WHAT IS THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE OF THE P0300, GENERAL MISFIRE CODE.

1999 Dodge Dakota • 176,000 miles

The engine is a 6 cylinder. It runs fine when cold and at highway speeds. In stop/start driving around town it runs fine after driving for 15 minutes or so. But shortly after warming up it will stall. It only stalls when at a complete stop. The idle rpms will drop, the idle will become rough, if I don't give it gas the engine stalls. It cranks right up after it stalls and runs okay. The last time this happened, the check engine light came on right after it stalled. The engine code was read and it was P0300, general misfire.
