where is number 3 cylinder - 19574e9.jpg
The left side of this picture is where the pulleys and fan belt(s) are , so you can see in relation to your motor where number 3 is , since you didn't say it was a V6 or 4 cyl , here is the V6 picture , if it was a 4cyl , from the fan belt area count back 3 , and that would be #3 cylinder also

A Chilton or Haynes manual will show that. Sometimes under the hood is a picture showing how the vacuum lines and belts go, it just may mention the plug wires...........

Need position of number 3 cylinder


Since you don't say if you have 4 or a 6 cyl, I will give you both.On a 4 cyl count from the front of the engine. The belt pulley is the front.On a 6 cylinder, one bank of cylinders is more forward that the other. On the forward bank the the front cylinder is number 1, so the front cylinder on the other bank is number 2. So number 3 is next to number 1. The second cylinder on the forward bank.

I have a code misfire cylinder 5 and I am not sure where cylinder 5 is on my engine and it runs like **** and when i give it gas Service engine soon light comes on. specs: 2000 v8 8.1 litre gas Vortec 8100...


Cylinder numbering for your engine is 1-3-5-7 on the left hand bank and 2-4-6-8 on the right hand bank (passenger side). To be sure where number 1 is look across the cylinder heads number 1 cylinder is always the head that is furthest ahead towards the front of the vehiclek, then count 3 cylinders back on that side, should be left, and that should be number 5. pull the spark plug first and check it and at the same time pull number 3 's plug and swap the coils from 5 to 3. If the plugs are bad replace them all. Then run the vehicle and see if the misfire code followed the coil to number 3, if it does you know you have a bad coil, they usually run about 90 - 100 bucks each, that is if the plugs or wire wasn't the problem. hope this will help you. good luck.

Cylinder location


Standing in front of your jeep and facing the engine. The number 1 cylinder is the one closest to you on your right (the drivers side of your jeep). The middle cylinder on the drivers side is the number 3 cylinder.

Driver Side Front to back is 1-3-5
Passenger side Front to Back is 2-4-6
