The easiest way to locate your starter is to start at the positive battery terminal.Follow that wire to the starter solenoid.on the solenoid there are two big wires one leads to the battery and one leads to the starter (make sure you have a fully charged battery
and if you touch a screw driver across the metal studs of these two terminals and the engine cranks the problem is probably with the solenoid) as for the firing order your best bet is to get a haynes manual for your make and model car and the full easy to follow procedure for determining the firing order will be there (try googling firing order for your car and you might find a procedure for free online)
hope this helps.........Good Luck!

I just changed the spark plugs in my 2004 Ford BA Falcon and now it wont start!

Sounds like you have crossed the spark plug wires...(wrong firing order:) Check with the store where you purchased the new plugs...they should be able to provide the correct firing order...also you must locate cylinder #1 to begin...and confirm the pattern of the firing order...sounds harder than it is...Hope this helps.

Changed the plugs wires and cap and rotor...think I might have screwed the firing order misfire just wont turn over.

the wires to the plugs should not keep the motor from cranking over. If the battery is fully charged the ignition switch should engage the starter. If you think the firing order is wrong you need to determine 1 where is top dead center (the position the motor is in when #1 cylinder is at the top of the compression stroke). 2 what direction does the rotor turn 3 what is the firing order One way to make it easy to rotate the motor is to remove the spark plugs. no compression means no resistance to the starter so the motor should turn over with the key in the start position. If it won't crank over with the plugs out then something is wrong with the starter, battery, starter relay, or ignition switch. I always start with the basics. the battery should have at least 12.5 volts. if it does check the battery terminals. even if the starter is weak you should hear a click when the key is turned to the start position. Once you get the starter to turn over the motor you can tell when the number one cylinder is at top dead center by putting a finger over the spark hole as you crank over. You will feel the compression as the cylinder comes up on the compression stroke. I have used a large socket to slowly turn the motor over and when you are near top dead center you should be able to see the degrees of advance on the timing mark. Set the motor at top dead center then see where the rotor lines up with the wires on the distributor cap. that is where number one cylinder should fire. You then follow around in the direction that the rotor turns and the wires will corispond with the firing order. I always make a mark on the number one spot on the cap with a felt pen. That way you have a fixed reference point. Take care to verify that all the wires are to the proper plugs before trying to start. Take extra care at this point and make sure your firing order and rotor rotation are correct. I would triple check this. The firing order and rotor direction are usually somewhere on the autozone repair web site

Change spark plugs and wires not truck wont start. could firing order be wrong!

You could have mixed up the order of the spark plug cables causing the firing order to be wrong. What is the exact year, make, model, and engine size of your truck?

I changed the plugs and the car started skipping so i changed the plug wires and at first it didn't skip now it is, im thinking i either got the firing order wrong or the feul filter needs changing

If the car ran fine before you made repairs, then I would also assume that you have a plug wire on the wrong plug. If you cant locate the firing order, let me know, will be glad to send it to you.

Need the spark plug cable order for2000honda accord lx 4cylinder

The firing order is; 1-3-4-2 and the rotor moves in a counterclockwise direction. Turn the crank shaft and set the engine at TDC (top dead centre). This ill set the rotor arm pointing at No1 cylinder. From this point you can replace the HT leads in the above order.
