    yeah, i was thinking maybe fouled plugs on those same cylinders (or maybe a cracked one)

    if you do have that live reading software i would try that first before jumping into replacing plugs

    if the light is flashing there's a code being set so you should be able to see it that way for sure

    Hey Rippy, you might have a suguestion. Coming to Charlotte next week for my wifes best friends wedding we are in, and I really do not like mountains "heights and drop offs". I took 77 a few years back and said I would never to that again, West Virginia and coming out of Virgina was not pleasant for me. I was thinking 75 to 40 and coming across 74. How is that route? Have traveled to Florida many times and took 75 all the way to Fort Myers, only a couple little streches I did not like there, but NOTHING like 77.

    i'm not really that familiar with the 'west of charlotte' area but that sounds (and looks from the maps) to be a fine route

    if you wanted to stay on interstates you could stay on 26 south/east a bit longer into south carolina then come back east/north on I-85

    Re: I am so done with this 2005 SRX......

    Finally caught the code using the live software. P0305

    I have already replaced coils 1 & 3 and now it looks like coil or spark-plug on 5?

    A code P0305 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
    • Faulty sparkplug or wire
    • Faulty coil (pack)
    • Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
    • Faulty fuel injector
    • Burned exhaust valve
    • Faulty catalyticconverter(s)
    • Running out of fuel
    • Poor compression
    • Defective computer
    I guess I can start from the top and work my way down.. Change Coil & Plug first on 5 and replace the spark plugs on 1 & 2.

    What are the odds that so many coils would go bad all on the same side of the engine? I always felt it was fuel related and fuel injector is also on the list. Couldn't the fuel cause misfires on all cylinders?

    Re: I am so done with this 2005 SRX......

    we've seen a bunch of these engines with one or two coils bad... three bad is not common and especially not on the same head

    i would think something common to all three might cause this, but i'm not really sure what ... could there be a problem with the head or something?

    but you've got the right idea for now... change coil and plug on 5 and the other two plugs you didn't change before (you had a typo i think and typed 2 instead of three at the end of your last post... you had 3 at the top of the post)

    anyway start with that and go from there... if they go bad again in the near future you've got something else to look for

    i would think that the most likely outcome is that just the coil went bad and you'll be fine after changing it and the three plugs

    Thanks for your concern. I am replacing coil # 5 tomorrow and changing all 6 plugs with genuine AC Delco parts. If this does not solve the problem with the studdering I am just going to trade it in and get a different vehicle. Whats funny is that this car is causing me so much grief while my STS has been trouble free for 4 years and has never had a problem. If the new SRX had 3rd row I would consider staying with Cadillac but it does not and with 3 kids and the occasional mother in-law I need the seating.

    Spark Plugs definately were not in the best condition... Some worse than the others. Going on a 100 mile trip later this evening and will report back in the plugs and changed coil make a difference.
