Depends on how many were wrong. If all of them then it wont. But if it's only 2 then it'll be lumpy, but may still turn over.

what car?

some dispacks fire 2 at the same time, so if you have those opposite it will still run fine.
a car will run on 3 cyl, if its on 2 cyl it will usually fire then cut out.

Usually it'll run yeah with 2 wrong.
Ive drove my old engine when it was missing on 2 cylinders(damaged leads)
and it ran/drove
Just very poorly.

If all four were wrong, it wouldn't run.
