Question: why does my spark plug gap keep closing?

my spark plug gap keeps closing on my #4 cylinder, my car then acts like it's being starved of fuel and shuts down at stop lights. my mechanic has change the spark plugs 3 times and they keep closing. code says misfire, he's not sure why the gap keeps closing but stated I may need another motor. $1100 for a motor with a year warranty labor = maybe $2000... Good if needed but I cant afford it.....
