Can a bad coil pack lead to flooded cylinders?

So this might sound really stupid, especially since I'm talking about my wrx, but I'm sitting in a parking lot currently and I'm not apart of any subaru forums yet and can't post, and I'm desperate for some immediate help so I don't have to get towed far as ****.

I got a fault code of cylinder 4 misfiring, turns out somehow my coil pack freaking came unscrewed and fell out. I drove about 4 or 5 miles before I fixed it in a parking lot, but now the engine is still running rough and I'm still getting a misfire code.

Is it possible that just driving it that far would cause the cylinder to flood? And how bad would it be to unplug the injector and drive it for 30 minutes, let it evaporate overnight?

More likely you have a fouled sparkplug. Pull it and see how it looks.

Yeah I was afraid you'd say that. It's a boxer engine, and it's the worst plug to get to on the block, there's about an inch and a half of clearance between the valve cover and the frame so it's almost impossible to get out without unmounting the engine and jacking it an inch, which ain't happening in a parking lot. Dammit, why doesn't infiniti make a v6 awd wagon?
