This can be a funny little problem but not so hard. #1 plug is closest to the timing cover and then 2,3,4 back to toward the transmission. With all the plug wires snapped on to the plugs and the cap ends hanging loose, label the cap ends with their corresponding hole number. Now we know that the firing order is 1-3-4-2 and the rotation is clockwise at the distributor end because hondas turn backwards. So there is only four possible combinations. Arrange the distributor cap wires in a clockwise direction: 1-3-4-2 for each four possibilities, and crank to try it. Chances are you'll hit it the second time - 50/50 odds anyway :-)

I have a 91 honda civic and need spark plug wire diagram


Fire order
1-3-4-2

Cylinder #1 will be the one closes to the fan belts and so on 1-2-3-4, on the distributor cap there should be a # 1 stamped on it, put cylinder # 1 spark plug wire on that one, install spark plug wire in firing order clockwise on the cap, the cap some time's might even have the firing order on it.

Just changed out my spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor. Now the car wont start, what is the problem ?


Recheck the firing order of the spark plugs and wires. you might have connected them wrong. Can't tell you the firing order since I don't know what kind, make, or year of your vehicle.

What order do i plug the spark plugs into the distributor on 1989 honda civic 1.5L


The plug wires are different lengths for different spark plugs. The best way to not get messed up is to do one wire at a time. Unplug old wire from distributor and plug, compare it to the new ones, find the new one that is the same length and replace. You don't want to get the wires mixed up. Hope this helped.

1997 Honda Civic EX power loss


start with the easy stuff. check the plugs. make sure they are not wet with oil leaking from the spark plug stem seals located on the rocker cover. Check your air filter to make sure its clean. Now for the slightly harder stuff. The spark plug wires should be changed every 80k or so. My suspect the reason for the power loss is most likely a clogged cat convert in the exhaust system. check your exhaust flow. Way to do that is to check the temp. of the exhaust before the cat and the temp. after the cat. If the Cat is plugged the temp before the catalytic converter will be abnormally higher than after the cat.

BUT if you are experiencing misfire of engine. I would go straight to replacing spark plugs and wires. Distributor cap and rotor.

Also check the charging system. make sure the alternator is charging the battery at above 13Volts. With all components on. ( radio/lights/highbeam/AC). Use a voltmeter and check at the battery positive and negative. if its not charging above 13 V replace the alternator.

good luck
