I see you have posted in another question that the car is an Enclave so the six cylinder engine is a 3.6 liter. This engine had individual coils, not a coil pack so yes you can buy one coil. The number five cylinder is in the rear of the engine (windshield side) last position toward the drivers side. The Delphi part number for the coil is GN10494.
