Since you have a misfire, the fuel in that cylinder isn't burning. Are you sure you have the firing order correct. Also try using one of your old plugs and wire for that cylinder and see if it works. If you only checked for spark at the wire, you might just have a faulty new plug- it happens.

sounds like you may have a stuck closed poppet (fuel injector) inside your plenum. No fuel would cause misfire and a lean conditon. Also a vacuum leak in that cylinder would cause a misfire but yoyr spark plug would be fuel fouled.

Remove the plugs from the head. Insert into the coil wires. Make sure they are properly earthed on the engine. Crank the motor and check for spark at each of the plugs.
Refer to the diagram. Cylinders are connected as shown on the diagram in blue. 1 goes to cylinder 1(sparkplug furthest from coil pack), 2 to 2, 3 to 3 and 4 to 4(closets to coil pack).
To test the coil pack use a digital volt meter. Measure resistance between coil towers for coil 1(marked 1 in red on diagram) Value should be between 12000 and 14500 ohm. Do the same for coil towers 2.
Measure resistance between I and C1. If the measurement is more than 5 ohm the coil is defective. Do the same for I to C2.
Measuring voltage at I(Ignition start/run) to ground should be 10V.
I is connected to the 15A engine fuse. The radio interference capacitor is connected between this line and earth at the coil. Disconnect it to see if it cures the problem.
C1 and C2 connect to the powertrain control module.
Bear in mind that aftermarket coil wires may cause problems with misfiring, so see if you cant find an OEM coil wire to replace the broken one before replacing anything else.

I investigated this for over an hour while tossing things around in my head and truly think that you need to have your O2 censor checked along with your converter. One probable cause to your misfire could very well stem from your catalytic converter due to an O2 faulty etc.etc. Why not try a smog shop before tearing that engine apart any further and replacing any unnecessary gaskets. Thats a tight engine in my opinion and unless you really mistreat it, I would bet on it at race day. Have you recently been in a fender bender? Let us know cause that might change my advice.

A few months back my daughter took her 2000 nissan maxima in and had it scan with a obd11 and she was told it was a o2 sensor, she did nothing ,so i took it in today and it reads po300 code.[misfire...

It shoudn't be. Your oxygen sensors detect the oxygen in the engine. A misfire can be a few things, such as spark plugs/coils, wires, distributor cap and rotor, cam sensor, crank sensor, ecm. I would start with a tune up. If it has been more then 75,000 miles since you changed the plugs and wires, it could be that. Has it been acting up, such as hesitations, stalling when you slow down or stop?

I have a 1999 Nissan Altima and the spark plug broke in half while in the engine. Any ideas on how to get it out?

If just the top porcelin part broke off, then you should be able to use a regular spark plg socket to remove normally.

If the Plug broke in some strange way that does not allow you to get a socket on it, then it gets more difficult.A person hay be able to do some careful drilling and rethreading, but the safe way is to pull the head off and have a quilified automotive machine shop get it out for you

Good Luck with this problem

you may need to have your spark plugs checked especially if they were just done (a recent tune up) misthreading can easily happen, or they may need to be replaced a car can run minus on plug.
