With a real scanner pay close attention to the map sensor!! Yes i know, sounds crazy.
Understand something, just because the dealer sells the model doesn't mean they know how to fix it.
What are the codes.
0305 Cyl 5 misfire detected - everytime

Customer Concern:
Engine is setting misfire codes. Has good spark and have swapped the injectors around. Compression is normal.
Tests/Procedures:
1. Connect a vacuum gauge. If the needle is erratic, check if an exhaust rocker arm has fallen out of place.

2. If so, carbon build-up on the valve is the likely cause.


You need to remove the valve cover which number 5 is and check valve train.
