Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. The P0300 misfire code, and the 1305/10/20/40 are usually attributed to coil issues. On this ignition system, all of the coils share a common ground circuit. The voltage in the coil is prevented from entering the ground circuit via a diode inside the coil. If any of the diodes are bad, they leak voltage into the ground circuit. This is also very common with older and especially non-factory coils. When voltage leaks into the ground circuit, you get coil codes. The problem is finding the bad one. If #2 coil has a faulty diode, there might be no number 2 coil code, but, cylinders 3, 4 and 5 could have coil codes because the computer is seeing the problem only after the #2 coil fires. If this vehicle was in our shop we would be switching coils around until we reduced the code count and then replace that particular coil.
