    When is the code detected?

    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 Chevrolet 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.
