99 Deville Error Codes P0300 & P0405.
I have a 99 Cadillac Deville with trouble codes P0300: CADILLAC Cylinder Misfire Detected Random Cylinders & P0405: Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) A Circuit Low. The car is not idling properly, surging, and hesitating. The car will not accelerate past 35 mph, even when I push the gas pedal to the floor. I've changed the spark plugs, spark plug wires, and ignition coils. Now I can't get access to the EGR valve. There is a metal clamp attached to some fuel lines blocking my access to a bolt. Do I need to take the whole throttle body off to access this screw? I wanted to take the EGR valve off and try cleaning it. Has anyone had these codes before simultaneously? Was it the EGR valve? Help anyone!!

You need to depressurize and remove the fuel rail. Based on that DTC I'd guess that your EGR valve DOES need a cleaning. Might also check your fuel pressure and check for a clogged CAT, either of which could explain not being able to accelerate past 35 with your foot to the floor.
