Hi Im david and would be happy to assist you. Potential causes of a P0351 code include: Short to voltage or ground on COP driver circuit Open on COP driver circuit Loose connection at coil or broken connector locks Bad Coil (COP) Faulty Powertrain Control Module

it seems to me that your issue is with #1 cylinder. i see that you replaced the coil wires and plugs to no avail so that pretty much leaves a pssible injector problem for #1 cylinder.

do you still need assistance?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

These codes are both for the number 1 ignition coil river circuit. If the coil pack has been replaced and the codes are still setting then you either have a wiring issue or internal failure in the powertrain control module. The driver circuit is going to need to be tested for a short to power or ground as well as either checking for continuity or load testing the circuit. If the wiring does check out then the PCM can be condemned. All testing has to be done at the time the code is active and spark is missing on the 1 and 4 cylinders.
