Misfire Codes P0300, P0301-P0312 and P0313+P0314

The only way to clear the code is to use a crankshaft position relearn with a scan tool.

Codes P0300 to P0319 are known as misfires codes. These codes are some of the most misunderstood codes because of how a misfire is detected.

A misfire could be caused by an ignition, fuel or mechanical issue. There is no such thing as a misfire sensor. Instead, the ECM detects a misfire using the crankshaft position sensor or, in some cases, the knock sensor. The ECM calculates the time between the edges of the crankshaft reluctor wheel teeth by receiving a signal from the crankshaft position sensor. The ECM knows the firing order and the crankshaft’s position, so changes to the rotational velocity are detected. The ECM classifies abnormal changes as misfires.
