I inspected the vehicle and found there are no diagnostic trouble codes present. All monitors are complete and mode 6 data is not registering any misfires. I removed the spark plugs and performed a visual inspection on the secondary ignition components and found the number one spark plug and coil show signs of carbon tracking. Recommend performing a tune-up and replacing the number one ignition coil. I suggest replacing the remaining five ignition coils due to a high failure rate.
