    yes the engine light will come on with a misfire. the engine code will also tell you what cylinder had the misfire.

    82 Chevy or a late OBDII? Not every thing will detect a misfire.

    It will have to have a knock sensor to detect a misfire. A bad knock sensor will trigger a engine light.
