Hi there. From the description you have provided, your vehicle’s P0304 misfire needs to be properly diagnosed since replacing components is not working. It could be low compression in that cylinder. This could account for not feeling the miss cold.

Increased RPM can overcome slightly low compression. A compression test should be performed, to rule out a mechanical failure. It could also be a faulty fuel injector electrically failing with increased temperature.

Resistance increases with an increase in temperature. It could be a poor electrical connection again, showing up with increased temperature. Circuit tests should be performed. I recommend having you vehicle’s Check Engine Light diagnosed and repaired by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
