I want to verify visually the spark wire connection at the distributer cap. I know the firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6 and the cylinder order location from AllData of the transverse mount engine is : ...


This appears to be correct, also havent known in my time using alldata for it to be wrong on any occasion so far. I trust that this is the correct fring order and wiring on distributer cap. Are you still having problem or just asking before taking on the task of a tuneup?

I mixed the distributor cables up,so i need the order to correctly connect


If the wires are still in the distributer, AND, if you have a stock intake manifold, the firing order is on the manifold. If it's a V-8, the number 1, 3, 5, & 7 plugs are on the drivers side of the engine. The number 2, 4, 6, & 8 plugs are on the passenger side. The number 1 plug wire can be located by looking at the distributer from the front of the engine and visually looking between the distributer and the number 1 plug. Visualize the distributer as a clock. The number one position should be located between 4 and 5 o'clock and should have the longest wire of those on that side of the distributer.

If the wires have been pulled from the distributer, then, then, remove the rotor cap, turn the engine over slowly until the rotor is pointing to the number 1 plug. Using the firing order on the intake manifold, starting with number 1, replace the wires going clockwise around the distributer.

How to replace distributer cap and rotor button on 96 Acura TL ?


Locate the distributer cap. Mark all your spark plug wires with some tape and number system so they go back in the same position (on the new cap). Remove the spark plug wires from the old cap (after marking them) and lay them to the side. Remove the 2 Torx or Phillips screws from the cap. Lift the cap up and off. The rotor will be directly under the cap. Lift it up and off. This may take a little rocking motion while pulling on it to get it off. Align the new rotor on the shaft and push it on firmly. Place the new cap on and install the 2 screws removed earlier. Install the plug wires on the cap in the order they come off. Ensure the wires are pushed in firmly.

We've replaced the distributor cap and rotor in our 1985 Chevy C10 305 V8 and still have to fire TO the plugs. It won't start


This is a one piece distributor. It has the coil and pickup sensor all built in. Check and see if you have 12 volts on the large red wire that plugs into the cap while the key is on. (The other wire is for a tachometer if you have one). If you have power and there is no spark from your ignition wires, your pickup module is bad in the distributer. Very rarely have I seen a failed coil.

Changed plugs and plug wires and now it wont start? i checked for spark off the distributer all 6 were good?


if your engine run before you changed anything,and you are talking about a 3.0 engine,
you have to be careful changing wires on this engine,
you need toonly change one wire at a time,the distributor cap on this engine is just stupid.
if you look under the cap you'll see that a wire on the one side of the cap actually has a contact that leads to the other side of the cap.
cly 5 cyl 6
cyl 3 cyl 4
cyl 1 cyl 2
front of engine

if your looking at distributor cap from front of engine,
two screws hold down cap.
look at the screw closest to the front,from that screw second hole to the left is #1.
firing order is 123456
#2 wire will be at that front screw on cap,keep installing wires counter clockwise.

We replaced the distributor cap and rotor on our Dodge Ram Van 1500, but one wire popped off as we were working and we aren't sure they are in the right order anymore. How do we find a diagram to help us...


the firing order is usually stamped on the engine itself. Take off the distributer cap and turn the ignition to see which direction the rotor is turning.

The distributer cap has the number 1 plug marked . After finding the firing order, place the wires 1 where the cap is marked then in the direction the rotor is turning (ie:clockwise or couterclockwise). Keep looking . Most every motor I have seen has the firing order maked right on the engine.Or the owners manual ?

Wiring order


Since your distributer cap spins in a clockwise motion, just make sure you start with 1 then 4, then in the full order to make sure the sequence is correct.
