Had time to work on the truck again this morning, it was still running rough, had to take O/D off when driving as i could feel the shake in 5th gear when the torque converter was no longer taking out the shaking. Still misfire p0305, pulled #5 spark plug and found the tip is white. For the hell of it pulled #3 spark plug and it looked normal as it should seeing these were just replaced 500 miles ago. Switched #3 and #5 spark plugs and truck runs like a champ this morning. Sooo my guess is that seeing how #3 plug is fine its not a fuel delivery problem, White spark tip means lean, so i am guessing i have a badly clogged or bad fuel injector on cylinder #5. If it was plenum gasket i would guess i would be seeing oil on the spark plugs? Please let me know your thoughts, truck does run like a beast right now, however i know it probably wont last. If you do think it is fuel injector for #5 cylinder, please let me know how to change this.
