Why is it #5 most of the time?
I have not heard of a specific reason for # 5 on the Lambdas...

but an example... on the Trailblazers, Envoys, Rainiers, Ascenders-- the GMT-360's with the Inline 6...
Many had issues with misfires on cylinder 4 or 5 or both.... sometimes it was the coil-- sometimes the plug.
Turns out this area was right below the seal of the hood and cowl. Strong rain- or snow buildup- water would drip- the water got past the seal on the coil- and fill up the plug hole with water...

Torq converter or Coil Pack (3400 vs 60)

I have a 2010 Saturn Outlook with the exact same symptoms described above. Transmission Shop says Torque converter, Mechanic says Torque converter, however I am not convinced. I have had Plugs 2/4/6 replaced, however I dont believe 1/3/5 have been since before I owned the vehicle. I've seen some people post that coil packs on 5, go bad. Could this be the case? I'd hate to shell out 3400 for a rebuilt trans, only to find out it was a $60 coil pack.
