when it idles on 5 cylinders, shoot some starting fluid into the throttle body. If the engine smooths out, you know you have a fuel delivery problem. If nothing changes, you have a spark problem...possibly a grounded spark plug wire or bad dist. cap.

It could be simply that the injector connect is not fully seated. Reseat it and make sure to feel a good click when you do.

Most people find they communicate much better when they use sentences. A sentence stats with a capital letter and ends with a period.
