It means random/mutiple cylinder misfire detected. Sounds like your in need of a tune up. When was the last time the plugs, wires air filter etc where changed. If it has been awhile maybe it is time to do a tune up. Then see if the code comes back.
BYM?
PS Next time please included year, make, model and mileage of car. It will make things easier.

If you ran a scanner and did not pull any other codes then it is going to make it tougher to find. Have you checked and tested the ignition coil. If so it and it's good then I would suspect a lean fuel condition. The key here is to figure out what is causing this. A vacuum leak in the intake manifold a EGR value stuck open or not fully closing. Just to name a few. Hope this helps BYM :)
