I know this is an old post, but I am aware that a lot of people have similar problems.
I am having a misfire problem myself. I found that my head gasket had been leaking and the engine coolant had corroded my valve seats.
If you have this problem the two best things for you to start with is a compression test on the cylinders and a fuel pressure test. This is assuming you have had a tune up.

I have a 1999 Chevy Blazer 4.3 . It is running bad . I used an OBD II scanner and it pulled up a PO300 code which suggests a Laundry list of things that could be wrong . ...


p0300 should be multiple missfire. check for compression these engines tend to bend valves very easily if ran on old gas or a batch of bad gas. causing it to missfire in more than one cylinder. they also crack heads between valves if overheated.

My 1996 chevy 1500 has a missfire i have


Well, First i would have replaced all of the spark plugs and the wires, Then moved to the cap or rotor second, but in that case, did you check the spark plugs and wires, when was the last time they were changed? Maybe they were changed already and that's why you when straight to the distro? Is there a computer code for a misfire, or it feels like a misfire when it's running?

Could be plugged fuel filter, faulty fuel pressure regulator (check your pressure) and most probable is a sticky or dirty injector. Do check your timing as well.

My 96 honda accord is giving me three different code readings they are: P0303 cylinder 3 missfire, P0302 cylinder 2 missfire & P1300 multiple missfire detected, How do I fix this problem?


I would start with a full tune up. If it has never been done then that is the best way to start. Make sure that you gap your plugs. NGK plugs are the best for any and all Honda's. Let us know how it goes.

My 96 chevy blazer has a code ''random 4 misfire'' only misses when in park or idleing at a light. is this and injector issue?


my 96 blazer would have random missfires.... sometimes more than one cylinder at a time... there are a few things to try.... 96 vortecs still used distributor caps... but they had such a high intensity spark that they were well noted for frying distributor caps and ignition coils... i would start there... also a few times i had to replace the crankshaft timing sensor.... it could be something as small as a spark plug wire... i would start with the ignition before spending money to check the fuel system
