New user here. I bought 2005 Accord V6 engine for my son as I never owned a Honda vehicle before (He wanted a Honda). After a few months, the Check Engine light came on and this is what it found with these trouble codes. Anyone can tell me what do I need to check this problems? Much appreciated!

If this were mine, I would pull the coils on 1 and 5 as well as the sparkplugs. If you have a compression gauge I would also check compression. Visually inspect the connector and the coils carefully and make sure they look good and there is no carbon tracking and the connector pins are not broken and no corrosion.

How does the car run at idle, can you hear missing at idle.

Someone said check coils with a voltameter…how do I do that?
There are 3 connections, 12v positive, ground, and a signal wire. The outside pins are ground and 12v and the center is the signal that tells the coil to fire. You can measure the outside pins resistance, all the coils should be the same.

The engine has to be off and you remove the connector and test across the 2 outside connections on the resistance scale.
