Default P0301, P0302, P0420 codes - 2003 Outback

I've got a deal worked on a 2003 Outback with the 2.5L. It has 141k miles, new tune up, water pump, timing belt, etc. In good shape and runs good. Mostly.

The problem is that the CEL is flashing and I'm getting a P0301, P0302, and P0420 code. The car starts and idles fine and runs good when on the highway, but when you get in to it it bucks and is down on power.

I'm thinking it is the coil, since it is a 1&2 cylinder misfire and those are fired off of the same pack.

What do you guys think?

It could be the coil pack, it could be a hg, it could be plugs. do a compression test when you check the plugs.

Sounds fuel related. Could be a sensor problem or an intake or pre cat exhaust leak. Try resetting the ecu and see if it helps in the short term. If it "fixes" it for a few miles, but the problem comes back then it's probably something I mentioned
