The carb must be flooding.
change oil
clean air filter
clean carbs
make sure all the carb hoses are in their original locations. before removing the tank take some notes or photos or number them with correction fluid.
dont leave the fuel tap in the P position, this is for priming the carbs only

Engine codes pcm p0300, 301,302,303

p0300 is Multiple misfire on all cylinders , this could be a spark, running lean due to low fuel pressure or air leak or mechanical issue.
First of all check for any air leaks on motor. P0301 is missfire on Cylinder 1 hence the 1 on the end of 301 , 302 is cylinder 2 and so on. Cheers

I would check the fuel pressure sounds like it could be low when there is a power load put on it.

Low end miss fire and no horsepower

If it really is a miss-fire, you should have a check engine light on and codes for the cylinders.
I would check for that and check the fuel pressure.
You did replace the fuel filter with the pump, right ?

Engine missfire codes compression low

I shudder every time I see the "new engine solution" to a problem ( unkess I read that there was no oil and the engine will not turn over)
you have to know the copmression pressures before you can decide if that is the real reason for the misfires
the compression readings can be as low as 120psi ( down from 165psi for a good engine) and then both a dry and wet test done to confirm engine condition requiring a "new " engine
compression figures can vary 10% between cylinders before it is considered necessary to do something
so move on to other problems
random misfires (code p 0300) can be electronic which is coils , ignition control modules , distributor cap , HT leads , plugs , injector /s wiring and ECM or it can be from faulty injectors( dirty ) low fuel pressure , mechnaical ( loose valve seat inserts
from your description and you obviously are not convinced by the new engine arguement I would be taking it to anoher accredited service center conversant with your make and have them run the fault codes again, check the fuel pressure , and the cat converter for failure and blocking the exhaust
just some ideas to start with

Hi i have a sunfire 1997 recebtly my car started to missfire his idle stay beetween 500 and 1000 when step on breaks and it wants to shut down i have change spiplug crank censor map censor and the coil...

Have you changed the spark plug wires? This is the most common cause of a misfire. After changing the wires, I would then have the Timing checked and a new timing belt installed. If this doesn't fix the problem, you may have a Crankshaft Position Sensor or Camshaft Position Sensor failing. If this doesn't fix the problem, have your fuel pressure tested.

Code reads multi cylinder misfire

PO300 mu;ti cyclinder misfire can be many things Low fuel pressure or clogged fuel filter. Worn sparkplugs, need of major tuneup. If the car doesn't run bad conpared to last week when it did'nt have the missfire it may have missed just long enough to set the code. Engine starting cold and the valves and other engine parts not warming up fast enough not to stumble. The oil change being overdue can make this happen.. If it seems to run as good as anyways and basic maintanice is up to date reset the computer ( clear codes). Drive the car and try to see when and if the light comes on. Running real low on fuel, and running real short rips can cause fuel build up in the oil that can make it stumble as the engine oil does come to operating temperture.

I have 1200 bandit with fuel getting into oil

Check the Compression in all 4 cylinders, if the compression is low on one cylinder, squirt some oil or or WD40 down the bore and immediately recheck the compression. If the pressure goes up a fair bit you have a broken ring, if not you could have a burnt valve. If your getting fuel in the oil it definately sounds like a ring problem

Cylinder 5 missfire 1999 tahoe

How is the pressure in the fuel rail? a low pressure will cause erratic firing of the injectors - the further down the rail u get usually the worse the problem. If the fuel filter was not changed regularly or if the vehicle stood for a while, dirty fuel/standing fuel at some time in the recent past, this **** will accumulate in tyhe injectors. To avoid spending a loada cash, swap a few injectors around and see if the problem moves with the injector.
