Default P0304 Success

#4 misfire. Tore it apart today & it was a 2" section of gasket blown out at the bottom by #4 cylinder, lower manifold to head. Idles as smooth as new. Nice to post a solution & not a problem.
Thanks for all the advice. This forum rocks.

Congrats ! And thanks for posting the cure. If it isn't the wires/plugs, it's the intake gasket....

I have an '05 Dream Turbo H/O and we've changed the plugs and wires and also the PCV valve. Could this be our problem as we have noticed a small drop of "liquid" on the garage floor. Still showing the same 304 code and engine light is still on and has a miss? Can you provide us the needed info as to how you repaired your PT? Also, the cost? Is this something that needs to be repaired at the dealer or is it possible for the average mechanically inclined person to do?
Thanks, RT66
