Check engine light came up and codes shown are
P0300 random misfire detected

I already changed spark plugs, also ignition wires

be the cause please help me....
i already clear the codes 2 times,
test drove the van, 15 miles and
then when i shut of and started again,
the check engine light showed up also i checked the codes and they were still the same

if its running good now the codes may be coming up because they wasn't erased the proper way,you have to use a scanner to erase those with or they will still show up even after a good tune up,if the truck is still miss firing check the cap on it, chances are it may have a small hair line crack in it,good luck.Source(s): been a certified mechanic for 38 yrs now.

Check that the spark plug wires weren't switched during the change.
Also, the cap and rotor could be bad. Check for wear of the distributor shaft. The pickup could be rubbing the pickup coil at one point causing the problem.

my last dodge had that problem.what i would suggest is to check your timing,run a compression check on those two cylinders,and make sure those plugs arent fouled.they may be new but if it runs to rich or lean it will foul them fast.my valve seals and seats ended up being my problem.hope this helps.Source(s): mechanic

check the lower intake valley pan for the gasket sucked in,just look down the throttle body with a flashlight and see if any oil is in there,usually sucked in on passenger side rear.

You need to check the compression on these cyls. You might have a bit of carbon across the valve seat
