If you have a 1997 Skylark w/ a four cylinder engine, then you have the same one I do, a 2.4L dual overhead cam. It is not a quad 4, different beast altogether. I believe your problem might be the plug boots, did you replace them? It's a relatively cheap solution, about $17 at AutoZone if I remember right.

1997 buick 2.4 misfire code


Its most likely a clogged or malfunctioning fuel injector. Unplug the injector wire harness and check contacts for corrosion. If there is corrosion clean it with some electrical contact cleaner spray, apply some dielectric grease before reattaching it. If that doesn't work you can buy some fuel injector cleaner, the aerosol type that attaches to the fuel rail, not the gas additive type.
