Isuzu seem to have complicated things by changing engines, firing orders and even direction of rotation! As you can see, they've numbered the cylinders the other way than the 3.2L.
The Firing sequence for the 3.1 (traditional distributor) 6 cylinder is as follows -
If you take the distributor cap off, there should be a "No.1" formed on the inside. Stick a lead on this before you put the cap back on and go from there.
As leads are different lengths, you may have to swap a few to find the best fit.
I think 2 of them will look out of place - but that's the way it's designed. Just make use of clips for holding them neatly.
Thanks for using Fixya.

SOURCE: Isuzu Rodeo w/3.1L engine
Front Passenger side on cap is 1 - if you look on the inside of your cap there SHOULD be a pin marked with a 1, and the plugs go CLOCKWISE not counter. Just had the same problem myself with my 91 Rodeo. Cylinders are as follows Passenger side (front to back) 1 - 3 - 5, Driver side (front to back) 2 - 4 - 6. I called the Isuzu dealer and they told me it was counter clockwise, but when I hooked it up that way it backfired through the Carb.

In the center of each valvecover is a well with a wire in it each wire has a seal cap attached pull up and youll find a stem which goes down a tube this is part of the spark plug wire the plugs are at the bottom of this tube youll need a long adapter on your wrench and socket for this job and you can extract the plug using the wires stem

with my experiance on these engines it's usually the upper outlet hoses running from the heads into a t then into the upper radiator hose they are pain to replace but 3 out of 3 of my v6 isuzu's have had the same problem you'll have to pull off the theromstat and the coil pack the hoses are very small and run from the end of the heads one on each into a t then into the radiator hose just under the housing

you for contacting fixya.com.
the spark plug is not coming in contact the engine light is flashing. Otherwise
take your car to the nearest auto zone and check if any code is stored in the
computer or not to get it fixed. However a flashing engine light means the ECU
has detected a misfire strong enough to damage the catalyst in the cat.
get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
