Default 2004 Forenza P0300 Engine Light Flashing

I'm trying to sell this car this week and this code just came on with the engine light flashing.

The car often misfires. The head gasket was replaced in the past year due to some oil leaking - there still seems to be a little bit of oil that leaks. I also have to refill coolant pretty frequently - possibly a leak? The car has almost 150k miles on it.

I was planning on taking this thing to Carmax to sell - should I try to fix this issue first or will they still give me an offer? I'm nervous to drive with a flashing engine light as well. The AC does not work either so I'm not really looking to spend any money in this car. I'd take $500 for it honestly.

Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

It sounds as if the repairs are not worth the vehicle's worth.

Trade-In prices (RUNNING WELL, no major issues) for that year,

NADA figures....

$1,100 / $1,500 (Average and Clean)

Clean Retail, $2,850

Clear the code and take whatever Carmax will give you for it (and run) is my thought.

Won't Carmax know that the code was just cleared when they check it out? I'm wondering if I should be upfront as to not delay the sale?

They'll do a full diagnostic test in all likelihood.
