2005 Nissan frontier, P0300 code, multiple misfires I have

Customer Question

Customer: ***** *****, 2005 Nissan frontier, P0300 code, multiple misfires I have changes the plugs, and checked air filter, it only happens once the vehicle is warmed up
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: what would you like? once it warms up, the check engine light starts flashing, I plug in my code tester and reads "multiple misfire" in an effort to clear them I changed out plugs, and cleaned all coils and changed the air filter, next will be Mass AF sensor cleaning, once it warms up it flashes and looses power

good evening my name is ***** ***** I will assist

did you change any coils?? what were the codes for the cylinders????? was 300 the only code???


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
did not change the coils, and there was only the 300 code, indicated multiple misfires.
Expert:  Roy Belding replied 1 year ago.

ok, did you have the check engine light flashing???

do you have a scan tool that can read miss fire data??


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
there is no additional numbers listed, the only other thing that shows up on my odb reader is O2 sensor 2 error. the Service light will come on after warmed up and flash as long as you are trying to accelerate, it then goes steady once the vehicle is just at a maintained speed. Any additional gas applied will result in the light flashing again. No my CENTEC until does not show individual cylinder information.
I just ordered a new O2 sensor and will replace that tuesday / wed when it comes in
Expert:  Roy Belding replied 1 year ago.

ok, the sensor is not the source of the issue.

it sounds like there is a secondary break down and causing a miss fire. it sounds like a coil has failed. I would remove the coils and inspect the boots for any white marks along the boot. that would indicate electrical leakage and would eplain the miss fire under load.


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
nothing on the coils, no electrical burns or residue. Wondering if the drivers side cat is plugged up.
Expert:  Roy Belding replied 1 year ago.

I think your issue is still between the coils, plugs or injectors being clogged. if you had a plugged cat, you would have trouble with rpm being limited, no power.


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There is no power, I mentioned that as one of the symptoms, its a struggle to get above 50 and as soon as you try to it starts the flashing SEL. The lower cat was considerably warmer than the pipe behind the cat.
Expert:  Roy Belding replied 1 year ago.

ok, I would unbolt the cat and see if it is any better. that will allow the engine to breather better. that will alos tell us if the cat is clogged
