Although they are new, have you pulled the plugs to see if one is fouling or running lean from possibly a bad injector?

Good thing I rechecked. They all look good and ran except that fourth plug it's solid black. So it's the fourth cylinder what do you guys think?

Did you start this up for less than 5 minutes before removing the spark plugs? If so then it's hard to tell for sure if cyl4 isn't burning all the fuel. Is this a SOHC or DOHC 1.9?

I had a similar problem with my Neon.
The spark plug wires checked good and looked fine but, I changed them anyway (had 100K miles on them). That fixed my problem.
