It could be the #4 fuel injector.I have seen once so bad injector that sprayed so mutch fuel into cylinder that caused a hydrolock that damaged(bent) the connection rod and cylinder lost some compression. Other shop changed all ignition parts and injector but car was still misssing.I checked compression ratio and find low compression in that cylinder.

It's not a fuel injector. It's a bad coil. Let us not make this a doom and gloom problem.

Sorry but i am thinking as a mechanic and i assumed that you checked #4 cylinder for spark before assembly.
