Hello, '98 CR-V, 160,000 mile, Original owner. Driving today and check engine light came on (blinking), also idled rough.Plugged in scanner and got four codes. 300, 301, 303, translate to multiple cylinder misfire. And code 1399 ?? Where should I start? Thanks

After having your valves adjusted, change your spark plug wires. They do go bad, and are supposed to be replaced every two spark plug changes.

Since the OP reported multiple codes:

P0300 - misfire code not cylinder specific
P0301 - cylinder one misfire
P0303 - cylinder three misfire
P1399 - random misfire code

There was a problem with more than a single cylinder and valve, it might have been cheaper to just replace the head.

OK, final report, We got the car back this morning. Rebuilt head at machine shop, valves replaced and what ever else they do in a head rebuild. water pump/timing belt service (like they did at the dealer @ 80,000 miles 13 years ago), spark plugs, oxygen sensor, oil change, tire rotation. $2300, ouch again! but the car is a 21 year old cream puff! Thanks
