Hey so I just checked my scanner and it told me I have a cylinder five misfire I bought a spark plug and an ignition coil and will be replacing them today. The check engine light comes and goes. Could this be a fuel tank issue or am I overthinking this. What could be the issue? Thanks for the help. 05‘ ZHP

I changed the spark plug and coil for the corresponding cylinder and I drove the car hard and the misfire and check light didn’t come back but let’s see I’ll drive it for a few days and see what happens :)
Thanks!
