yeah i figured id at least get people to look at it. well i just bought the truck about 20 days ago. now its throwing this code. ill have to replace my spark plugs and inspect my spark plug wires make sure there are no cracks. i wasent sure if this was just maybe a commom problem with a simple fix.... that would be to easy also the truck seems kind of bagless untill you hit 3700 rpm. then it really comes into it maybe something to do with the check engine light

It has everything to do with the engine light. You first step seems logical. Replace the plugs and wires. This code should clear itself quickly after you change them and (if) that it is indeed the problem.

A code P0300 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Faulty spark plugs or wires
  • Faulty coil (pack)
  • Faulty oxygen sensor
    (s)
  • Faulty fuel injector(s)
  • Burned exhaust
  • Faulty catalytic converter(s)
  • Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages
  • Faulty camshaft position sensor
  • Defective computer

The last number indicates the cyl. #, so it means cyl. #3 had a miss fire.

Hey man, i had a 95.5 and a 97 3.4 V6 tacoma and both trucks had the same issue. How many miles do you have? I had a hard time narrowing my problem down between hte plugs/ wires and the coils. On my 95 it ended up being a coil which is around $120 so i replaced the wires too while i was at it. Plugs never did solve the problem. One way i diagnosed it was to hook a computer up to the truck while i drove it( buddy had one) and find out which cylinders were misfirring. If the coil is bad that cylinder along with the cylinder that the wire is running to should misfire. I then moved the coil to a different cylinder to see if the problem followed or stayed the same. Since you have a new coil you might be able move it to cylinder 5 and see if hte results are better/ same or worse. If moving the new coil doesn't change anything at all pickup a TPS sensor for like $25. On my 97 i thought i was having the same problems so i went out and blew a bunch of money on coils/ wires becasue the symptoms were almost exactly the same but the problem then was a simple TPS( Throttle Positioning Sensor) and i remember my CEL comming on and going off when it would surge or cut out. I would also clean the MAF sensor and throttle body while your changing parts. Things are just comming to mind here so bare with me... Get a can of seafoam for the truck too becasue that willl help out alot as far as a tune-up goes, I hope this helps

We see this a lot on the 3.4's and a lot of the time it's a coil that's gone bad. If you've already replaced the plugs and wires, the coil's the only thing left.

I didn't see where you're located, but if you're in AZ, I have a few good coils for testing purposes, if needed.

Never mind about borrowing the coil, I see you're on the other side of the world from me.

No rotor on the 3.4, they've got coil on plug, with two cylinders firing from one coil.

When you pull the coils to check 'em, look real close at the boots, and you'll probably see where there's been spark exiting the boot, and making contact with the metal tube. The rubber will usually be white on the inside where the spark is exiting.

Good luck, and hopefully you'll find the problem.
