Unless your computer in your car is faulty... the check engine light came on because it, or one of your vehicle's many sensors detected something within your vehicle was not operating under preset factory conditions. Fortunately, the error code that was extracted was indeed a cylinder # 1 misfire, which is fairly basic. Could be a bad spark plug, wire, etc. or you may have gotten some condensation inside the plug boot. Your mechanic did indeed clear the code, but drive it for awhile and see if it repeats. Normally with a cylinder misfire, you'll notice a small stutter when you accelerate or idle. If your Check Engine light returns, have the codes extracted once more. If the same cylinder is misfiring, have him replace the spark plug and wires.

First check spark plugs/wires/distributor cap (tune up). Also would be good idea to use fuel injector cleane and change fuel filter and O2 sensor.
Hope that helps

Testimonial: "thanks for the info. I worked like a charm"
SOURCE: 02' Ford escape 6 cylinder:
Although you say you have coils misfiring, it sounds like you are not sure.
Trade the coils on cylinder 4 and 5 with coils on 2 and 3. Erase the codes and try to run the engine again. If the misfire code comes up on 2 and 3 this time, the coils are definitely the problem. If the code comes up for 4 and 5 again, there is something else besides the coils that is causing the misfire on those two cylinders.
Things to check: sticking or faulty EGR valve, vacuum leaks on intake manifold gasket near or between the runners for cylinders 4 and 5, clogged fuel injectors, a bad ground for the powertrain control module (PCM or computer), wiring problems to the coils.
