Hello there, many common faults will cause a cylinder 4 misfire with the 2006 Nissan Altima. The most likely faults are the spark plugs, wires, coil, fuel injector, vacuum leak, or low compression in the #4 Cylinder. With a misfire the problem is usually a minor one, but it can also be a serious issue. The best bet would be to have an inspection done of the vehicle before you invest your money in buying it. A qualified Technician such as one from YourMechanic will be able to perform a pre purchase inspection, this inspection will inform you of possible issues and will go over the vehicle looking for faults.
