Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you.
P0300 is a multi-cylinder misfire. PO0305 and P0306 are cylinder 5 and 6 misfires.
There are two things to do to fix this:
1) if the spark plugs have 60,000 miles on them (or more) replace them with Genuine Toyota spark plugs. Do not use anything but Toyota plugs from a Toyota parts department. Non-Toyota plugs can and will give you P0300 codes.
2) If the plugs are new, and genuine Toyota (they are 'Nippondenso', actually, but ND plugs from the autoparts stores are different), replace the coils on #5 and #6 cylinders.
One of the other should cure the problem.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reply.
