First of all make sure the battery is fully charged and is holding a charge then if you can get it started and while it is running take the positive side cable of the battery off if it dies then it could be the alternator also check the belt for slipping because this will make the voltage in the alternator drop and the battery will not charge completely

My cabrio wont start it will crank but not fire


When you squirt water on plug wires and the car stalls, that means that your plug wires are bad. PLUG WIRES (not rotor, cap, or any sensor).
Replace your spark plug wires with new, and you should be fine.

I cant locate the small spout connector


Did you replace the cap? If so you have the spark plug wiring wrong most likely.

I mixed the distributor cables up,so i need the order to correctly connect


If the wires are still in the distributer, AND, if you have a stock intake manifold, the firing order is on the manifold. If it's a V-8, the number 1, 3, 5, & 7 plugs are on the drivers side of the engine. The number 2, 4, 6, & 8 plugs are on the passenger side. The number 1 plug wire can be located by looking at the distributer from the front of the engine and visually looking between the distributer and the number 1 plug. Visualize the distributer as a clock. The number one position should be located between 4 and 5 o'clock and should have the longest wire of those on that side of the distributer.

If the wires have been pulled from the distributer, then, then, remove the rotor cap, turn the engine over slowly until the rotor is pointing to the number 1 plug. Using the firing order on the intake manifold, starting with number 1, replace the wires going clockwise around the distributer.

Check your starter solenoid(turn the key to run position then use a jumper wire to connect both large terminals, if starts replace) if no difference, then have your ignition module tested, if its good, then check the ignition switch make sure its operating properly. Also make sure all grounds are in place and attached.

You need to turn the engine over to find Top dead center,
Then remove the cap and see if the rotor is pointing to #1,Then verify the wires have started in that position and are rotating in the right direction.

1988 Ford Ranger wont start when in wet weather. We think it is the distributer cap or the spark plug wires. If anyone has a sulution or remedy for this without replacing the wire or cap it would be great!

1985 Ford Ranger will not start when damp and cool outside.


possibly distributor cap getting wet. Try this. When it's not starting, remove distributor cap and dry inside and outside with hair dryer on warm setting. See if it starts then. If yes, replace cap and rotor and make sure plug wires are clean.
If it still doesn't start, you may be getting mositure in a wire connector that operates spark to plugs.

Are you getting spark at plugs when it own't start?
Check by getting a spark plug and plugging a spark plug wire into it and grounding the side of the plug. crank engine and watch for spark at gap.
