You can check them with a multimeter.
They should read around 20-30 ohm (can't remember off the top off my head)
The factory manual has the values.

All you need to do is remove the round plug at the auto, identify which pin is which solenoid, then check using the ohm setting on the multimeter.

S5 is a variable solenoid.
I don't know if it can be tested, probably not. At least not without special equipment.

I don't know and I don't have the service manual near me.

The EF-EL factory manual is available for download somewhere.

They also have a habit of testing fine when cold, but when hot (full operating temp) that stop working.
