Your engine rotates counterclockwise. In that case you install your wires counter clockwise on the distributor. The number 1 connector on the distributor cap is marked 1. You connect the number 1 wire which is the one in the left side. Then go counterclockwise connecting them in this order.

Ignition lead sparks without sparkplug but when i connect sparkplug it doesnt spark


Are you earthing the body of the spark plug? Sorry, but I don\'t know what level of electrics or mechanics your at. If you hold the ht lead which is not advisable the spark will jump to its easiest route. Let me know we can then take it from there

I need to know the correct way. in which to remove spark plugs


Well you need a Rachet set with a spark plug socket for your Car. Then place the socket on the spark plug after removing the wire and turn counter clockwise to remove it. Counter clockwise is turning left if looking at a clock. Be sure not to break the spark plug wires when removing them. You must hold them tightly at the end and pull them off slowly and carefully. Once you have the spark plug end of the wire off,, put it aside but remember which spark plug it goes too. It's very important not to mix them up.

When putting your new spark plugs in be sure to set the gap correctly or buy a set of spark plugs with preset gaps. Then place the new plug into the hole and turn them clockwise to tighten by hand at first them with your sparkplug socket and rachet until the new sparkplug is snug. Not to tight. Just snug as it will tighten a bit more on it's own. Then replace the spark plug wire carefully.

I am trying to start my engine on my 1985 4runner it turns over but doesnt catch on.. what should I do..


'85's mostly had 4 cylinder engines, 22R, 22RE and 22REI. Remove a sparkplug wire and stick a sparkplug into the end. Hold the sparkplug, preferably with a well insulated glove, against a good metal part (exhaust manifiold will do, no paint or rust) nearby being carefull to stay clear of the fan. Now have someone turn the key and when the engine turns, see if a spark is jumping across the sparkplug your are holding...snap,...snap..snap....is what you should see and hear. If not, your ignition is not creating spark. Remove the center wire of the distributor and try to put the sparkplug on the end of that wire and repeat the previous test. If you get spark that means the distributor cap is not transferring the spark thru it to the wires that go down to your sparkplugs. Remove and replace the distributor cap and the rotor inside paying special attention to mark the wires and where they plug into the cap. The rotor only goes on one way, same with the cap. If you dont get spark coming to the center wire of the distributoe cap your ignitin module may be bad, a good time to have a shop run a test on it. Before heading to the shop, be sure to check your fuses. Maybe you should do that first as it is the simplest. If you have spark at the sparkplug and still no starting, a small amount of gasoline poured into the intake ( please dont pour a cup of gas into it! Just a spoonfull or so). With the sparkplug wires inplace, crank the motor. If it kicks and then goes back to cranking with no results, your fuel isnt getting to the intake. Could be a fuel pump (common) or a plugged fuel filter. The filter is easy, replace it. To test for fuel pressure you will need to locate the fuel line coming to the intake, carburated or injected, the inlet can be loosened and have someone turn the key on and you should see some fuel leaking around the fitting you only loosened. DO NO REMOVE IT-JUST LOOSEN. If you have fuel pressure your problem needs a mechanic. If no fuel pressure it's time to check the fuel pump thru the access panel under the backseat. BE SURE TO TIGHTEN THE INLET FUEL FITTING AT THIS POINT. Good luck.
REMEMBER- GASOLINE IS VERY DANGEROUS. DO NOT PERFORM THESE DIAGNOSTICS UNLESS YOU FEEL TRAINED ENOUGH TO DO SO AND ALWAYS WITH AN EXTINGUISHER ON HAND.

Won't start turns over getting fuel and fire


make sure you are getting spark through the sparkplug wires. a sparkplug tester is the easiest way, or take a wire off one of the plugs try starting it and have another person watch the wire to see if a spark is coming off the wire to the sparkplugNOTE set the wire close to the sparkplug but leave a small gap between plug and wire so you can see the sparks. if not getting spark check all fuses first, otherwise the coil could be bad. or it could have coilpacks and one could be badNOTE every coilpack has two studs for wire, sometimes only one side of coilpack works if so it is bad both sides haft to work.
