Multiple Misfire Cause?

I turned on my car a few days ago, there was a hard start. The car would increase rpm then drop and eventually shut off.

I used the obdII and picked up codes for Misfire in different cylinders and multiple misfire.

Initially, since the weather here in NY has been freezing, I thought maybe water in fuel so I added Water Removal.

That did not work, and changed the spark plugs. I still get the same codes. Any ideas or solutions?

Thanks

Yes it can. But so are hundred other things. What specific codes are you getting?

Have you done the fuel filter update yet? Also noticed you did not mention changing the wires. What is your mileage?

Concentrate on things that affect all cylinders. It is unlikely that all coils/wires went bad overnight.

Fuel pressure? Delivery volume.
Fuel contamination. Diesel in tank.
Large vacuum leak.
Bad MAF.
Stuck open EGR valve.
Plugged up converters.

Do you have means of looking at live data stream?
