Sound,s like a bad plug,pumping the gas on a fuel injected engine put,s the computer into limp mode,meaning it will only let so much fuel and fire go to engine,to find the skip,remove one plug wire at a time,when engine run,s the same,you will have found the one you need to check out.

Well like I said before its did pop up code for cylinder 4 but after I unhooked the battery cable it went away and the no spark code popped up. I'm out in the sticks with no tools. Will it be safe to drive 160 miles back home before I can remove it?

No problem,

OK I switched out the plug and it still pops up the no spark code and I barely got my van start after pumping it for a few mins. What could be wrong still?

May be bad coil pack,or wire going to the number 4 plug,

Well I got home and did change out pack plugs and wires. Took the negative cable off for half HR took it for a drive, drove great and boom started to miss again. I even put sea form in the tank
