I had this problem after I changed my timing belt.

It turned out to be the intake tube. It wasn't on the Throttle body all the way. :(

Coil pack. I had similar issues right before one of the coils died. Changed it with the top NAPA($105) coil pack and it ran better and stronger than when it was new and no more wanting to stall issues. The misfire is probably the coilpack dieing. My code was a misfire on #3 also but it was completely dead. No firing at all.
