Sometimes misses when first starting until you push on accelerator and then it runs smoothly. Coils have been replaced and also spark plugs and wires have been replaced. Took to auto zone and PO304 was the diagnostic code that came up. Any ideas?

    Check the compression on the #4 cylinder and look for any vacuum leaks near that cylinder. I have seen a lot of cracked vacuum lines and leaking intake manifolds on GM V6s have these problems.
