That's not good - it suggests the coil pack is quite poorly or your crank angle sensor is not well.
Do you have an 'engine fault' light?
The 1.4 engine uses a 'wasted spark' firing sequence, where it fires two spark plugs at the same time. One for the Compression stroke, as normal, and one during the exhaust stroke. This cuts down the number of coils and cabling as you only need 2 coils in the coilpack, but tends to knock out two cylinders at the same time when the coilpack dies.
According to Haynes it fires 1&4 - 2&3 cylinders together.
Ex 1.4 Berlingo Multispace
Which injectors are fired together?
(They're also fired in pairs.)
I have it written down somewhere, but not where I can get to it just now.
Fitted new coil pack, all fine now.
