You either have a cross up on the plug wires or its out of time.

What is causing the P0300 random misfire code on my 2001 Mitsubishi montero limited (not sport)?

misfires are for faulty electrics ---plugs, HT leads, distributor coils ECM but they are also from low fuel pressure , faulty injectors, faulty injector wiring
now you say at 5300 rpms is at the top end range so items to check are the fuel pressure ( should be at around 55-65 psi constant) fuel flow (filters , EVAP venting problem
Plugs with excessive gap, Low quality HT leads or faulty leads --excessive resistance is stopping spark at high pulses
ignition control module --failing at high cycles and coil or coils not good enough to handle the high cycles
If you have a distributor , then it may be worn bushes in the distributor that is initiating the misfire by not running true in the housing causing the rotor button to be missing spark for certain leads

Misfiring in cylinder 6 so i changed the plugs and now I'm looking at the fuel filter

have you checked the HT Lead? or if is the coil failure? Also check if there is not any fault on the previous - if the injector on that cylinder is working correct and not pouring the fuel.Since you removed the spark plugs have you checked if No:6 was wet or dry?

1999 Passat bogs under load and seems to be misfiring. Could it be the fuel filter or the ignition sensor and how do you test/replace?

very unlikely to be fuel filter. misfires on petrol engines are usual down to the ignition system,possibly Plugs or leads if fitted. plugs should be replaced every 40,000 miles, not an expensive item either.

Probably gunk or carbon build-up. See if Seafoam works for you, do a full engine treatment. You can find out how to do it on Youtube follow the links.
