Misfires, What Causes a Cylinder to Misfire?

Engine misfires can contribute to low compression (bad cylinder, piston rings, sticky or leaky valves or even valves out of adjustment) will affect the amount of air coming into the cylinder which will cause a cylinder to misfire and could set a P0300.

When misfire occurs, performance suffers along with fuel economy, emissions and idle quality. And, when a misfiring vehicle is subjected to an emissions test, it will usually fail because of the unusually high levels of hydrocarbons (HC) in the exhaust.
