Your really need to have the code read. Otherwise, it's pure speculation. It would just be coincidence if it was the same problem as mine. My understanding is that you are (generally) ok to run the car if the light is solid. If it is flashing, it's a more serious problem and you should stop the car and not drive it further.

I know I 'clicked' the cap a dozen times or so. OK so I rounded up to the nearest 25 cents - never had a problem with my Ford doing that or more.
I'd be interested in knowing if this problem is more prevalent in the South and during summer months.

Apparently the ECU can spot a slight decelaration of the engine after a cylinder fires and interprets this as a miss.
I got one a few months ago on cyl no 2.

301 = Cyl 1 misfire
302 = Cyl 2 misfire
303 = Cyl 3 misfire
304 = take a guess...
I used to have code 303 after I replaced the plugs until I then also changed the wires:)
