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.

When a misfire occurs, engine speed will fluctuate.
