Changed plugs, checked coil seems fine, was running but hiccoughed alot but ironed itself out after awhile then just lost power 2 weeks ago so checked the spark plugs and noticed only two center ones were firing so changed all plugs but same problem then removed coil that the 2 outer plugs go to and tested it so thats not the prob tested ht leads wasnt getting any response but not sure if thats the problem. I didnt think ht leads wore out or do they? what else could it be?

It may just be a coil breaking down or a bad spark plug. Try swapping one of the coils over with the faulty one and see if the misfire happens on that cylinder and cylinder 2 runs fine. If it does then swap the faulty one for a new coil. Don't know about your car but most now have individual coils for each cylinder that fit directly onto each spark plug.
I'd check #1 spark plug.
Usually a misfire code "fix" is a spark plug, spark plug wire, or a coil pack / distributor.
Keeping it simple...I'd go with the spark plug first and then look at the condition of the wires.
alot of times the coil goes bad and kills the driver for the cylinder, remove the plug wire from that coil and see if it has spark if it does then my next step would be to do a compression test on #2 cylinder to make sure its not a mechainical problem. if the compression is good then check for vacuum leaks around that cylinders intake port and last is to make sure the firing order is right.the last thing would be to swap that injector with another cylinder and see if the misfire moves.good day.
if one spark plug were fouled or one plug wire was arcing to the engine then 2 cylinders would not work, the spark is controlled by the computerif its been 30,000 or sole miles since plugs and wires were changed change them it might fix it but at least you will know it isnt that and plugs would have been close to worn out anyway
Could be a defective plug or clogged injector What cylinder was IDd. Isolate the problem cylinder swap the plug from a good cylinder see if the miss moves with the plug,if not try having the injectors cleaned. That should get the zoom zoom back.
