Put in a new spark plug set (might as well do all of them) and new spark plug wires. They're wear items and eventually have to be changed, so now's a good time. You might also change the cap and rotor - they're what trigger the plugs to fire. If they're corroded or worn down (which does happen) it will cause problems. I'd lean more toward the plug and wire though - if the cap and rotor are worn, I'd expect that all the cylinders would be firing funny.

Misfired cylinder 6, replaced coil, plug Misfired cylinder 5, replaced coil, plug Misfired unsure which yet, all of these happening within a week. It will run fine for a day or so after rep

change all plugs with proper ones - they are picky for some reason - do not change number or brand from original - coils were probably ok, - get some injector cleaner and run through it but check for exhaust leak at e g r tube - is a common over looked cause of misfire - a thing to keep in mind is misfire isn't always spark issue. hope I was of some help

Clylinder 5 is misfiring on my 2003 Cadillac Seville

Well, it could be many things. I had this happen to my buick lesabre recently, except it was misfire on number 1. I changed out the spark plugs and wires and that did the trick. If you know that your plugs and wires are still good, make sure that the plug wire is seated right on the plug end and the coil end. I had a friends car that said had this issue. The wire had came loose from vibrations. Also, just because the wire looks good on the outside, it could have a crack on the inside. So check over your number 5 wire...make sure it is nice and tightly seated. If it is, then it is time to replace your plugs and wires. I would recommend doing all of them and not just number 5. Because if one is on it way going out, the others and not far behind.

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.

Number 5 cylinder misfire on 2002 impala.

Swap the number five injector with another then clear the code if the misfire changes to the cylinder you swapped with that injector is bad.

Cylinder number 5 is misfiring. Check spark plug, spark plug wire and ignition coil for the number 5 cylinder. The number 5 cylinder is the closest to the front of the car on the drivers side. With engine running in dark (at night) take a spray bottle of water and lightly mist spark plug wires and coil and look for arcing. Autozone will test coil for free.
