    I have a 99 Yukon and was on a road trip, when I was going up hill in the mountains the service engine light can on flashing and then steady. I put the code reader on and came up with code P0304 " #4 misfire" I cleared the code and it was fine all week. I took the same route home and when I was going uphill in the same place the light came on again with the same code. Any thoughts what it might be?

    Could be a lot of things. Spark plug, wires, coil pack, valve damage.

    Faulty spark plug wire
    Faulty coil (pack)
    Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
    Faulty fuel injector
    Burned exhaust valve
    Running out of fuel
    Poor compression
    Defective computer

    I would pull # 4 plug and have a look.

    As soon as I get any misfire codes I change everything... Cap,rotor,coils if more than one or individual. Nothing more I hate worse than chasing down bad coils etc.... Another thing is a bad intake gasket can cause misfire codes as well, Just had this happen on a ford pickup and never knew it could.
