You had everything serviced except the one thing that will fix the problem. The problem is your central sequential fuel injection system has a clogged or defective injector to the number 4 cylinder. Following the manufacture technical service bulletin 00-66-04-00-30 dated Jan. 30 2003. This TSB details a special process to try and clear out the stuck injectors using high pressure of 150psi and then cleaning them with top engine cleaner. If after the cleaning the injectors do not get unclogged then the system will need to be upgraded from CSFI to MFI following the procedures in the technical bulletin. If you end up needing to have the fuel system upgraded, the professionals available through YourMechanic would be able to perform this for you.
