Default Hat Trick! 3 codes at once.

So, I was doing some spirited driving the other day and the check engine light began flashing. I pulled over immediately and used my AP to check the codes. Actually, first I looked under the hood for anything obvious like smoke or an overwhelming smell. After not seeing or smelling anything I looked under the car. Nothing down their either. I got back in the car and checked the codes. I stated P3000, P3003 and P3004. All list as misfires. I'm guessing P3000 is the general misfire and 3003 and 3004 are cylinders 3 and 4. I cleared the codes and waited a few minutes. I started the car and waited 5 minutes and got out and looked at the engine. It didn't look like it was shaking or anything off-balance and the code did not come back. I've been driving like an old woman ever since and haven't see anything irregular. Could this have just been a hiccup of some sort?

They were replaced about 6 months ago when I had a new clutch put in. Same people that did my pro-tune, TPG Tuning in the Pittsburgh area.

A compression test was performed when the plugs where replaced. I requested it for just piece of mind since I'm not the first owner. The engine passed the compression test. I don't have the results.

The fuel is only a few weeks old. Unfortunately, I was not data logging at the time.

I won't be able to troubleshoot anymore since the vehicle will be stored for winter.

I believe he was asking you to do another one to determine if any thing has changed in the last 6 months. Running a tuned car increases the risk of cracking pistons/burning valves ect. Might be worth the peace of mind before you store it for the winter.

When I take it out next year I'll make that a priority. I'm looking at installing an AOS and BC. So, a trip to the tuner is the works anyways.
