Default Check Engine light is on. Shake in Idle

Hello everyone,
I have a 2001 9-5 SE. The check engine light just came on a few days ago and the car now shakes in ideal, and has loss of power. The shaking is on and off during driving too. The code from the check engine light says that cylinder 4 & 6 are misfiring. I have replaced all 6 spark plugs, and the coils for the plugs with new ones. It is still doing the same. Next, cleaned out the Throttle body, and the mass airflow sensor. Changed the fuel filter too right after the tune-up. I have had no luck so far with any of the repairs. The problem continues. Does anyone know what is causing this? I would really appreciate the help.
