No, can't see how?
Make sure you lubricate spark plug threads with anti seize paste and don't over tighten.. usually hand tighten till plug bottoms + 1 flat of hex.

Sounds like it's you spark plug leads. Depending which engine you have in there, if you have the 2.4L then it is a module.

It could be a bad fuel injector or just a bad connection. Unplug the injector check it and the plug for corrosion. If there is corrosion clean it and apply some dielectric grease to it and plug it back in and see if that helps. There should be a code coming up on the computer if so what code is it?

Make sure the spark plugs are properly gapped (this will cause misfires). Replace all spark plugs wires!! Insure there is no oil inside the spark plug chamber.

Number 5 piston misfiring


It could be caused by a lot of different things, including a fuel injector, spark plug, spark plug wire, low compression, but in most cases it doesnt get to deep. I would start with checking the spark plug wire to cylinder number 5, then the spark plug. Moisture can cause a misfire so make sure the metal contact points are dry.

They are still looking for a cause because it isnt misfiring right now or because they cant find the cause of the stored misfire codes ?
If it is misfiring right now and they cant figure it out then perhaps you should find new mechanics !
I have seen a lot of bad coils on the PT.
Misfire is usually caused by spark plug wires first, spark plugs 2nd, and coil third.
If it isnt misfiring now, spray down the wires with water. If it misfires after that replace the spark plug wires and spark plugs and try again.
If it still misfires then the problem will likely be the coil.
