If you're sure the plug and wire are fine, next thing to do is remove and inspect the coil pack. Look it over carefully, and if you see any cracks, it's junk. If it seems fine, then i'd suspect a faulty fuel injector. You could swap the #5 injector with the #4 or 6, clear the code, and wait for it to come back. When it does, see if the misfire is still on #5, or if it moved to the cylinder you put the #5 injector in. If it moved, you know the injector is failing.
