COMPUTER GIVES ME A P0305(#5 MISFIRE). IVE REPLACED BOTH COIL PACKS, WIRES & PLUGS. ITS NOT A CONSTANT MISS. IT RUNS FINE FOR A COUPLE OF MILES & ALL OF AT ONCE IT STARTS MISFIRING & THE CHECK ENGINE COMES ON. THE INJECTOR ON #5 SEEMS TO BE CLICKING LIKE THE OTHERS. COULD IT BE THE FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR, CRANKSHAFT LOCATION SENSOR, OR CLOGGED INJECTOR? ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREAT. THANKS

Sparkplug was replaced now check the compression and injector for no.5

Misfiring can be caused by worn or fouled spark plugs, a weak spark (weak coil, bad spark plug wire), loss of compression, vacuum leaks, anything that causes an unusually lean fuel mixture (lean misfire), an EGR valve that is stuck open, dirty fuel injectors, low fuel pressure, or even bad fuel.
