That code is for a cylinder #5 misfire. I would suggest starting with new plugs and wires, if no help then I would consider a compression check and possibly leak down test or even a faulty injector or computer. Impossible to know which one without seeing car but 90% of the time a good old fashioned tune-up clears that situation up. Remember to clear the code with a scan tool after repair to turn the light off.

Engine light on / runs rough / Sometimes dies Has code p305


Code po305 is # 5 cylinder misfire. Check the spark plug wire and spark plug. use an inline spark tester to check the wire from coil to spark plug. If you have spark,then remove plug to see if it is fouled out. the best time to check for brake or cracked spark plug wiring is at night with engine running and doing a walk around to see if the insulation on wireing is broken or cracked. you will see the wires sparking at night. then replace the wires that are causing the problem.

I have a 2003 vw passat 2.8L while changing the spark plugs I noticed oil in the spark plug holes. After gapping and installing the new plugs I drove the car about 20 mile and the check engine light...


Unfortunately the check engine light could be caused by hundreds of things and yet it could have something to do with your changing of the plugs. Do me a favor and take the car to your local auto parts store and they will check the code for the engine light for you for free. Bring that code back here and I will help you figure out what is causing the light and the slugish engine. Sorry for your problem but I'm sure I can help you get it fixed. Thanks for using FixYa!
