Check the compression in the cylinders comparing them to number 5 cylinder, check for vacuum leaks, snug up the intake manifold bolts, check for proper fuel pressure. Other things to eliminate are, Faulty spark plug 5, Clogged or faulty fuel injector 5, Faulty ignition coil 5, Fuel injector 5 harness is open or shorted, Fuel injector 5 circuit poor electrical connection, Ignition coil 5 harness is open or shorted, Ignition coil 5 circuit poor electrical connection.
