SOURCE: code p0300

Basically this means that the car's computer has detected that not all of the engine's cylinders are firing properly.
A P0300 OBD DTC code indicates a random or multiple misfire. If the last digit is a number other than zero, it corresponds to the cylinder number that is misfiring. A P0302 code, for example, would tell you cylinder number two is misfiring. Unfortunately, a P0300 doesn't tell you specifically which cylinder(s) is/are mis-firing, nor why.

A code P0300 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • Faulty spark plugs or wires
  • Faulty coil (pack)
  • Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
  • Faulty fuel injector(s)
  • Burned exhaust valve
  • Faulty catalytic converter(s)
  • Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages
  • Faulty camshaft position sensor
  • Defective computer

If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.
If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.
Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold or unmetered air gettingpast the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.

SOURCE: code p0300 and p1406

P0300 is misfire and p1406 is EGR. It sounds like you have a chunk of carbon stuck in the EGR valve. Remove the valve and clean the carbon from the valve, bottom side. Then install a screened gasket so it won't happen again.

SOURCE: 2001 audi a4 1.8 random misfire

Have you changed the coils at each misfing cylinder? I had a misfire on cylinder 3, running really rough with flashing check engine light when engine was warm. The Check Engine light did come on solid after the misfire cleared. Swapped the coil with another cylinder and the misfire code followed the coil, so I replaced the suspect coil with a known good one. Voila, problem solved. My vehicle is a 2001 Jetta 1.8t, and from what I've read on the internet, failing coils is a very common problem. Good luck.

SOURCE: obd2 code p0300 on mazda protege 2002

Just had one of these with a maxima, the code is multiple random misfire, when a misfire occurs, to start is do the basics, replace the plugs, check fuel pressure, clean throttle body, and coolant is topped up. also I have seen if the O2 sensor is not working correctly is can cause a misfire, you will need a scan tool to look at what the O2 sensor is doing, o rby back probing the sensor (don't damage the O2 sensor wires). If it wires replace them as well, if it has coils they usually dont give that code if one fails, it will pinpoint that a certain coil if one fals.

2000 saab 9-5 missing really bad starts well just missing code that was read is P0300 please any help?


Hi there,

A P0300 diagnostic code indicates a "random" or "multiple" misfire.


Unfortunately, P0300 doesn't tell you specifically which cylinders are mis-firing, nor why (code P0301 would indicate cylinder #1; P0302 would indicate cylinder # 2 etc). This means there could be an issue with any number of components/circuits relating to the ignition/combustion circuits.


I would recommend you check for the following:

  • Faulty spark plugs and/or HT leads
  • Faulty coil (pack)
  • Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
  • Faulty fuel injector(s)
  • Burned exhaust valve
  • Faulty catalytic converter
  • Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages
  • Faulty camshaft position sensor

Sometimes the underlying cause of a random misfire is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold, unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or even an EGR valve which is stuck open.



Hope this helps...

My 1999 saab 95 has been dying while driving the past 2 days. i can pull the P1300, P1549, P0300 codes with a obdii reader. where do i start with fixing this problem


p1300 and p0300 Inspect the wiring, DI cassette, and the spark plugs are clean and making good contact. p1549 Check the charge air system and the air flow through the Turbo boost pressure control valve. These are relative the code you received.
