P0300 can be a pain to diagnose, look at www.gearchatter.com/viewtopic8732.php for the diagnostic procedures, maybe you'll get some ideas on other things to check even if you don't have a scan tool. Mine has thrown it a couple times over the years but stayed off after clearing it. The low coolant sensors are known for going bad triggering the light. If the level is fine you can try and clean it, replace it, or just unplug it to keep the light off. It's on the radiator a few inches below the cap. My car doesn't have one, at some point GM gave up on them. Hope this helps....

just have to start tracking the 0300 down. You say you checked the plugs and wires, what about fuel pressure? Have you cleaned the maf and checked for vacuum leaks and things like that? It would be nice to be able to scan it, that would tell you a lot about what's going on.
