Question about 1999 Nissan Quest
I have a 1999 Nissan Maxima shows on OBDII test that #5 cylinder misfires. I was told by mechanic that the ignition coil ( with power transistor) on #5 is bad. I cleaned the electrode on the coil and have great improvement. Problem is, sometimes when idling it will still vibrate as if to shut down but doesn't lower the rpm under 500. But when in netrual the problem goes away and when driven over 20 mph. At taken off it will at most times misfire as if running on 5 cyls. Retook the diagnostic test and again shows #5 cyl. misfire - Code 305. It baffles me that if there is a misfire when idling in drive, why doesn't it happen when in netrual. Please, any help will be greatly appreciated. This is the first problem ever showed up on this car after 70K miles.
I have same problem on #5 change coil and plugs still the same now I ordered a knock sensor hope that would help us both also the pipe runs under throttle body was clogged. Cleaning it too hope it help

You need to replace the coil pack on cyl 5 . it wont happen noticeable in neutral because their is no load on the motor.
