Hi Kyleh, first it all depends on what size engine you have. That determines how many ignition coils your vehicle has.

It says p0304 which I think it was missing on the 4th cylinder if I remember right. I don't know much about cars.

Ok yes that's right it is number 4 cylinder missing. Now we need to find out where number 4 is located, in order to do that I need to know what year is it?

Ok great, when you looking at under the hood and you spot the coils closes to you, you should see only 3 of them. Number 4 is the coil right in the middle of the 3 that you see closes to you. Do you see what I'm talking about?

Could it possibly be the o2 sensor causing the problem?

Just to interject here you have normally 3 coils not 6 on this car each coil feeds two cylinders. Best thing to do is to freeze frame on a scan so you can read and see what sensor is screwing up if none are then check fuel pressure and check for a vacuum leak. Finally if that is all ok do basic stuff like wire resistance and compression etc.
