First thigns first. Check with a spark tester hooked to a good ground. Are you getting the same spark on 1 and 4 as you are on 2 and 3? Same color spark. Definition, pattern, speed of fire?

Listen to the injectors or feel them and see if they are all clicking. If they ain't clicking then there is a issue with the injectors. Check for signal at them with a noid light. Should be the same as on cylinder 2 and 3

Crank sensor will not be the issue as 2 and 3 are running fine

when did you notice this first occur? Did it happen all of a sudden or was the vehicle slowly starting to run worse and worse.

EDIT:
also has the vehicle been ran overheated lately? I need as much as you can give me.
