      Sean T. is the new TSOC President!   03/27/16

      As some of you may know, I started this forum back in 2010 in response to TCCA being sold to AutoGuide. I originally made this forum and called it the Taurus Club of Michigan (or something like that) purely as a joke, except a bunch of members from TCCA started joining. We eventually changed the name to the Taurus and Sable Owners Club, and we instantly started getting tons of signups from TCCA members in search of a new forum to join.  I only had my Taurus for about 6 months, and have moved on to the Mopar side. After 6 years, it seems weird for me to be president of TSOC. So as of today, I am 'stepping down' as President of the club and hereby hand the title of TSOC President to Sean T! I would say that most of you already know who he is, and I think he will do a great job as TSOC President. I will remain an admin of the forum and will continue to manage the server and forum software. Sean will be taking over all other responsibilities, including being in charge of the TSOC donations and money management. I will continue to pay for domain renewals, forum license renewals, and any other forum expenses, with Seans approval. Everybody please welcome Sean as the new President!

Dtc Po300

9 posts in this topic

hey guy i have this po300 misfire code that keeps coming back every couple of weeks or so the vulcan runs good ,i had this code along with a po316 which was part of a tsb for reflashing the ecu which i did about 2 weeks ago but now i only have this po300 code

i checked the normal things ,she is running well plenty of power ...im just not sure what to check ,plugs and wires are as old as the car is , the fuel pump is about a yr or so old , i use 89 octane fuel since i had it ,( about 3 yrs now ) just not sure what the next step is ,i had the fuel injectors cleaned about a mounth ago ,she is in top shape ,no maint needed at this time ,she only has about 52k on the clock ..........any ideas would be great .....now i have noticed that when this light comes on she is sitting out ,and fuel level is below a qtr tank .....and im using remote start .......she is normally in a garage and full would that cause a po300 code ? i cleared the code with no repairs yesterday to see what happens

Even with only 52k, the ignition system has seen 6 years of PA winters. P0300 is a generic misfire code. Remove the coil pack and check for hairline cracks in the plastic. Check all plug wire connections. Look for spark tracking on the plugs and inside the coil pack terminals.

we had to replace the plugs on my moms 07 with about 60k on it the gaps were way out of spec. it was not misfiring though.

as Spridget said check the wires and the coil pack. it is possible that it is tracking. cold weather does not help either

on an '05, check what I call, the "resonance flap" on the back of the intake manifold on the side of the belts and accesories. it has a single plug on it ans is held in by 2 screws. There is a rubber gasket there, which usually starts to leak badly, giving the random P0300 code(s). I sprayed some starting fluid on the gasket mating area with the car running and immediately noticed change in engine behavior. I replaced this and the car has improved, but I still have a leak somewhere.

Have you replaced the o ring on the variable valve actuator on the back side of the UIM. Common vacuum leak point.
