus throwing the engine off balance. It may either be caused by a loss of spark, if the air/fuel mixture is out of balance or loss of compressing.
