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.

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