Sometimes the problem is the ignition coil and not the spark plugs. I would try putting the #1 ignition coil on a different cylinder, then put that one on #1 and see if the misfire moves with it. If it does, then replace the coil. If not, then you could have an issue with the fuel injector or something going on with the inside of the engine. I am guessing you are going to need a new coil to solve the problem.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
