    replacing all spark plugs?

    SO that is what I would do and not think about it any further. Dealer fixed cylinder 1 issue with coil new coil and plug. Either one could have been defective. No reason what so ever to change the other 3 spark plugs, just like you wouldn't replace the other three coils.
