Question
HI Calvin, I have a 04 maxima sl that"s been giving me a code of p300 random misfire. According to the technician at nissan, I was told to change the rear coils so i did and still misfiring,then I was told to change all spark plugs and still misfiring.I then tried to also change the crank sensor since it"s a little off timing but no luck,still getting the code p300 and still misfiring. I don"t know what could it be and I don"t want to spend any more money.Please help.
