Question about Honda Civic

2 Answers

I need the firing order for a 1987 Honda Civic 1500cc (carburated model). This car has a distributor, but the plug wires connect in a straight line rather than in circular fashion around the distributor cap.

I found an illustration for an 87 Civic 1.5L engine, carbureted. By the looks of it, it's 1-3-4-2 although this graphic shows a round cap. I see the Accord 2.0L does have the plugs in a line, not in a circle. Hope this helps!

1-3-4-2 the cap should have one marked on it. in any event one will be the 1st plug on the cap.

I have a 91 honda civic and need spark plug wire diagram


Fire order
1-3-4-2

Cylinder #1 will be the one closes to the fan belts and so on 1-2-3-4, on the distributor cap there should be a # 1 stamped on it, put cylinder # 1 spark plug wire on that one, install spark plug wire in firing order clockwise on the cap, the cap some time's might even have the firing order on it.

Ned to now wat the firing order for dist cop shood be for a 1987 ford f100 pick-up truck 300sixcylender stick shift model#333


The F100 ended in 1983, so there is some confusion on your 1987 Ford F100. The F150 started in 1983 and was available in 1987, but not the F100. You have this listed under the 1981 Ford F100 category.
The 300 CID = 4.9L In-Line (Straight) 6-Cylinder.
In order to best answer your question I have included both the 1981 F100 4.9L and 1987 F150 4.9L below. The only difference is with the Distributor Cap Configuration and Connections.

For the 1981 F100 300cid=4.9L:
Firing order:
1-5-3-6-2-4
Cylinders:
(back)
...6
...5
...4
...3
...2
...1
(front)
Distributor:
...(back)
.........4..[.]-clip
2
...................1
6
................5
[.]....3

For the 1987 F150 300cid=4.9L:
Firing Order:
1-5-3-6-2-4
Cylinders:
(back)
..6
..5
..4
..3
..2
..1

Distributor:
.......(back)
.................4

Just changed out my spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor. Now the car wont start, what is the problem ?


Recheck the firing order of the spark plugs and wires. you might have connected them wrong. Can't tell you the firing order since I don't know what kind, make, or year of your vehicle.
