    Usually you hear it in the noise the engine makes. There's a "stutter" in the even engine note. Its often more noticeable at idle. Depending on the number of cylinders the engine has and how many are misfiring you will notice a slight juddering feeling as you drive along and often a lack of power when the accelerator is depressed. On a big multi cylinder engined car with automatic transmission, good sound deadening and antivibration engine mounts like mercedes it can be hard to detect. An good engine analyser will pick it no problem tho.
