P1310 relates to a Igniter Circuit Malfunction and P0300 is a ramdom missfire detected. The ingnition coils can cause this but you say you they have been replaced. Best thing I can reccomend is spend some money with a good technician on diagnosis. This car is equipped with variable cam timing and other things taht could set up your problem.
