Hello, Eddie here and I will try to help. Can you check number 4 injector harness with a noid light and see if it flashes? Also, can you pull number 4 coil pack up out of the head, and put a spark tester on it, and lay it on the valve cover, and see if number 4 coil is indeed firing the plug? lets try to isolate whether or not it's spark or injector pulse that is missing.

I have switched plugs and coils from 2 to 4 to6 still #4 does not fire.

Alright, so you have verified that there is no spark on plug 4? but it does have injector pulse to the injector?

I'm going to pull the wiring diagram up, I believe it's a straight shot from the each coil back to the engine computer. so if the coil drivers are in the ECM, then I'm starting to believe the ECM has failed.

Is it 2.4 or 3.3L engine?

Alright, the number 4 coil pack, has a BLACK/RED wire, that should have 12 volts to it constant with key ON, The WHITE/BLACK wire runs straight to ground, so that should have less than 3 ohms resistance measuring it right to the neg. battery terminal. Do you have a volt meter to check those signals? The other two wires run directly to the Engine Computer. and the BLUE/YELLOW wire at pin 11 at the ECM is a pulsed ground signal that the Engine Computer sends to fire the coil.
