A P0306 code means that the the ECM has detected that one of the engine's cylinders is not firing properly. In this case it's cylinder #6.

A code P0306 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

Faulty spark plug or wire, Faulty coil (pack), Faulty fuel injector, Burned exhaust Valve, Poor compression, and Defective computer. 

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 Caravan, 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). The number six cylinder is the one towards the radiator and drivers side. If you are going to change all the plugs and wire keep me posted, be glad to help. Good luck and hope this helps, P0300 just means multi miss fire.

How to fix 2002 BMW M3 service code 11360212. The code says solenoid valve for camshaft adjusting unit Permanent failure. What part needs to be replaced or repaired?


the problem will be in the unit that is attached to the end of the cam shaft that is driven by the timing belt/chain. It is hydraulically controlled by a solenoid that gets the signal from the ECM. Replacement of the unit by an accredited specialist will be the fix.
The unit changes the valve timing by advancing or retarding the cam shaft in accordance to engine RPM

Emission control check engine light


The codes indicate a cylinder misfire on cylinders 3 and 6. Seems to be a common problem with that model. I would call the dealer and ask if there are any recalls or technical service bulletins on your particular car. Could be fouled spark plugs or bad valves or bad valve adjustment. There may also be a software fix but since the car is noticeably running rough I would suspect a hardware problem. Good luck.

Something like that is sure wrong in #7. If you do a leak-down test, it should tell you if it is an intake or exhaust valve losing compression, or exactly what it is. A bent push rod would be a blessing. Then maybe you wouldn't have to take the head off for repairs. Roll a push rod over a glass surface to check for straightness.

What is a p0300 code


I found on line that the p300 coad is a random missfire in all cylinders and that the last number in a p300 code is the cylinder that is misfiring. Your p302 & p303 would be #2&3 cylinders.
