What are the specs for a 1998 Chevy Cavalier Connecting Rod?

Connecting Rod's are VERY SPECIFIC for each engine. In Addition to getting the Right STROKE, Piston Pin Size, and Crankshaft Size, you need to make sure to get the Correct Bearings for the Crank. If you are not going to remove the Crank from the Engine, your BEST Option is going to be Purchasing a NEW Push Rod.

I am having trouble fiquiring out which wire goes to which plug. The wires are different lengths and the correct wire length has to go specifically with the correct plug. I have the firing order dia

The firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6
Cyl #1 is front left when looking at engine front to back
left coil pack connects to cyls. 5-2
center coil pack connects to cyls. 3-6
right coil pack connects to cyls. 4-1
It doesn't matter which connector on the coil you use just that the cylinder is connected to the proper coil pack (the coil fires both plugs at the same time, twice per each full 4 stroke cycle)

If i have a 1996 chevy cavalier i have the firing order for the spark plugs but need the order for the distributor or ignition coil

Firing Orders
  • Sending Units And Sensors
  • Starting System
  • GM Cavalier/Sunfire 1995-2000 Repair Guide


    See Figures 1 and 2
    To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement.
    If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes to reflect how your engine is wired.
