Manifold / Missfire Problems!!

So it started with a check engine light that read P0300 which I know means missfire so I got worried and thought of selling since it could be lots of money in repair but then the car made a loud noise so then I found out that the manifold was loose and was missing bolts so I can fix that easy myself but could that be the reason why the check engine lit up?!? I love my car but cnt afford new pistons or coils ? So please help anyone thanks

Lol random misfire usually harmless. Your internals are fine. Tighten the bolts. Clear the code and you should be good

Treat it well and it will run forever. Someone was on here a couple months ago with over 200k on the clock and no serious problems, then he got in an accident. Would have been interesting to see how far he could have gone.

I would however suggest new plugs and clean your air filter. That would do it too
