Thank you again,
Ok that is good to hear! But, here is how I think. Now that you replaced #5 cylinder spark plug with another new spark plug, was the plug NG or you tugging on wires and generally pushing stuff around that 'fixed' this problem?
I would get a multimeter and check the plug out.
Set it at the lowest Ohm setting and then check for resistance between the electrode and the sprak plug's threaded body. ANY resistance means the plug is NG.
