SOURCE: What is the firing order and distributor cap order

There is no distributor cap on the 3.1L. The firing order is wrote on the coil packs and the front cylinder between the radiator and engine is #1 cylinder.

1985 Chevy El Camino 305ci. Turned over good but wouldn't fire. Replaced contrrol module and it started fine for about 2 months, then did the same thing. Replaced dist cap, rotor & coil. Start


Had an 84 silverado 305 that did the same thing. Try giving it a full tune up. Plugs, wires... Mine turned out to be fouled plugs. I didn't find that out till after i tore it down & put a timing set in it. Wasn't getting good enough spark.

How do I put a distributor in a 1989 chevy 350 5.7L 1500 pickup. So I will get the correct firing order on the spark plugs


Remove the valve cover on the driver's side and turn the engine over by hand until you see the intake open on #1 cylinder. and then close followed by the exhaust valve starting to open. #1 is front driver's side.Back up a little and set the crank timimg mark on 0 on the degree marker. That should be TDC. Put the rotor button on the distributor and set it roughly at the 3 o'clock position and put it in. As it meshes with the cam gear it will turn and once fully seated should be at 5 o'clock. that is the position of #1 plug wire. If it's not at 5 o'clock pull it out and turn the rotor button slightly to catch a new tooth and reinsert. DO NOT force the distributor into position. Wiggle and push,turn the rotor slightly and it will go into place. Patience is the key here and make sure it is fully seated on the intake. Once it is in place the firing order is1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 and the distributor runs clockwise. Odd cylinder's are on the driver's side and even on the passenger's.
You may have to adjust the distributor a little one way or the other to get the engine to fire. That's normal. Once you get it running you can set the timing with your light. If you have no light then advance the distributor until it start's to sputter and do the same in ******. Then set your timing in the middle of that space, that will get you close. Hope this helps.

Nissan navara 1986 2.4L petrol timing problem


For timing, on 1981 and later 4 cyl engines (from the Haynes manual):
1. Turn camshaft so both valves for #1 cylinder are closed, and turn the crankshaft so #1 piston is at top dead center (woodruff key should be pointing up).
2. Engage the camshaft sprocket (with stamped numbers facing out) into the timing chain, and install the chain around the crankshaft sprocket. The bright links on the chain should be aligned with the timing mark on the crankshaft sprocket (on the right side as you look at it) and with the number "2" stamped into the camshaft sprocket, which should also be on the right side as you look at it.
3. Install the camshaft sprocket onto the camshaft, aligning the camshaft dowel pin with the number "2" hole near the center of the sprocket.

For the firing order and wiring routing for the 8 plug 4 cylinder engine: (Plugs on the intake manifold side are coded "I", and on the exhaust manifold side are coded "E")

Wire to 1I should be connected to tower on the distributor facing directly to the front of the vehicle. Going counterclockwise from there, the order is (1I), 2E, 3I, 1E, 4I, 3E, 2I, and 4E.

Backfiring


No. If you knocked pieces of the chain or sprockets off, you'd not run at all. Check your timing and your idle mix. Also, check to see if your crankcase vent valve is moving freely. Replace if in doubt. Sounds like you may be running rich. Check carb for proper idle mix after you set float levels. Is the carb new, rebuilt or some old hunk? Are the gaskets new or reused? Is the spacer plate the right one for the car and installed correctly?

Also...was the timing chain new and the cam properly indexed? You may have to take the front of the engine apart to find out.
