    Misfiring in spark-ignition engines can cause immediate damage to the catalyst and increase emissions since it brings unburned fuel and oxygen into the catalyst, resulting in an increase in temperature owing to subsequent combustion. Therefore, misfirings must be detected, as specified in the...
