What is code p0300?


P0300 - Random, Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected Fault Code Definition
  • Random, Multiple Misfire Detected
Symptoms
  • Check Engine Light flashing
  • Rough running, hesitation, and/or jerking when accelerating
  • In some cases, there may be performance problems, such as dying at stop signs or rough idling, hesitation, misfires or lack of power (especially during acceleration), and a decrease in fuel economy
Common Problems That Trigger theP0300
  • Worn out spark plugs, ignition wires, coil(s), distributor cap and rotor (when applicable)
  • Incorrect ignition timing
  • Vacuum leak(s)
  • Low or weak fuel pressure
  • Improperly functioning EGR system
  • Defective Mass Air Flow Sensor
  • Defective Crankshaft and/or Camshaft Sensor
  • Defective Throttle Position Sensor
  • Mechanical engine problems (i.e.-low compression, leaking head gasket(s), or valve problems

1995 4.3 MISSING WHEN WARMED UP


Is the check engine light on? An OBD II code P0300 - Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected could indicate a bad crank position sensor causing a misfire. Another possibilty would be the coil or distributor cap. The 95 and 96 were notorious for burning distributor caps. My 96 used to burn one once a month which is why Chevrolet stopped using them and went to multiple coils. More information would be helpful in diagnosing the problem

Check Engine Light


have you ever changed the plugs,wires, rotor, distributor cap?it just may need a tune up. check under the cap for any signs of electrical corrosion or cracks or moisture, when was the last time the engine oil was changed? sludge in a engine will also trigger codes which will give you a check engine light even something as simple as a loose gas cap or a worn gasket on the gas cap will trigger a code

P0300 diagnostic code for a chryles sebring lxi coupe 3.0l v6


Hi.

P0300 is random misfire, and can be caused by a number of problem. First check if there are more codes stored in the PCM.

If you have only P0300, check spark plugs, distributor (depending on year distribution coils) and high voltage wires from distributor to spark plugs. Those are the most common cause for random misfire.

If distribution is OK, check for ignition problems. A too rich or too lean mixture can result in misfire. Often the problem is not reported by the PCM with a lean or rich code based on the O2 sensors' input.
Check fuel system, injectors, filter and sensors in air intake and air intake itself, vacuum system etc.

Check with particular attention the EGR system, that is a common fault resulting in random misfire. Chrysler Sebring built in the second half of the 90s are commonly suffering from EGR problems (there are several Chrysler service bulletins on this).

P0300 is often accompanied by symptoms such as engine running rough or shutting down. There are more faults, apart the ones listed that can result in P0300.

Regards.

Ginko.

2005 Chrysler Sebring - engine stumbles and won't excel. and has the engine codes P0016, P0300, P0339


I wasn't able to find out the first engine code, but the other one is a multiple or random misfire. and crankshaft position sensor a circuit. If the car has a distributor you could tried replacing the cap rotor and also wires first. Next you would look at the crankshaft position sensor try unplugging and plugging it back in. Look at the connection and wires to make sure they look OK. If you do not know how to test this you could also just replace the sensor. Good luck.

1999 Nisian Maxima and need to know what codes mean?

P0300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected
The misfire detection monitor, a software strategy built into the computer, is designed to detect an engine misfire. The computer can also normally identify the specific cylinder in which the misfire has occurred. A misfire is nothing more than a lack of combustion, which can be caused by poor fuel quality or metering, low compression, lack of spark or unmetered air entering the engine. There are other possible, less obvious causes as well, such as uncommanded Exhaust Gas Recirculatin (EGR), flow. When the misfire monitor detects a misfire, it will trigger the check engine light with the specific cylinder number as the last digit in the P030X code. For instance cylinder 1 misfire is P0301, cylinder 2 is P0302 etc. In this case we have either multiple cylinders misfiring, or the computer simply can't determine the specific cylinder, and as such we are left with the P0300 in computer memory.
Possible Causes:
Fuel injectors, related wiring, sensors and computer issues
Running out of gas, or poor fuel quality
Evaporative emissions system (EVAP) concerns: fuel vapors leaking into engine
Incorrect fuel pressure

EGR system concerns: leaking EGR valve or restricted ports
Base engine concerns: low compression, valve train problems and timing issues
Ignition system concerns including, but not limited to:
Faulty spark plugs
Faulty coil or related wiring
Ignition module or related wiring issues
Ignition related sensor faults or wiring issues
