Question about 1997 Toyota Tacoma
Have you replaced the coil yet? I assume by all 4 cylinders misfiring you mean P0300 Random Misfire? It could be a number of other things - a faulty fuel injector, coil, etc. Read this article for more info on random misfires - http://www.obd-codes.com/p0300

I don't have a solution but I can tell my story on code P0300. 2002 Buick Rendezvous. What I have replaced so far that did not fix the misfire problems are 1. EGR valve, 2. throttle position sensor, 3. Idol air control valve, 4. The rear crank position sensor, 5. the control module under the coil packs, and 6. the fuel filter. So far it seems to run a little better when I unplug the EGR valve but that is only temporary. I still have the stumbling random misfire but not all the time. It comes and goes. Currently it will run smooth and strong for a while, maybe 10 miles or so, then it just looses power. When I back off the gas it smooths out a bit then as I accelerate again it misfires all over the place with the tach jumping up and down. It will do this sometimes for a few seconds to a few minutes then smooth out and run strong and smooth again. The a mile or so down the road it will misfire again all over again. Sometimes it goes for 30 miles without a misfire at all. I have to question how the cat could cause this issue as mentioned in the list of possible causes.
