SOURCE: distributor cap and spark plug leads order/layout?

The firing order is 1342. The cylinders are numbered from left to right 1234. Depending on wether it is a 16 valve engine, the distributor cap lead number one position is at the front on the left, if its a normal 8 valve engine , the distributor cap lead number one is at the front pointing straight at the front. So, moving anti clockwise, the next lead will be number 3, then 4 , then 2.

My suzuki vitara with 2 ltr peugeot engine after power washing engine going into limp mode??

You likely got water into the distributor cap or spark plug wires. Get some wire dryer spray from your local auto parts store and spray the inside of the wires on both ends and remove the distributor cap ( if so equipped) and spray it liberally too. Give everything about 2 minutes to dry, then replace. Do the wires 1 at a time, so you don't change the cylinder order they go to.

2003 suzuki aerio and I got code p0303. Found damage spark plug and replaced but car still shudders a lot when in slow speeds/ idle as if it is having trouble maintaining power. Any ideas what could be the...

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. There are a few things that can cause this to happen. Make sure you do not have a vaccum leak anywhere. It may be another spark plug or wire. It may be a clogged fuel filter or air filter. You may need a tune up, new plugs and wires, coil pack. If you have a distributor, change the cap.

change one spark wire at a time on the new set of spark plugs wires remove them from box.match old wires with new wires to use the correct length to each if you need to change distributor cap.mark location distributor cap.number tag plug wires on the distributor cap so you can remove plug wires on distributor cap so you can replace cap and rotor and put wires back on the distributor cap in correct place.remember change one plug wire at a time so you wont get confuse.

My 1989 suzuki sidekick cranks but wont start. I changed the battery too.

you need to go step by step threw your system. first check the spark plugs to see if there is any moisture if so all bad. check wires to plugs and clean contacts inside distributor cap. check compression on each cylinder. they should be with in 10 psi of each other. check to see if there is even any juice being fed to the distributor. if there is no spark you need to fallow it back to the source until you find the problem.

No spark to plugs but i do have fire from the coil to the distributor

Bad plug wires, distributor cap, or rotor. Pull the cap if the contact points on the rotor or the cap look rusty they need to be replaced. If not try replacing the wires.

My suzuki GTI swift 1996 cut out when i was driving

Hi I am Vortash well as it requires spark to ignite the petrol compressed in the cylinders I would say .. YES lol thing to do is check if your coil is faulty or not the main lead to the distributor comes from the coil to the distributor cap pull the lead out from the cap .. place the lead somewhere you can see it clearly but no more that 1/2" away from an earthed point on the bodywork , ( Better if you can get a brave friend to do this ) and turn the engine over a few times if you get a spark to the earth that eliminates the coil as the fault .. In which case the most likey cause is the Rotor arm beneath the Distributor cap or the cap itself need replacing .. and if your doing that best to replace the leads also .. But if you did not get a spark from that first test it still may not be the coil .
however there it starts to get complicated and you do really need the Haynes Manual to guide you to the next steps .. for instance is it Points ie contact breakers or electronic CDi distributor .. see what I mean so I hope this has helped you , and remeber a lucas tune will probably find this fault in less than a minute so that may be worth your while if time is of an essence to you ... Regards Vortash

No power when accelerating

Once you rule out some kind of ignition problems,; spark plugs and wires, ignition timing, distrib. cap & rotor, the cause may be low fuel pressure from a failing pump or clogged filter. Listen to the pump in the gas tank. If its been getting louder lately, have the pressure tested.
