A new four-point implicit block multistep method is developed for solving systems of first-order ordinary differential equations with variable step size. The method computes the numerical solution at four equally spaced points simultaneously. The stability of the proposed method is investigated. The Gauss-Seidel approach is used for the implementation of the proposed method in the PE(CE)^m mode. The method is presented in a simple form of Adams type and all coefficients are stored in the code in order to avoid the calculation of divided difference and integration coefficients. Numerical examples are given to illustrate the efficiency of the proposed method.
