      Missfire on cylinder 1 and 4 only while driving

      Missfire with code p0300 p0301 p0304 only while under a load , if you start car up and let it idil it will not give any codes ,but if you drive it . It will eventually throw those codes, I have replace plugs , plug wires , coil pack. Can’t find any vacuum leaks , I do need to replace fuel pump seal but I wouldn’t think that would cause a missfire

      Try checking the "air hose" starting at the air filter. A number of people get nearly undetectable cracks in it, in the folds, that causes unmetered air to enter the engine.

      Weird idea, crank position sensor, VSS?

      Or if you would like to join in the continuing hunt for misfire codes how about a your crankshaft pulley (harmonic balancer). I have to say though, I would be looking at the coil pack (just 'cause 1 and 4 fire off the same coil. Did you replace the mounting plate when you replaced the coil pack? Maybe a crappy ground (had it happen on a Saturn a couple of years ago).

      What do you mean there's no turbo?

      How did your plugs look when you replaced them? Cover in oil? Being that its the outside 2 cylinders, I might suspect a bad valve cover gasket which is letting in oil
