Could be bad coil packs. Best bet....take it in and have it checked out.'s not cheap, but it takes away the guess work.

I had a similar issue last year when I had to jump start my jag. I didn't do it properly and blew out one side of the engines coil packs and everything you can imagine was showing up. Luckily, it was covered under warranty but at least I didn't mess around for days/weeks trying to figure it out on my own.

Trouble code p0300 from o rilly's on LS V8 D.3L VIN T 323CI F1 MFI GAS OHV

A P0300 code is set when cylinder number three is misfiring. On this case the check engine light will probably be flashing when you are driving the vehicle. I would suspect that the wire to that cylinder is not on properly.

What are the signs of a bad fuel filter on a 2001 buick century

Hey Keith, you have all the signs of a blocked/restricted fuel filer. Will also struggle, especially going up hills if there is a missfire. Missfire will usually turn on engine light but sometimes not. If light is on and you have the system scanned it will tell you which cylinder to check. Mis fire codes usually plug,coil, or coil pack. I would try filter first if never changed.

Air conditioning/Check Engine light in 2001 Ford Windstar

A vacuum leak is a normal thing to run across on a windstar the plenum (upper intake ) gaskets are rubber and usually end up having to be replaced. A good indicator is usually missing on one cylinder and a tune up has been done and the coil works fine. You may run around town and find a parts store that will scan your check engine light for free and look for a p0301-06 code, a p0300 is a random miss. First things first scan for you code.

Check engine light came on and was blinking... the car was vibrating/pulsating and had a delayed acceleration.. turned car off and then back on and it seemed to help but check engine light remained on, but...

A blinking check engine light indicates one or more cylinders is currently missfiring. You will have to scan the computer and get the code to determine which cylinder it was. Then you can start you diagnostics to figure out why it was missfiring.

2001 Kia Magentis engine missfiring , installed

check new spark plugs for proper gap.
It may have gotten hit when installing it.check coils second for resistance/firing. sometimes one bank will work fine and the other side will misfire-always replace all together or as a unit. Check
engine for compression if problem pre existed
and check for low compression. if 1 cylinder
has 120 psi and two havepsi below 90 you may have
a cracked head or bad head gasket.

2005 chevy silverado v8, some hesitation, rough idling, ses light on and sometimes flashes. black smoke when reving the engine.

Black smoke could mean it is running rich, have a scan done, it is probably an engine misfire code and it will tell you which cylinder is misfiring. the last digit is the cylinder, unless it says random missfire, It may be time for a good tune up and don't forget the fuel injection system, Clean out the intake and do an induction cleaning on the injectors.
