I am not a pro mechanic, just my 2 cents...

I expect you have run an OBD scan?
If you are seeing a mis on #4 consider there may be a crack in coil or boot, this may difficult to see,
once the crack sparks through a carbon track starts adding to the conduction of a short.
You could consider swaping a boot do a drive test and then coil see if you transplant the mis then you can rule out boot or coil. Keep in mind vom readings of the coil may be unrevealing. You could look at the suspect coil in the dark for an external spark short, if you have not done so.
