Distributor cap diagram, 2001 Ford Ranger 2.3L 4 cyl?

I performed the ultimate spark plug wire blunder and don't have arepair manual. I know the order is 1342, but I don't know where tostart and in which direction to plug in the wires. I'm in the middle ofreplacing the wires, so I don't know what order to put them on thedistributor.

    I got it figured out! I finally took a flash photo to see the diagram on the distributor, and it doesn't match with any of your diagrams. Maybe I'm just interpreting incorrectly, but if you're looking at the distrib from the front of the truck, it looks like this:
    2 3
    4 1
    (2 is passenger rear)

I have a 1991grand am it missing on the number 1&4 i have change the distributor cover sparks plugs both coils ignition module. had the compression tested it good at a shop by a mechanic they can't find...


Assuming you gapped the spark plugs correctly, and got the correct wires from the distributor cap to the correct spark plug (believe me, this is a common error people make) it sounds as if it has "jumped time." If you don't have one, get a Chilton/Haynes manual for this car. The troubleshooting section will give you, in descending order, most likely cause of your difficulty. Another idea, is that your distributor has lost the crank shaft pin. But I'd look to the distributor to plug wires first. ( My father-in-law, who has rebuilt many engines, made this simple error on a 4 cyl Ford. Didn't realize it till I showed him the diagram in the repair manual.)

Picture of firing order


See if the spark plug wire numbers are visible where they connect to the distributor cap. find the #1 mark on the distributor cap and you will be able to see the firing order. The firing order may be in raised numbers on the intake manifold too.

No spark to engine 1991 ford pickup


It can be faulty or dirty spark plug itselfd.Also for reference get the fuel level checked.Is the fuel tank is empty or near to empty.
Try cleaning the spark plugs and then see if that is helpin.On some cases the black carbon layer gets collected on the spark plugs and that causes the problem,so cleaning the plugs help.But if its not helping,then spark plug has to be replaced.Spark plugs get power from ignition coil to ignite sparks.If ignitioncoils are faulty then also there will no spark.--------------

To troubleshot and confirm the issue,i suggest you to go through the help links provided below,check the procedure and it will help you to confirm the issue in your case.

Change my spark plugs and distrubutor cap and the 85 ranger want start


You may have got the spark plug wires out of sequence.
Reseat the coil wire going to the center of the distributor cap Check the spark plug wires at the distributor against the firing order as follows:
The spark plug firing order is 1 - 4 - 2 - 5 - 3 - 6 The distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE The engine cylinders / spark plugs are numbered :
firewall 3 - 6 2 - 5 1 - 4 front

I need the correct firing order diagram for a 1982 ford f150 351 windsor please help at least a link to a site



The firing order is ( 1 - 3 - 7 - 2 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 8 )

The distributor rotor turns COUNTERCLOCKWISE

The marked # 1 position on the distrubutor cap faces to the REAR and slightly towards the drivers side

The engine cylinders / spark plug locations are numbered :


firewall

4 - 8

3 - 7

2 - 6

1 - 5

front

If someone has altered the disstributer, pull #1 plug, put finger over hole, turn engine over until compression on that cyl, line up timing marks (ball park only) and rotor will be pointing at the correct terminal for #1 cylinder plug wire connection, in the cap.

I need a wiring diagram showing wiring from spark plugs to distributor for a 1994 ranger v6 3.0


Use the diagram below and just match up the colors of the cylinders to the distributor cap for proper firing order. So starting at the black dot on cap and moving to the right the next cylinder is 4 the 2 the 5 the 3 then 6.
