P0300 is a general misfire code...http://www.engine- codes.com/P0300.html....P0316 is related....http://www.engine- codes.com/P0316.html...Change your spark plugs first if you haven't already, and check for vacuum leaks. If the symptoms persist, then change the crank shaft position sensor. If you don't feel comfortable doing this have your mechanic diagnose the issue for you and repair.

    Can adding a can of Heet cause the Service Engine light to come on? I was told that the O2 sensor was slow to respond. Do I still need to replace the sensor? This one has 106,000 miles on it.
