Idle Air Control Valve. That can cause lots of problems, does not mean it's related to #4 misfire.

If you have a misfire on Cyl #4 it most definetely is a bad Ignition Coil on that plug. You will need to remove the upper intake to get to it. Go to youtube as they have a video on how to do it. Search under "Ford Escape changing Spark plugs"
