1998 gmc yukon 4 wheel drive what does it mean when the number5 cylinder is misfiring and I changed the plug and the wire,just had a full tune up with coil and module,fuel filter! What could be the problem...

cHECK YOUR ANTI-FREEZE LEVELS IT IS PROBABLY LOW. These engine are famous for the in take manifold leaking internally and externally on cylinder # 3 & #5. This will cause the computer to give a misfire code. Tzop up your anti freeze and pressure test the cooling system I can gauruntee you lose pressure and it will be your intake gasket. You will have to replace it the gasket kit cost about $100.00 make sure you but the Fel Pro gasket kit it has been redevelope and made from steel rather than plastic. This will solve your problem and your truck will run much better as well.

White smoke exhaust .

this is usually caused by anti freeze getting into combustion chamber. a blown head gasket will cause this. check the oil and see if anti freeze is getting in it. if its in oil you will see water droplets on oil stick. does the vehicle run bad, does it misfire, are you looseing power. these are the signs of a bad headgasket. does anti freeze disappear in cooling system, does it smoke all of the time!! if so its probably the head gasket, if above symtoms are there.
