    #5 Engine misfire with horrible shaking. Please help!!!

    I have a cylinder #5 misfire. I have already changed all 6 plugs, the coil on cylinder #5 that is misfiring, and the injector. I know that is the cylinder by running a scanner and it repeatedly come back with the same code after being cleared. Also while accelerating the engine light is solid when settling into a speed say 60mph the light starts blinking. The idle is rough half the time and the car shakes horribly! Any ideas???

    Swap the coil pack with cylinder 5 and 6. If the problem follows the coil pack, then change that out. If not then it maybe something else, just report back.

    Swapping coil packs of cylinders 5 and 6 will only take a few minutes as you don't need to remove the upper intake.

    I already did that before I changed the coil. The problem didn't follow but I replaced it anyways just to be sure.

    I have the same problem with my 04 cts but with #2 cylinder I have changed the coil, spark plugs, fuel injector and have tested if it is grounded. I finally gave in and took it to the dealership and they are telling me that the ECM is bad so that is 900.00 going to that. I hope it fixes the problem.

    ----------

    Oh ya my car has 107,000 miles and the dealership told me that they tried to get into the computer but that the computer would not let them in the program.
