Multiple Cylinder Misfire

I took my 01 zx3 Focus out for a ride yesterday and ran into this problem. Right when i started the car, the steering wheel was hard to turn like my power steering was cut (not sure if that has anything to help diagnose or not) shortly down the driveway it gets significantly easier to turn the wheel and i go about my business. As i make it maybe a mile and a half down the road the car starts to stutter like its loosing power, but keeping RPMs, and as i go another quarter mile the stutter takes over and im driving with little acceleration power at the pedal no matter what gear i choose. Now the CEL is flashing.
So i turn around and bring it home to see if there are any noticible problems under the hood, and all seems well. I go to the store and get the CEL checked to see what the code is. It throws a Cylinder 1 and 4 misfire. I replaced the coil, plugs and wires a ~40k miles ago, could it be time for a replace and an easy fix?
Im away at college with little to no tools unlike at home, so im trying to weigh my options prior to making a move. Thank you in advance, Ryan.
