misfire cylinder on #5 Sign In

I got a P0305 cylinder misfire on #5 code from a check engine light. I was driving home and realized the check engine light is off now. Does this mean its just a fluke, or can i still test the spark plugs for fault, fuel enjectors, wires, etc. Or would you not be able to tell?

year make model engine etc.
There MAY be some information in freeze frame - also tell us maintenance history....
Gotta do something type - then add a bottle of 'techron' and keep an eye on CEL.
STOCK is best.

whoops sorry thought i put that

2005 chrysler town and country 3.8L V6

There have been a lot of electrical problems. The turn signal grounding wire was rusted apart, the parking lights too, and the horn grounding wire was rusted off to the point they did not work. I had to have a mechanic diagnose and find those problems. Before that i dont know, i just bought the van about 2 weeks ago.


How would i know if its the fuel injectors is to use cleaner on them if the light turned off though?

Do you still feel a misfire? If not, then it probably wouldn't hurt to check for worn out plugs and wires. They did have a TSB on ignition issues.

THE SOFTWARE IS AVAILABLE ON TechCONNECT.

FOR MARKETS OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA, THE SOFTWARE AND REPROGRAMMING INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE ON ITIL/ISIS CD/DVD JUNE, 2004.

If the vehicle operator describes or experiences the Symptom/Condition, perform Repair Procedure 1 and if necessary, Repair Procedure 2.
