I presume its running all be it on 3 cylinders so we can presume its getting fuel. Need to find out if cylinder is getting a spark. If it is then its a good chance its something serious with that cylinder, piston or valves perhaps. :(

Not an expert on this and basing it more on TS/JTS experience. If not the spark, coil pack then perhaps the injector?

What is missing on Cylinder 1? You need:

Compression,
Fuel
Ignition

Find out which one you are missing and then you will be able to diagnose it much quicker. You seem to be chasing an ignition problem. A decent mechanic would not have "replaced the plugs three times, replaced the coils and then tried re-earthing the ECU".

What good would re-earthing the ECU do to solve a misfire on one cylinder? Have you gone to quick fit or something.

Find a better garage and don't pay a penny. Get them to put the old bits back on.

A good mechanic would have tested ignition by pulling the plug out and holding it against the block and watching for a spark. They would also test compression with a compression tester.

Mito 1,4 tb s remapom. Zlyhanie valca 1.
Vyskúšali sme zástrčky (tri sady), nové balíčky cievok, momentálne skúšam ďalšie uzemnenie pre ECU. #
Prosím, pomôžte, pretože používanie môjho miestneho mechanika stojí náklady :(

How did you solve the problem ? I have the same on my Mito

Sounds suspiciously like a Multiair unit failure but without the codes that is not a definitive answer.
