it's likely the coils aren't bad... use a spark tester to determine if you have spark on the #4 cylinder, if there is spark, then all you need is a new spark plug... get a second opinion, take it to another shop if you can't fix it.

I would follow what Frank said, take it to a Honda Technician to repair.

start by checking each individual coil, check the resistance in the coils and see how many you need

you dont have to buy all 4. And for the sparkplugs just get them in a import parts store their usually cheaper than your regular autoz-- or checkers--- where i live the name is BAP imports .

you need to get the car tuned, hondata flash pro is a great way to do that, and you can get a used flashpro for about 500, add another 100 for the tune, and you will probably fix the issue, as well as have a tuning program to make more power, better mpg, and even out your AFR, ignition timing, cam angle, vtec engagement, all that. well the flash pro is for 06-11 civic si, if you have an older civic, hondata prob makes a tuning program for it, and it would probably be cheaper then.. changing the spark plugs is always a good deal, and consider buying aftermarket coil packs, as they will help with mpg and power being as it will burn the fuel more effectivly.

usually that just means the #4 coil needs to be changed but you could go ahead and do all the spark plugs just to be safe. if you get a code that says intermittent misfire then you would need a full tune up or even a distributor if its b-series engine.
