First, what caused the engine to overheat, and was that problem fixed? Have you had the computer scanned to see if there are any trouble codes associated with the missing or skipping? What prompted you to change the #4 coil? A little more information will be helpful.

2001 Kia Sephia 4 cyl Auto I had the cv axles changed 5 days later it started running rough slow acceleration 7 runs with a skip never had this problem never had a full tune up help?

Check for loose Plug Wires, and such. If over 100K Miles, do a Tune-up. It's cheap. You sound like a Plug Wire is grounding out. If it has Coil on Plug, there are Boots, under the Coil Pack. I would start with a Tune-up. Also, use a good Injection Cleaner, from the Parts Store.

The spark plugs are underneath the coils and are good for 100,000 miles. If you do not have a dead skip, don't mess with them, they are expensive. Check your owners manual for maintenance schedule.

After changing the coil pack and spark plug, why is it still skipping?

Timing could have jumped. Could be a bad head gasket also. even possible to be a small hole in piston check the cylinder for compression. Check the fuel injector to that cylinder if you have bad air to gas mixture it will throw a code of misfire change fuel filter check fuel injector to see if clogged. most likely it is the fuel injector .

I'd suspect a sticking injector--car should have set the check engine light. Read the code(s) to progress further. If the coil pack were a problem, it would not be likely to fix itself. If the codes indicate an injector problem, try an injector cleaner in the fuel--worst case, replace the bad injector. The codes should indicate which cylinder to change the injector.

Ignition Coil

Did you also change the plug??Usually wise to change that plug too just in case its fouled out...Also make sure you dont have a water down around the plug area where the coil goes in or any debris..If the coil didnt come with the boot,,then you need to replace that too..And alot of times the cheap aftermarket coils are just not any good..I would look for one from the dealer or look online for a dodge coil that way you dont get @#$%^ by the dealer

Car running on three cylinders with good spark.

unplug the spark plug wires from the coil pack one at a time and see if the engine speed changes. you will also be able to see/hear the spark each time you do that. if you see/hear one that doesn't effect the motor you likely have a failed or failing coil pack.
might be a good idea to wear some type of rubber gloves when you do that so you don't get "zapped".
