Escape is in trouble :(

Winter killed it. This morning the water pump belt was screeching for a good 30 seconds, a good reminder not to forget the block heater again. The check engine light is on, and it feels like there's an intermittent misfire. Didn't go away when the engine warmed up, so I'll have to go out and scan for codes later. It also won't rev beyond 3200 RPM or so when the transmission is engaged.

Yup, misfire. P0316 (misfire on first 1000 revs) and P0304 (misfire cylinder 4).

I swapped coil 4 with coil 5 to see if the misfire would move, but now the Check Engine light won't come on! I just spent the last half hour driving around the block trying to get a code. I don't know. I'm going to go out later with contact cleaner to clean the electrical connector, and maybe "stretch" the spring in the boot for a tighter fit.
