What is the firing order for the 1994 ford taurus 3.8 engine, have just replaced cap and rotor, need order, thought I marked them but engine will not start. Perhaps I was wrong in the order.
Not trying to insult your intelligence, I'm going to get pretty basic here,
Looking at the Front of the engine, the spark plug order is 1, 2, 3, and 4. Front to back.
Looking at the distributor, it has two mounting screws for the distributor cap. One is close to the engine, the other screw is on the other side.
Looking at the distributor cap screw, on the Far side away from the engine, Number 1 spark plug is on the tower to the Left of it.
To the right of this distributor cap screw, is Number 2 spark plug tower.
The rotor turns clockwise.
Again, looking at the distributor from a top view, there is a distributor cap screw at the top, (Close to engine), and a distributor cap screw at the bottom.
Drawing an imaginary line from the top screw to the bottom screw, Number 1 spark plug wire goes to the Left, of the bottom mounting screw.
Firing Order is 1-3-4-2
The rotor turns Clockwise, (To the right)
