Default 2004 Maxima SE 6spd - Multiple Cylinder Misfire

Hello everyone, I am new here and need help. I just purchased a 2004 maxima and it has a code P 0300, I changed all the plugs and checked the coils, replaced the intake gasket and tested for vacuum leaks and it still has a problem. It is some better but anything over 1/4 throttle and it skips like crazy. I also noted the plugs were white on the tips as if running very lean but it is not throwing any other codes. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Sounds like an issue with your injectors. You can test them by using a multimeter to see the resistance value.

You can also check to see if there is any corrosion build up by the injector clips. Unplug them and clean them all off.

Came home today checked the injectors and all were good so I tried another coil on cylinder #2 and that fixed it so far, cleared code and drove it. So far so good. Thanks for the help.

Sounds good man. Hopefully it doesn't come back.

I know a member who changed all his coils and plugs and got the same code. It turned out to be some bad corrosion on his injectors. Hopefully for you it was just the coils.

Drove great this morning on the way to work, it is a completely different car now. I had a 2002 maxima and it was great, hope this one will be the same.
