Time for a tune up. If you have new spark plugs in now, remove them look for oil or gas (oil fouling means leaking rings,valve seals or guides. And gasfouling means bad coil) on them to find which cylinder isn't firing. Clean the plugs with a propane torch or media blaster, regap and reinstall them. Test coil and wires and replace any weak or bad ones. The plugs go through the valve covers and oil can leak by the rubber seal on top or the steel tube on the bottom and cause a missfire between wire and plug. New rubber seals are fairly cheap and you can remove the valve cover, clean and reseal the steel tubes with pure clear silicone bathroom caulking or a tube of black silicone gasket maker.

Has p0300 code misfire cyl 2 and 3


If it was just cylinder 2 or 3, the code would be 0302 or 0303. Instead, you have random misfires (probably) such that you should be checking things that affect the whole engine. Vacuum leaks, bad plug wires, bad coil(s) or ignition module are most likely, but even clogged exhaust, O2 sensors and bad battery can cause these problems. Yes, a battery can be good enough to start your car but still be bad enough to affect performance. If I had to guess, I would start by testing the ignition module. Most parts stores can test this if you remove it and carry it to them.
