Cylinder # 5 is the cylinder closest to the left side of the vehicle that is in the rear bank underneath the plennum. Misfires can be caused by may things (plug, wire, fuel, compression, etc...). Check for injector operation and swap the plug from #5 to #3 and see if the miss is still coming from #5 or not. If it misfires in #3, it's the plug. If it stays in #5 than it's a problem with the injector or the compression.

You're coil is more likely the suspect over an injector and is easier to test for. Swap coil that fires #5 cylinder with one of the neighboring coils and drive the vehicle until the check engine light comes on again. If the misfire code follows the coil- then you have a bad coil. This is by far the most common cause of misfire on the Camry V6.

Is that a misfire? P0305 Code - Cylinder #5 Misfire, A P0305 code means that the the car's computer has detected that one of the engine's cylinders is not firing properly.

I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

Default Code P0305

Hi Again, I switched coils as recomended, I switched the center coil with the right side coil, Ran the car for a week before I got a bad code, Now the code is P0302 which is Cyl # 2, I don't know the firing order of this engine, I am guessing that the coil I put in the center position is the bad one? Does anyone know which coil fires which Cyl.

Thanks

#2 is on the front bank and is the coil that is closest to the passenger side. I'm not quite sure where you swapped the coil to, but if you moved it to #2, then you need to replace the coil.

I swaped the center coil with the one to the right of center, The one on the drivers side. Now I get a P0302 error which makes no sense to me, it was cyl # 5 now its cyl # 2, Does anyone know what coil fires what cyl.

thanks
