Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 2 years ago
with a code 300 the thing we have to know is if its all the cylinders misfiring or one or two specific cylinders to know which way to go with this issue
as so many things can cause a misfires
from vacuum leaks to crank sensors ect...

I took the car in to dealership, and they wanted to replace the cam due to low compression. This was a ripoff since the only measured compression on one cylinder. Told me the cam lobes had flat spots. Since it runs good on the road, I don't feel like the cam is an issue. It took them 3 days to give me the diagnoses.
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 2 years ago
can you perform a compression test on all 8 cylinders ?

I don't have a compression guage

135K miles on the car
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 2 years ago
ok the reason this issue has not been found yet is key important tests need to be like a compression test and then to see exactly which cylinders are showing a misfire to trigger the 300 code
if those 2 things are not done we will continue to guess at what the problem is

Hi there,
I would replace the Evaporative Purge Solenoid, especially since you also have a DTC for it.
Very common problem for GM.
The P0300 misfire will be all cylinders at random.
The dealer is partly right, but they are most certainly wrong claiming low compression if they tested only one cylinder. Why would they do that? You MUST remove all plugs to do a compression test. At that point you would test all 8 cylinders.
They are correct about the cam, it could have a problem.
Gen III onwards are fraught with roller lifter/camshaft failure.
Just replace the solenoid first, clear your DTCs, and hopefully that fixes your issue.
Have seen it way too many times.
