SOURCE: 1999 KIA Sephia is only firing on 2 cyclinders

I worked on a 2000 Sephia which had a similar problem. Not sure if the engine is the same, but I recall the distributorless ignition system used an unusual set-up. It used two coil packs, sitting on alternating cylinders. When one goes out, it will kill two alternating cylinders, just as you are describing. If I recall correctly, the part is around $100 from a dealership, but if you're feeling lucky, you can check a junkyard.

Here are some quick and dirty instruction on how to replace the part

Chevy V6 3.4 distributor firing order

I need year and model? I looked at specification guides for vehicles, all the 3.4L I found were fwd/ front wheel drive, and no distributor, had a coil pack. The model year would help.
On fwd 3.4L, the number one piston, looking under the hood, is rear bank left.

Why are there so many variations of firing order for the same engine ? I have a 2004 kia sodona V6. what do I look for to determine which is correct one for my vehicle ? very confusing on here

There is only 1 firing order for the kia 3.5l v6. Other manufacturers may also have a 3.5l but it is their own design. Your firing order is 1 2 3 4 5 6. 1 3 5 are the rear cylinder bank and 2 4 6 are the front.

I don't think I made myself clear on my last question

The firing order sounds strange but if you are correct then you are right in saying that number 2 cylinder will be down with inlet valves open when number 1 cylinder is at TDC.

I need to know what the spark plug wire firing order is on a 2001 KIA Optima V6 2.5L

Most gasoline six cylinder engines fire in sequential order: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. And most cylinders are numbered the same. Looking at the engine from the front of the vehicle. The left cylinders are old starting at 1 closest to you and in sequential order. The right cylinders are even starting at 2 closest to you and in sequential order.

Im working on a ford ranger 2002 with the v6. i just need to see a pic of the piston order and the coil pack order. im getting codes for 4..5..6 missfire but im not sure witch ones they are

Cylinders 1,2 and 3 are the cylinders on the passenger side and cylinders 4,5 and 6 are the cylinders on the driver's side. They are numbered front to rear. The coil pack will have the cylinder numbers marked on the top of it. The actual firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6
The top of your coil should look like this:
1 2 3
5 6 4

Your engine looks like this:
1 2 3
4 5 6
