Question about 2003 Mazda Tribute
If you have the 4 cylinder engine, I would start by installing new Spark plugs and spark plug wires, and then drive it for a while and see if it fixes the problem.
If you have the 6 cylinder engine, you could try replacing the Cylinder number 4 ignition coil, which is a coil on plug. When not replaced, the vehicle could experience any of the following: no/hard start, long crank time, misfire, lack of power, inconsistent transmission shift points, spark plug fouling, catalytic converter failure, poor fuel economy, CEL/MIL illumination.
After fixing the problem, the check engine light will still be illuminated. The Check Engine Light should go off after driving at highway speeds for around half an hour or so, as long as the problem is resolved. If the light doesn't go away, please stop by Autozone again and have them recheck the codes. Let me know how this goes, and I will continue to help you resolve this issue.
