Customer Question

I keep getting a P0300 pd error code that keeps making the engine light come back on. I barely make ends meet every month. i am trying to get this fixed so i can pass my emissions test. It passed all the tests but this error code causing my engine light to come on is an automatic fail. I changed the spark plugs and code was gone but came back next day. i need it to pass so i et tags. any suggestions on a fix?

2002 Cavalier with 136k but the engine was switched out after about 90k because of a blown header. engine is a 4cyl 2.2l. Limited funds so only thing tried was to replace spark plugs. the car isnt great so I dont want to spend a lot of money but it is my only transportation. i know the catalytic converter passed emissions so i didnt think that would be it. the car isnt probably worth that much so i dont want to and cant afford to spend hundreds to troubleshoot this error code. I was hoping to gain some insight on the most likely causes. Thank you for taking the time.
