P0300 Random misfire-normally caused by vacuum leak or bad fuel

Engine misfiring can be caused by worn or fouled spark plugs, a weak spark (weak coil, bad spark plug wire), loss of compression, vacuum leaks, anything that causes an unusually lean fuel mixture (lean misfire), an EGR valve that is stuck open, dirty fuel injectors, low fuel pressure, or even bad fuel.

P0300 Chevy Malibu

P0300 is one of the most common OBDII codes that occurs in the Chevy Malibu. It stands for:

P0300: Random Multiple Misfire Detected

P0300 is certainly a cause for concern, and can be a threat to the drivability the Chevy Malibu.

It will often be accompanied by codes P0301-P0308. These particular codes also indicate that there is a misfire detected, but they specify the specific cylinder. If you have P0300 and one of these other codes, the cylinder indicated by the cylinder specific codes would be where to start looking for your problem.


Chevy Malibu P0300 Definition

P0300 is a general and random misfire code, which means that the code is not going to tell you which cylinder is causing the misfire. Something is causing cylinders to misfire at random, which is a lot less cut and dry than a cylinder specific misfire code.

P0300 OBDII Code Diagnosis Chevy Malibu

  • The P0300 Chevy trouble code will trigger the Malibu’s service engine soon light.
  • The vehicle itself may begin to run rough. It depends on how serious the misfire is.
  • The vehicle may produce excess vibration, espescially at lower RPM


P0300 Trouble Code Diagnosis- Chevy Malibu

There are quite a few things that can cause the P0300 trouble code to trigger the Chevy Malibu . Here are the most common problems that will throw the code. They are presented somewhat in order from most to least likely to be causing the code:


  • Low Fuel Pressure– If there isn’t enough fuel getting to the engine, this will cause combustion to be less than optimal. Diagnosing low fuel pressure can be tricky. Typically, if you do have low fuel pressure, the vehicle will act fine when it doesn’t need a lot of fuel. But, it’ll sputter and act like it’s going to die at speed or under heavy acceleration. Here’s some information on how to tell if you have a bad fuel filter.
  • Vacuum leak– If your Malibu has a vacuum leak, it can be very difficult for it to get the right air/fuel mixture. This will cause the cylinders to misfire and it’ll throw the P0300. Also, since a vacuum leak almost always affects each cylinder the same, you’ll typically get P0300 with it and not any cylinder specific misfire codes. Here’s a great article from Popular Mechanics on how to detect a vacuum leak. It’s easy (and kind of fun) to chase one down. Popular Mechanics: How to find a vacuum leak.
  • EGR Problems– If the EGR system is not able to recycle the engine gasses right, it’ll throw P0300.
  • Ignition Problems– Bad plug wires (if equipped), bad coil packs, and spark plugs can cause misfires to occur. This isn’t higher on the list because typically you’ll get a misfire in one cylinder specifically, and not a P0300 only. If you got a P302 or something similar with the P0300, it may be a good idea to check and see if there is any damage or failure from your ignition components. Here’s how to test a coil pack, how to tell if a spark plug is bad (video), and how to test plug wires (video).
  • Cam or Crank Sensors– This one is very unlikely, but it does happen. If the ECU is not getting the right signal from these sensors, the vehicles timing is not going to sync up and it’ll misfire.
  • Low Compression– If you have a leaking head gasket, bent valve, cracked head, etc.. that would cause compression to not be as high as it should, you’re going to get P0300. You should also feel the vehicle is down on power as well.


Most Common P0300 Fixes

A lot of the time, P0300 is going to be fixed by something obvious, such as an EGR leak. When it’s not glaringly obvious what is wrong, a tune up is a great place to start.

Replacing the spark plugs, coil packs, and plug wires is not typically difficult or costly.

Is P0300 a Serious Concern?

P0300 is cause for concern and left unfixed can get worse. Fixing the problem causing the code to fire can save you time and money and keep your Chevy from breaking down.


Chevy Malibu P0300 Diagnosis

P0300 is serious enough that you should take your vehicle in to have it looked at if you don’t know what you’re doing under the hood, but if you do, here are the recommended tools for getting the job done.

We have been seeing quite a few problems with the GM 2.2L and 2.4L engines. Mostly on model years 2005 through 2009. This engine is very common in the Chevrolet Malibu, Cobalt and HHR. As well as the Pontiac G5 and G6. This is the 4 cylinder.  The problem I am going to talk about today is a check engine light and misfire codes.

