    i have a 2000 silverado 2500 4x4 6.0, i have a random misfire code of po300, i have replaced plug wires, plugs, cleaned throttle body and mass air flow twice, i run super gas and also add injectore cleaner, new fuel filter, no other symptoms other than the light flashing.
    i have heard intake gaskets are a problem on this truck.

    when i bought it the exhaust manifold bolts were broke and it did have some exhaust leaks, but we replaced all bolts and gaskets.

    when ever i've caught an intake leak, i had P0300 and/or P0301 through P0308 and usually and p0171 and/or p0174 lean codes.....and if you spray water outside near the intake gaskets and the truck starts to fludder then thats another telltail sign, i hope i've helped you
