Answers :

When standing in front of the vehicle, #4 cylinder is on the left front of the engine.
\015\012The coil pack is not difficult to replace, but before you do, replace the spark plug first. You can also use a spray water bottle and spray the coil and spark plug wires while the engine is running and see if you get a spark jump. If you do, you may have a leaking ( worn out ) plug wire or coil tower.
