If you look straight back from the water pump to the distributor splitting the capcylinder #1 is the first one to the left.

I mixed the distributor cables up,so i need the order to correctly connect


If the wires are still in the distributer, AND, if you have a stock intake manifold, the firing order is on the manifold. If it's a V-8, the number 1, 3, 5, & 7 plugs are on the drivers side of the engine. The number 2, 4, 6, & 8 plugs are on the passenger side. The number 1 plug wire can be located by looking at the distributer from the front of the engine and visually looking between the distributer and the number 1 plug. Visualize the distributer as a clock. The number one position should be located between 4 and 5 o'clock and should have the longest wire of those on that side of the distributer.

If the wires have been pulled from the distributer, then, then, remove the rotor cap, turn the engine over slowly until the rotor is pointing to the number 1 plug. Using the firing order on the intake manifold, starting with number 1, replace the wires going clockwise around the distributer.

NEED HELP WITH THE FIRING ORDER ON A 1997 JEEP WRANGLER 2.5L ENGINE. I BELIEVE THE ORDER IS 1-3-4-2 BUT WHICH CYLINDER IS 1,2,3,4 AND HOW IS THE DISTRIBUTOR CAP ORIENTED IN RELATION TO SAME? THANKS, BRIAN.


on the intake manifold it has the cylinders numbered 1432 and on the distributor it has the #1 pulg marked and will go in reverse directions so remove the cap if it has one and put the plugs on in order of the postion#1 on the distributroter then go 1342 if it has coils the coils pack will have numbers on the pack 12 34 so put the pulg wire on the way the coil is marked and the wat the intake is marked, there is only two ways it can be wired it's 1423 or 1234 so go for it. hope this helps.

To avoid confusion, tag and remove the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement.
If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes to reflect how your engine is wired.

I took off all the sprak plug wires and i don't


What engine? Why wouldn't you use a pen or sharpy to mark the wires with the cylinder number as you removed them. Next time make a schetch of the dist cap and put numbers on it. If you do not know the firing order make you own number system till you get that info. Of coarse do it before you remove stuff.Go into a dealership or local repair shop and get a tech off to the side to help you.

HEI DISTRIBUTOR PROBLEMS


on the intake manifold you will see 8 numbers, this is your firing order
from the front of the car the left side numbers are 1,3,5,7 and the right side are 2,4,6,8. now ont the distributor cap there should be a number 1 at one of the plug towers. you start there with #1 plug wireand continue.
on a chevy the firing order is 18436572 and this is the order you put the wires on the cap. now the second problem i don't know right off hand which way the rotor turns on your engine. so remove the cap and crank the engine over and see which way the rotor turns, this is the order you put the wires back on the cap. hope this helps

We have replaced all the spark plugs in our 1991 jeep cherokee but dont have the diagram of what plug wire goes where. Can you help me?


Which motor i-6 or v8?
look on the intake for firing order if it's the inline 6 from front to back they are numbers in order 1-6,using the timing marks set the engine at 0degrees on compression stroke and number 1 plug wire will be directly above where the rotor button is at I think the firing order is 135624 from number 1 on cap and going clockwise put the plug wires on the cap to the plugs in that order.
