My 2006 Dodge Stratus is giving the code P 0300 (random misfire). Spark plugs have all been changed. Will it help to always let it warm up before driving, or what else can be done?

The P0300 code means that a cylinder(s) is misfiring or is randomly misfiring. Start by checking for intake leaks, intake gaskets are common caused of multi-cylinder misfiring. If no leak are found the next step is to replace the spark plugs. If the problem persist more tests needs to be done to diagnose problem, The control module monitors the crankshaft speed and has detected a misfire condition... Possible symptoms... - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light) - Lack/loss of power - Hard start - Engine hesitation P0300 Dodge Description... When a misfire occurs, engine speed will fluctuate. If the engine speed fluctuates enough to cause the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor signal to vary, the Engine Control Module (ECM) can determine that a misfire is occurring.