Car maintenance can be a difficult task but luckily you can find the parts you need online for almost any repair job.

Check Engine Light

Now, there are many, many things that can cause an SES light. Anything from a loose gas cap to any number of failed sensors. But this particular problem is with a computer trouble code P0300. This is a general engine misfire. For a particular cylinder, the code would be P0301, P0302, P0303 or P0304, as the last number refers to which cylinder is misfiring. On a scan tool we can actually watch the cylinder misfire. This problem can be caused by a faulty spark plug, malfunctioning ignition coil or ignition module, a plugged or restricted fuel injector or an internal mechanical problem.

Engine Misfire

The problem we are seeing with this engine is the misfire on a warmed up motor, only at idle. If you press the gas pedal just a little, the fault goes away. There is also no problem at higher speeds or steady driving or accelerating. Normally we mechanics would first look for a vacuum leak. This would cause the problem at idle any any motor. When no vacuum leak is found, the ignition and fuel system components are tested and shown to be working properly, then the next step is to look into an internal mechanical fault.(See Pictures Below)

There are a few test that can be performed to test the overall health of the engine. First would be a cylinder compression check. That is done by removing the spark plugs, disabling the fuel injector and ignition systems, and cranking the motor over with the tool installed. We watch the gauge for several things. First, how high the pressure jumps on the first revolution, and then what is the highest reading after a few seconds of cranking. Cylinders are compared to each other looking at both these readings. This will show the difference, if any, of compression between cylinders. That can give an indication as to what cylinder to concentrate on. But since we are using a scan tool to watch live data stream, we know which to look closely at. A compression test can be a little misleading. Low total compression can be caused by worn pistonrings, incorrect valve timing, or valve and seat problems. Depending on the condition, this test may not show any abnormal readings.

Compression Test

In this case, the compression on one cylinder is a little low. Squirting a little motor oil in the cylinder and running the test again shows no improvement. If it had, we would suspect worn piston rings, as the oil would have helped seal up the piston rings and raised the compression, which is not what is happening in this case.

So the next test on this 2.2L or 2.4L, which is much more comprehensive, in what is called a cylinder leak down test. This is a little more involved. This entails removing the valve cover, loosening the camshafts (this is an overhead cam engine) and removing the rocker arms (also called followers)  to let the intake and exhaust valves come all the way up and seal the combustion chamber.

The the tools is installed to pressurise each cylinder with a regulated amount. What we do is look for a percentage of leaking of this pressure. A certain percentage of loss means there is a problem. So now we have to find what is leaking. Listening in several different places is what is needed to locate the bad part. Opening the throttle to listen for the leak in the intake side. Listening in the exhaust pipe will show a problem on the exhaust side. Either way, the cylinder head must be removed.

After removal, the valves and valve seats are inspected. A great test to find where the leak is, is to turn the head over and fill the combustion chamber with water, or even better, washer fluid. The blue color makes it easier to spot the leaking valve and or seat. See Pictures below.

2.2L and 2.4L Engine Cylinder Head With Leaking Valves Leaking 2.2L and 2.4L engine valves causing check engine light P0300.

The fluid is leaking past the exhaust valve seats and into the exhaust port. This is causing a sort of vacuum leak inside that cylinder. More specifically a lean condition. This is why there is a misfire at idle. Above idle, at faster engine RPM, there is no time for the cylinder to leak, so no engine misfire. The repair for this particular engine misfire is to replace the cylinder head and bad valves. This aluminum head is  not repairable, so replacement is required.

Again, this problem is specific to the 2005 through 2009 2.2L and 2.4L. So if you are having an SES light and misfire or rough idle, be sure your mechanic does a thorough inspection and diagnosis to avoid guessing and replacing parts. A simple tune up or sensor is not going to fix this one.

Chevrolet P0300 – Meaning, Causes, Symptoms, & Fixes

Chevrolet Code P0300 Definition

Random/Multiple cylinder misfire detected.

What Does Chevrolet P0300 Mean?

Chevrolet code P0300 indicates that one or more cylinders are experiencing misfires. A misfire occurs when an insufficient amount of fuel is burning in a cylinder. The efficient burning of fuel is essential to engine operation as the combustion of fuel is what provides the energy to power the engine in your Chevrolet. A misfire from one or more cylinders can be caused by many reasons from a faulty ignition system, fuel system or internal engine failure. When P0300 occurs it should be fixed immediately as long term driving with engine misfires could cause consequential damage to the engine in your Chevrolet.  Many times P0300 occurs when there are worn out spark plugs, spark plug wires, or a faulty ignition coil.

