If its just that cylinder it may be the coil if you have individual coils for your plugs. If you have a distributor it may be the distributor cap. It also could very well be the plug wire or the plug itself. If the plugs are old you should replace them since they are a cheap fix. If they are new first swap two spark plug wires for each other (obviously you need to swap both the connection at the coil and plug otherwise you risk blowing your head gasket). Also if it is a consistent miss whether driving or idling it may be more serious than a coil and may be a valve problem but that is unlikely.

First the DTC P0304 is a misfire on number 4 cylinder which would be a sparkplug,plug wire,coil or a fuel injector and sense you've replaced three out of the four I would think you have a clogged or faulty injector.As for the DTC P0300 that is a random misfire detected which could co-inside with the bad injector.If it were me I would replace the injector and go from there and see if that fixes the problem.

these vehicles have COPs (Coil over plug) type ignition coils. Each cylinder/spark-plug has a single coil on top (4cyl=4coils/6cyl=6coils) They usually dont all fail at the same time. Check the spark plugs if you are getting no fuel or no spark. Also these vehicles are known for crankshaft position sensor failure. This sensor controls the fuel injectors, if faulty here are the typical symptoms: Hard/long starts, random stalls, bad gas mileage, no start (but cranking), misfire, random misfire. Fuel pump is within the fuel tank below the rear seats

Belt usually isnt the reason for a misfire, when was the last time you changed plugs and wires? If you hold the brake and put it in gear while still holding the brake apply the gas does it miss more then? Ive had to replace upper intake rubber gaskets that had 1 cylinder misfiring but ive also had it be a wire or a plug and yes even just a coil.

Engine misfire :(

put a vacuum gauge on the engine,the needle should fluctuate back and forth, take a timing light and instead of putting on the number one plug put it on the plug wire with the problem.point the light at the gauge if the needle looks like it is steady you have a problem with one of the valves or the cam shaft.

that souns like an airflow meter problem,you will need to sort the misfire out first as this will cause all sorts of fuelling issues,the secondary air flow is from the cold start pump but will only effect the emissions when cold.effiency below threshold could be the cat or rear lambda but pointless doing any further diagnostics untill the misfire has gone,check the air mass in measuring blocks or advanced measuring blocks this should give you actual and specified limits if its
