    Missfire on number 5 cylinder

    Hopefully someone can help me on this one....

    Got an error code 305 for my 2005 3.6 CTS. The car is missing at idle and also at higher speed but doesn't seem as bad. Removed coil and spark plug on #5 and noticed the plug and the coil were corroded/oxidized...thought it was obvious that one or both were bad and purchased and replaced them both....manufacturer plug and BWD coil. Noticed that the tube that surrounds the coil and spark was also corroded inside, but didn't see how to remove it so I didn't. Reset code at battery and started car, but car still has same issues. Just wondering if that tube being oxidized is why I'm still getting misfires???? and if so, is there an easy way to replace it

    Thanks for any help.....

    Try swapping the coil boot with a different cylinder and see if the misfire follows

    If you are 100% sure that you where actually working on 5th cylinder and not on some other one than only thing left is ECM or something weird with wiring or Injector