Chevrolet P0300 Symptoms

  • Check Engine Light is on
  • Check Engine Light flashing
  • Engine runs rough and shaking
  • Lack of power from the engine
  • Fuel smell from the exhaust
  • Hesitations/Jerking when accelerating

Chevrolet P0300 Causes

(* = Most Common)

  • Faulty or worn spark plugs *
  • Faulty spark plug wires or coils *
  • Distributor failure *
  • Faulty fuel injector *
  • Vacuum leak
  • Low fuel pressure
  • Camshaft sensor defective
  • Crankshaft sensor defective
  • Engine timing off
  • Leaking head gasket
  • Low engine compression
  • Poor quality fuel

Chevrolet Code P0300 Severity – Severe

Chevrolet code P0300 should be repaired immediately. Ignoring this error could result in ignition failure, catalytic converter damage, and unsafe/dangerous conditions while operating your Chevrolet.

Chevrolet Code P0300 Common Diagnosis Mistakes

Loose fitting electrical connectors and broken or disconnected vacuum hoses are often overlooked.

Chevrolet Code P0300 Diagnosis Steps

Tools Needed to Diagnose:

  • Tools You May Already Have:
  • Tools You May Need (FIXD’s Top Picks From Amazon):
    • FIXD
    • Digital multimeter
    • 5/8in. Spark Plug Socket
    • Ratchet, sockets, and extensions
    • Fuel pressure gauge
    • Compression tester
    • Leakdown tester
    • Spark plugs
    • Spark plug wires

How To Diagnose Chevrolet Code P0300

  1. Use FIXD to scan your Chevrolet to verify P0300 is the only code present. If other codes are present, they must be addressed first.
  2. Check for loose connectors at the ignition coils or for damaged wiring. Look for loose engine ground wires as well. These can cause random misfire conditions. Tighten or connect where necessary.
  3. Check the condition of your spark plugs and spark plug wires. Worn and old spark plug wires are common causes of random misfires. Replace spark plugs and wires if needed and recheck for misfires.
  4. If you have determined that your ignition system is operating correctly, there may be a problem within your fuel system that is causing the random misfires. The following should be checked to ensure the engine is getting the proper amount of fuel:
    • Check fuel pressure. Low fuel pressure can cause intermittent misfires on multiple cylinders. When the pressure is below the specification, the engine does not receive the proper amount of fuel and will start to lean misfire. The fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator could be the source of the low fuel pressure.
    • Check that the fuel injectors are functioning properly and activating. Random misfires can be a sign of faulty or clogged fuel injectors that need to be replaced. Also check that the fuel injector wiring is not damaged and is connected properly.
  5. If the ignition system and fuel system checks out you may want to perform an engine compression test and leakdown test to see if there are any mechanical problems causing your misfire. Some common mechanical problems that cause misfire can be:
    • Broken valve spring
    • Broken piston ring
    • Worn valve guides
    • Burned valve
    • Timing chain or belt skipped tooth and engine is off time.

|P0300 CHEVROLET code description

The Engine Control Module (ECM) uses information from the crankshaft position sensor and the camshaft position sensor to determine when an engine cylinder misfire is occurring. By monitoring variations in the crankshaft rotation speed for each cylinder, the ECM can detect individual cylinder misfire events.
Extreme cylinder misfire events can cause catalytic converter damage. The malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) will flash when the conditions for catalytic converter damage are present. The Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) P0301 through P0306 (or P0301 through P0308) correspond to cylinders 1 through 6 (or 1 through 8). When the ECM detects that one or more specific cylinders are misfiring, the DTC for the respective misfiring cylinder will set, and up to 2 of the corresponding fuel injectors are disabled for a minimum of 30 s. The ECM will then re-enable the fuel injector and, after approximately 200 engine revolutions, will determine if the misfire is still present. If the misfire is still present, the ECM will disable the fuel injector again repeating the process. If the misfire is not present, the fuel injector will remain enabled by the ECM. In Spark Ignition Direct Injection (SIDI) system applications, if a fuel injector fault DTC is set during a misfire event, the ECM will not re-enable the injector.
