Hello, I am Randall. I am going to say about 99% you have a bad PCM. The PCM triggers cylinders 1/4 as a pair and 2/3 as a pair, 2/3 are working so the signal from the PCM is not being provided to fire 1/4. There are 2 wires to the PCM, They are at terminals 1A and 1B. If all wiring is ok? you can switch wires 1A and 1B and then 1/4 should fire and 2/3 will not, this confirms failed PCM. here is the link to the wiring diagram showing these wires and terminal locations

Please rate my service I have provided today, Thanks,Randall
