you have to read out the codes. po300 is misfire detected. maybe a coil or injector. could also be intake leak

you may have to drive it several days for the light to go off, or have the codes cleared. personally I would just drive it. if the computer tests it, and it passes the test, it will go off on its own.

When the light comes on without flashing, it just means an emissions problem, when it starts to flash it has become more serious. I suspect that there was an error putting the plugs and or wires. That computer can determine if there is a misfire and it will put out a P040X, code where X represents which cylinder is the problem. This will help you not have to take each one apart. If there are more than one, check each number.
Ex. P0401 means there is misfire on cylinder number 1
P0400 is a random misfire detected.
If you take it to an Advance or Autozone they will usually scan if for free.
By the way, if you used cheap plugs instead of platinum plugs that could do it too.
Hope this helps.

You need to get the fault codes read to determine where the problem is that set the SES light. Autozone will scan your car at no charge. At some point you will need to get a mechanic involved to further diagnose the codes.
