Hello, thanks for posting your questionThere are quite a few things that can cause this engine problem and the check engine light to turn on, the first thing a technician normally does is to connect a diagnostic code reader to the car's computer to see what trouble codes may be stored, this helps in diagnosing the problem and is a good starting point. Most autoparts stores like Autozone, Advance Auto, O'Reilly can help you with that and they charge nothing to do so. Would you be able to take the vehicle there and have the diagnostic codes read or do you have or know someone who has a code reader, you can also purchase an inexpensive code reader for around $50.00 or so even wal mart sells them, then you can get the codes yourself and besides it may come in handy again in the future. After retrieving the codes you can reply here again and I can help you figure this out.

I need your help for these sir, explanations, pictures, anything that can help me out.

Expert:  Ted Ritter replied 6 months ago.
Thanks for the updated information'the P0300 series codes are misfire codes, I will get some information together and then get back to you, I have a small favor to ask please look at the label under the hood and let me know which engine designation it is, it will be either 5SF-E or 2,AZ-FE I need to know which one it is, the diagnostic procedures are not the same.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
It is 1AZ-FE; sir, what about the other codes (P0100, P0110, AND P0115) are misfire too?
