Expert:  Chris replied 1 year ago.

The P0302 is a cylinder # ***** misfire. This could very well be the plug wires. I see issues with those wires a lot, and always recommend replacing the wires and plugs as a set. So I recommend you do that next. There is a good chance that this will take care of it.

Let me know if you get the wires replaced and if that helped,
