Sounds like two problems. P0300 and P0303 are possibly spark plugs. They could be a coil pack but I'm leaning toward a spark plug problem because of the other two codes - they're indicating O2 sensor problems. If the O2 sensors are screwed up, the car reverts to preprogrammed, rich fuel maps that send excessive fuel through the engine. The reasoning is, if the ECU can't trust the O2 sensors to determine how much fuel to burn optimally, it'll pump a bunch of extra fuel through the engine to keep it safe. Having too little fuel (aka running lean) can destroy an engine, so the ECU plays it safe and runs rich (too much fuel) instead. The consequences of rich running are relatively minor compared to lean running, but can and do tend to create excessive carbon buildup on the catalytic converter and O2 sensors, as well as fouling spark plugs.
First thing to do though is to swap the wires on your coil packs and see if you end up with a misfire code for the same cylinder #3. If you do, then it's the plug or wire. If it moves, it's the coilpack. Replace whichever part is faulty. You'll probably need oxygen sensors too, before you can clear all the codes.

Do you mean the OBD II connector? If your car is an early 99 then it's a MKIII and it's located under a little door on the dash under the heater controls HERE. IF it's a late 99 model then it's a MKIV and it's under the dash at the far left corner, just above the hood release lever.

This is an Evaporative Emissions System code - indicates the computer has checked the system and concludes there is a leak in the system (small leak).. could simply be a loose fuel cap.
