I've fixed several of the codes. I had a new tune up, o2 sensors, grumet. I still have p300 code and my car bogs down alot, plus it shakes at 500 rpms. It cuts off at times and I have to put it in neautral. My mechanic says I need crankshaft sensors. So what can I do?

A PO300 is a random misfire. Many things can cause it. Start easy. Check for vacuum leaks, and check fuel pump pressure to make sure it is within spec.

If you have the engine scoped they will tell what cylinder is causing the misfire. It may be a bad plug or wire.
