Your car uses an ignition coil for every cylinder. Unlike in previous engines where there is a coil and wiring is routed to each cylinder, the coil sits directly on top of each plug.

A spark plug replacement may be in order as a maintenace step, I would recomend motorcraft spark plug as the Original equipment replacement
