ROUGH IDLING AFTER NEW SPARK PLUG INSTALLATION, AND DYING WHEN COMING UP TO STOPS.
2000 Ford Escort

Hi, my 2000 Ford Escort ZX2 has been turning off (not stalling) when I'm coming up to stop signs/lights and will turn on just fine once I realize it died. I decided it was time for new spark plugs, now I'm getting about 50 miles per half tank (it's a 10gal), really rough idling and the service engine light is on. What could be wrong? I don't want to waste money with false leads.
Your starting point here-have the computer scanned for code/s-could be the wrong type plugs/incorrect gapping

They're the standard for the escort and they come pre-gapped. It says there's a misfire from #4. The guy helping me said I might need a new coil because the one I have now might have grown accustomed to the old plugs.

P0304-check the plug, compression and injector for this cylinder
