My 96 Z28 showed this code today and the SES light started to blink... what are the basic causes of this aside from the bad spark and bad wire... i recently changed the opti and car was working fine but hesitates a little now and then... any help is appreciated.

well I checked the wire and everything seemed to be in order.... i scanned again and now it gives the P0300 code....i cant seem to find any problems with the wires but the car is is giving hard starts... cranks a lot before finally starting, which i dont understand because the starter is new, I have an optima battery, and the opti is also new... I dont understand what's wrong...

P0300 is a random misfire code. Since you already got a 307 code, I'd continue to look at #7.

You now know why the driveability tech is the highest paid guy in the shop...!

Long cranking has nothing to do with the starter. If anything, it tells you the starter is working well. :) New opti, but what brand?
