Hi I have a 2007 Suzuki xl7 and is running when idlinidling and give me a code P0300 any idea why?

wow no engine stated in an engine post.

2.5/2.7 and my guess, 3.6 liter, 252 hp (188 kW) V6 ????

sure, that is random misfire. there vast causes,

each misfire is dejected by weak power from 1 or more cylinders.

in this case, many.

we find them by doing tests. with real tools. and meters.

in physics its just about 3. compression, spark or fueling bad.

300s means that all or most cylinders are misfiring, .

  1. never getting a tuneup is top reason now for 100 years. endless story of folks not doing service. for sure at 60k miles.

  2. bad spark. (opps see #1 )

  3. lean or too rich air /fueling ratios. flooding or bogging lean , you never stated driving issues, hows it drive?????

  4. EGR stuck open.,

  5. CEL LAMP stuck on ,driver ignoring it?

  6. Scan tool attached, and the mech fails to see lots of DTC errors, not just P0300.s ?

  7. bad oxy sensor, in such a way that cause, #3

  8. bad MAF sensor, not dead, just weak. or just needs cleaning.

  9. Any illegal air leaks to this engine will cause lean outs.

so any mech would use his scan tool and look and PIDs

live data.

is engine getting to 180F OR MORE and holds,(ECT PID)

is engine in closed loop at idle, yes/no,

if no, fix that first.

ok yes,

is LTFT near 0, or most run about -5% is it?

if LTFT is way off, or the car has over 100k miles, try 2 new oxygen sensors B1-S1 and B2, S1, to 2 top sensors, in gringo talk.

or in tech talk, both upstream sensors

my guess is its not the 02 oxy sensors. but is

A/F wrong

or bad spark

and #1 all time hit , is never ever tuned up..not in 7 long years.

Poor gas mileage

Check Oxygen sensors. There are 2 of them and not very costly. should be $20-25 each. But if oxygen sensors are bad, you should have 'Chek Engine' sign on. Do you get Check Engine Sign ?

O2 sensor, car miss firing, service engin soon light came on after fillingup

It would be kind-of nice to know what kind of vehicle we are talking about. It would also be nice to know WHAT ABOUT O2 sensor??? If the engine is misfiring, there are several things that can cause this. It could be anthing from a worn out spark plug, all the way to a cracked cylinder head and a whole bunch of other stuff in-between. The problem must be DIAGNOSED. The service engine soon light is trying to tell you that there is a problem and that you need to get your engine control system serviced! If the engine is misfiring, the Service Engine Soon light is SUPPOSED to be on!

Oxy Sensor

Makes 100% sense to me

I have a 1999 SL1 that I'm having a field day with. I installed a OEM cruise control on the car, took it to the dealer and had them program the PCM to see the cruise.

Cruise works flawlessly, but now I have a Service Engine Soon and Service Lights on all the time (Crank position sensor error and 1 cylinder missfire error) that the dealer cannot get to reset (Car runs perfectly) Dealer has worked on it 4 days so far (at their cost, not mine) they seem to be stumped. I love it!
