My sincere apologies for the extremely delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions.

I have only been a free contributor to this site for the past 4-months.

I do not know if you still need this information, but I am going ahead and answering it anyway.


1. Non Turbo =VG30E. Turbo = VG30ET. In any case the Engine Cylinder numbers, Firing Order, and Distributor Connections are the same.

For the 3.0L:
Firing Order:
1-2-3-4-5-6
Cylinders:
(back of engine)
5--------6
3--------4
1--------2
(front of engine)
Distributor:
....(back)
.6......5......4
.|.......|........|
V......V......V
|..................|
|..................|
^.......^.......^
.|........|........|
1.......2.......3
....(front)

2. I am not sure what what "cam adjustments" you were looking for. I am sure you probably have taken care of that or found what you were looking for. However, in most cases the person is really asking about the Timing issue.

Again, my sincerest apologies:

Firing order 1994 iszuzu trooper 3,2 sohc


its a V6
Order: 1-2-3-4-5-6 Distributorless Ignition System
outside usa , ive not a clue.
and i bet you are.

3,2, tells me (not USA) comma for decimals.was the clue.

EFI systems vary world wide)
the firing order on ours is per above, im not sure how many 3.2v6 are made world wide, with different crank /cams.
seems there are 3 if you read the wiki......

there is a gm v6 LG6 is 3.1L and isuzu v6 (x2) 3.2L
the real Isuzu is called 6VD1 engine
later years GM 4.3L
my guess is 6VD1 or W

and 6VD1W. twin cam. introduced in 1996 on troopers.

76 degree V 6's
per the wiki
The feature either a belt-driven SOHC or DOHC valvetrain. Later versions feature direct ignition as well as gasoline direct injection. These engines are notable for their early adoption of gasoline direct injection technology and also for their uncommon 75° cylinder head bank angle.


before i work on and engine i learn what is there first.
as you can see wide variances there are.
post country first. then if single or twin cams.

but the firing order is dictated by cam and crank geometries.

I have a 91 300zx non turbo won't start


Are you sure the new belt didn't jump time? How was the belt tensioner when you replaced yhe belt? Did your water pump leak onto or into your crank sensor?Are you sure you have proper fuel pressure?When you replaced the timing belt, did you make sure to find top dead center on cylinder 1 ? Just lining up the timing marks may not have worked if this is indeed what you did.If you had the crankshaft rotated 180 degrees, your motor would be trying to fire on the exhaust stroke, instead of the compression stroke. To find T.D.C. disconnect your battery,rotate your crankshaft until the piston that is marked #1 in your firing order is at the top of its stroke, this can be accomplished by carefully inserting a wooden or plastic dowel into the sparkplug hole of cylinder#1. The dowel will rise with the piston and at the point where it starts to fall will be T.D.C. Now your timing marks should line up,and you will then be on the compression stroke. good luck! hope this helps

You have Nissan's VG30DE engine in your car. If you go to www.ttzd.com (Twin Turbo Z's of Dallas), you'll find Tech articles for the 300ZX (the non-turbo version is the same engine that you have). One of the articles is the full timing belt service job. I believe it was done on a twin turbo, but for purposes of the timing system, the turbo and non-turbo are the same. It'll give you all the info, pictures, tool lists, and step by step instructions that you could want or need.
