I would double check the wire as they may have gotten out of order when you were replacing the coil and plugs

It could be the sensor, or a fuel mixture problem for that side.
A mechanic would use a scanner to watch the data flow on that sensor while making that side run rich.

The O2 sensor code could be the answer. If the sensor is faulty it could be causing the fuel mixture to be too lean.

2003 Pontiac Vibe - 4 Cyl. 150k miles. Ignition coils keep going bad - every 4-6k miles. Coil 1 has been replaced 4 times, Coil 3 once. Coil 4 twice in the past year (20k miles). All spark plugs

Install new spark plugs, 4 new coils & replace the oxygen sensors

O2 Sensors are only good for 100,000 miles, then slow
down or quite

No idea why the coils do not last 5 or 6 years

Cylinder #1 is always at the front on a 4 cyl

When the Spark Plugs were replaced,
they may have over looked the intake

You either have a misfire on a coil that

Have a rough idle situation ran a code scan and

i would replace the number 8 plug and coil pack. then see how it runs.and on the o2 sensor you need to find out if its upstream or downstream.

Did you clear the code first after replacing and did you replace the spark plugs. If the plugs are fouled the cylinders arnt firing and the excess air is going over the 02 sensor and since it PCM cant command enough fuel it stays lean.

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.
