I would replace the spark plugs and more importantly the spark plug wires. It may be a bad plug wire with a break in it somewhere. It be so small that it only grounds the wire out when it gets warm due to expansion of the insulation around the wire.

I replaced head gaskets on 2004 dodge dakota. when started it ran rough and lacked acceleration. Code P0300 and o2 sensors showed. replaced all 4 O2 sensors, but still rough idle and code P0300


That's Random or multiple missfire code. Have you checked for proper fuel pressure? Improper fuel pressure will trigger this code if it's too low, thus causing a lean mixture in multiple cylinders.

These are misfire codes.This means that your vehicle is missing.The 300 is a random misfire and the 305 is for cylinder 5,and the 306 is for cylinder number 6.Check the plugs if they are good then you could have bad coils.They are top of the plugs.Hope this helps.Good luck.

My 01 passat with 1.8 is having random missfire's . first the check engine light came on and I had it read it said it was running leanon bank 1 , the mechanic told us it wasmost likely the mass air flow...


Running lean on bank 1... is your Oxygen Sensor, which is mounted on the exhaust system...Now as for the misfiring, pull out all of you coils, and check the coil and the boot, for white spots..It may have a short, and the electricity is jumping around, and causing it to misfire...

Code reader showes random misfire on cyl 1,3,5, have already changed the plugs


if the wrong spark plugs were used it could create a p0300 code. these cars call for ngk or nippon denso plugs. if i understand what you are telling me you have 4 related codes p0300(random missfire)p0301(cyl 1)p0303, and p0305. if this is the case then check your plugs again. if someone put in autolites to save money, throw them in the trash. they have a place, this is just not it. make sure your maintenance is up to date and the timing belt has been changed. it is recomended by hyundai at 60,000 miles.
