1996 Chevy Lumina LS - History Codes?

I recently had two fuel injectors replaced, It was mis-firing hince the need for replacement. A few days after I got the car, I went to get it e-checked, it failed, check engine light!

The computer stated the car was misfiring in cylinder 5. I then called the shop it was repaired at. The shop assured me it was a history code in the computer since the check engine light was off when i left the shop. (didn't come on until the e-check)

The shop also stated that if i started the car about 20 times it would go away.
(20 cycles is the term i believe he used.)

Now could this be a history code? I find it funny, only the one history code is showing up... yet two fuel injectors were replaced do to the misfiring. Whats going on here? Could it in-fact be a history code, or could it be the injector?

PS: the check engine light is currently off.

Ok, the code is PO305.

The check engine light is back on, and as you said my wrist is about worn out. The car even feels like it's misfiring, but the shop keeps on saying its a history code.


UPDATE: After giving the shop you're words (reply), they didn't know mis-firing was a problem... Now I guess they are going to check it out...

It would still be nice to know whats what when i go back to the shop in about 30 mins.

Thanks.
