There are so many things that could cause a misfire in one of the cylinders, it won't do you any good to just throw a few guesses at you unless you would want to try things to fix it. Since it's going to the dealer, hopefully they will find the fault and fix it under warranty.

If you are experiencing a true misfire then your car will be posting an error code. Do the key dance and see if it pulls up any codes!
