I dont have book on this one but usually firing order is stamped on the intake manifold. To find #1 on distributor, turn the crankshaft till the timing mark is at "0" on the indicator. At that point the rotor in dist is either pointing at #1 or 180 degrees away from it. If you really have to stretch the wire to get to that tower, you are likely 180 out. To determine which way to go around cap, see which way the rotor turns when cranking. firing order goes in that direction.

How to change spark plugs


Those are as easy as they come these days. Mark each spark plug wire with a piece of tape with the cylinder # written on it, so as not to mix up the wires. Remove each spark plug wire by firmly grasping the wire by the boot (do not pull on the wire) and twist it back and forth a few times while pulling slowly. It should pop off without a great deal of effort. If it is seized and it breaks, you will have to replace the wire, or at the very least replace the terminals (if you can get some). Use an air hose and blow around the base of each spark plug to dislodge any loose dirt that could fall into the cylinders (not absolutely necessary, but a good idea). Remove each spark plug with a spark plug socket and extension and ratchet (I forget which size socket, it's either 5/8 or 13/16). Check the gaps of each new spark plug (typically around 0.035 in). re-install each new spark plug by hand (do not cross-thread them) and once you have ensured that the plug is threaded in properly, tighten the plug until it seats, and then tighten an additional 1/16 of a turn. Repeat this for the remaining plugs. Re-install wires to the corresponding spark plugs. You're done!

Where are the sparkplugs located on a 2003 galant, 4 cylinder


The plugs are buried in the middle of the engine. Replace them one at a time so the wires don't get mixed up.

twist the ignition wire socket while pulling up to remove the wire.

Use a long extension and a socket with a rubber insert so the plug stays inside the socket as you draw it up.

How do I get the spark plugs out of my 1998 ford escort to replace with new ones? Also where does the pcp Valve go?


With you hood open and you are standing in front of the car sparkplug wires need to be removed,i suggest you remove them one at a time, under each wire the sparkplug is threaded into the cylinder head,using a 5/8 sparkplug socket remove the sparkplug and replace it with new properly gapped sparkplug.Note:if you remove all sparkplug wires at once the factory wires are generally numbered 1 2 3 4 the sparkplug closesed to the passenger fender is #1 and the one clossesed to the driver's fender is #4.Standing in front of vehicle the PCV Valve is located between #3 and #4 on the backside(intake side) of the engine fitted down into a rubber hose

My van is backfiring and it feels like it is missing. sometimes it feels like it will die out. This problem happpens more when I turn the AC on.


The ignition timing is off. Maybe out of sequence.
Did someone change the sparkplugs or the sparkplug wires or the distributor cap?
If so, then the wires were not replaced in the proper order.

Could also be a bad valve spring, or maybe an injector that is leaking.

Please let us know if the wires may have been installed incorrectly.
