P0305 is misfire at cylinder #5. Possible causes are, bad spark plug, bad coil on plug at cylinder #5. If it were mine I first would change the sparkplugs than I would move the #5 coil to to another cylinder to see if the miss and related code moves. If the miss doesn't move I would suspect the #5 fuel injector. Also if you replaced the coils with non Ford aftermarket parts there maybe issues with those.
