doing what you are doing is not the smartest move
instead go google and type in --firing order for (make and model) engine
follow the firing order and rotation direction after you set no 1 piston on tdc compression stroke
Why what you are doing is not smart. when you get into trouble you will have no idea of where you are and neither will anyone else
set it right the first time
How did you make the determination that all the firing orders are wrong? No matter what the source was, the firing order should be the same no matter who you got the information from. Am I correct on this.....that everybody keeps giving you the same firing order??? As a point of emphasis I would like to know if you recieved conflicting specifications regarding the firing order. You may want verify the calibration of the distributor's position. At TDC the distributor rotor should be pointing to #1 cylinder terminal on the distributor cap, or 90 degrees across from it. Please verify.
Firing order for 2003 (B6) Audi S4 4,2l V8 engine is: 1 - 5 - 4 - 8 - 6 - 3 - 7 - 2 Cylinder no.# 1 is first one from right front side of the car, and cylinder no.# 4 is the fourth one (front to rear) on the right bank of cylinder block. See picture below:
Looking at the crank shaft pulley, you should see a timing mark on the front gear cover and then there will be marks on the pulley. Line up these marks using a ratchet and socket on the front crankshaft pulley bolt. Next remove the distributor cap and look at the rotor button and determine which spark plug the button is pointing at. Find exactly which engine you have in this car. 1977 novas came with a straight 6 and a v8. If a v6 has been installed you need to know which one as the chevy engines have very different firing orders. You need to know the firing order to check the timing correctly. Be sure the firing order is right before going any further.
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
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.
