Clear the codes. Swap the coils from 2 & 4 with 1 & 3. If the coils are bad, then the next cel should indicate misfire on 1 & 3. If it is still 2 & 4, then spark plugs are next to look at.

Often poorly done work (e.g. not checking a battery that was in fact dead and blaming it on the ECM) let me come to the decision to fix my cars on my own, including maintenance.
In the end, it saves me a lot.
I had changed the air filters in less than half a minute, changing oil and its filter were done in less than an hour.
~20€ or so for the 3 filters, 50 for a canister of oil that's still got about 2l in it, that's totally okay for me to spend that every second or third year.
Paying the workshop 100€ in addition (some rumors said even 200€) isn't at all.
I lose the rust warranty, but if it rusts too bad in about 10 years or so, the saved money will be by far enough to fix it

Thank you. This is really annoying with under 40K km's. I cleared the code last week, and will see if it returns.
I read somewhere there has to be a certain number of misfires before the CEL lights up?
