Hi all,
New to the board so this is a hello and a plea for help!

The 106 is my first car and Im learning to drive but also learning about maintenance. I have only had it a few months and there was little in the way of service history. The oil level is good and looks clean. Water level looks good.
Yesterday and today, when I first started the car and pulled away, it felt lumpy and wouldnt idle smoothly. The CEL was flashing. The car would not pull well at all and seemed to flat line at around 3500rpms.
Both times I stopped the car when safe to do so and then turned off the ignition. I looked under the bonnet but didnt see anything obvious. Upon starting the car, the engine smoothed out and drove normally. It was as if there was a problem, it went into limp mode and cleared itself on restart.

My dad has some diagnostic tools and the basic OBD2 tool showed the following.
P0300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected.
He also has the tool he used on the Citroen car he used to own as well as the software and he thinks he may have the disc for the Peugeot software so he will try and load that onto the laptop if he can find it.

I have now bought a service kit, plugs, filters and oil and will try that first but Im worried it may be something more involved hence asking for help.

I did some research online and see sometimes the coil pack can cause issues. The one on the car at the moment is a Bougicord unit I think.

So, I will do the service and see how it goes but just in case, what else should I be looking at?
Thanks in advance.

Have a look around the electrical plugs to the injectors. It not uncommon for water from screen washer jets/rain to drip onto injector plug and corrode connections

Thanks. Will be doing the service tomorrow after work. Dad said I should check what to gap the spark plugs at, any ideas?

Will check when I change the plugs.
Have just spent the last few hours sorting PP2000 on the laptop, what a game that was!
When I connected it to the car, I wasn't sure what I was doing and it seemed very limited as to what information I could see. Steep learning curve! The only code I managed to find was the original P0300 so hopefully once sorted I should be good to go again
