OK! First use good fuel injector cleaner twice in the row (Chevron super concentrate) you can get it on Chevron gas station. Try to figure out , did it help with the symptoms you have. Another thing, my friend had this problem. The number two cylinder sparkplug boot was bad. We started trouble shooting by swapping the number two and three boots and the problem followed. Simply boot was faulty on cylinder #2-new boot problem gone! Check sparkplug boot on cylinder #4 , perhaps you need just new boot on cylinder four. Good luck.BTW did you chane the oxygen sensors in the past?
