More than likely the coil pack has gone bad. Its right on top of cylinder five, to remove, just take off the 8mm bolt pull it out and replace. Its around $50.00 and most part stores.

2005 explorer 4.0 eng Service eng. soon light came on took it to autozone. The computer said #5 cylinder missfiring. Put new plugs & wires didn't make a difference. Checked compression this morning...


Changeout the rotor button and cap. the cap has carbon pins under there and wear down from the rotor button. The rotor button sits on the distributor which is easily pulled off. When removing these be sure the plug wires stay in order, Also, use di-electic grease on the plug wires, prevents moisture getting there and run away sparks. CAP/ROTOR button $20 approx.

Feels like the is a missfire


You might have a coil pack causing this. You need to see if there are any codes in PCM to see what cylinder is causing misfire and if there are any other codes. You can have codes with no engine lamp on.

Number 1 cylinder misfire


No the only thing the san would show is a missfire, you need to test the injector and make sure it is getting fuel to the cylinder
