1959 chevy apache truck not starting after rotor and cap change


It is possible that the wiring of the cap was lost during the replacement. Included are some diagrams for the 6 and 8 cylinder. Confirm the sequance with the truck documentaTION.

Hope this helps?

My plug wires got mixed up. Which wires go where on 92 olds cutlass ciera


Put engine on piston #1 TDC compression stroke and see where rotor points. Mark outside of distributor, reinstall cap and plug wire at the mark goes to cylinder #1. Going clockwise to next wire, follow firing order for each next plug. Shop manual gives firing order.

How do I replace the sparkplugs


Buy the appropriate spark plugs from your auto supply store. They will need to know your engine size (# of Cylinders Etc.) as well as the info you have supplied here (yr make model) Gap the new plugs to manufacturer specs. Follow the plugs wires from the distributor to the plugs. Remove plug wire and unscrew one plug at a time so you do not mix up the firing order and replace with the new plug. Put wire back on. You may want to replace the distributor cap and rotor at this time as well. Be sure, again not to mix up the order of the wires. Mark them in some way so you know how to put them back on the new cap in the same order they came off of the old cap. Medical tape and a numbering system works well. Also use a felt pen to mark the old and new caps to correspond to the numbers on the tape. Does this help? Let me know. Thanks.

My truck is missing alot. I was told that I needed my plugs changed. How do I get to the plugs. I don't see them any where.


Follow the spark plug wires from your distributor cap to your spark plugs. Be sure to replace one at a time so you get the firing order correct. And be sure and gap your new plugs before you install them. Might want to check your distributor cap and rotor while your at it. Be sure that you do not get the wires mixed up. You can number (or otherwise) mark them with a pen and some medical (white) tape to be sure you know where to put them back if you do change your distributor cap and rotor. Good luck. Let me know if this helps. Thanks

I need to know what the order on the distributor cap in for the plugs are I know the firing order I just go the last two wires mixed up on the drivers side so I know it's 1-3-5 but where are the locations...


You need to determin which direction the rotor button turns when the engine is running. Take the cap off and get someone to bump the starter . Watch the rotor. If it turns counter clockwise the fireing order will follow its order counter clockwise on the distributer .In other words # 1 wire on the distributer goes to # 1 spark plug. Then the next wire counting counterclockwise goes to # 3 plug . Follow the firing around the distributer for all the wires. counter clockwise is the oppisit to the rotation of the hands on a clock .

check your plug wires again and check the cap and rotor sounds like either a bad cap and rotor or a couple wires backwards

Replace the spark plugs and wires along with a distributor cap and rotor. Be careful to leave the old wires and plug wires connected to dist.cap, just remove dist. cap from the distributor and lay aside with plug wires on it then install rotor then new cap and proceed to replace each wire for cap and spark plug one at a time so you don't mix up the spark plug wire firing order. Cap laying to the side is used for reference purpose.

Truck turns over but won't start 87 gmc 4x4


Well, if it was running prior to your replacing the plugs, then somewhere you went amiss. Check the firing order. If when you crank the engine over and it pops and backfires then you have a few plug wires mixed up. Other than that the other item to check would be the rotor button in side the cap. Is it lined up correctly or broken? Good luck.

No spark from plugs. changed plugs, rotor and distributor, cables, and primary coil.


i would start with the basics- did you make sure you followed the correct firing order when you installed your new plug wires? when you changed the cap/rotor did you notice any track marks inside the old cap? was the old rotor burnt/corroded? ive got a 97 ram and the cap is a b*tch to get to being buried in the back, could you have inadvertently moved the rotor off its timing mark? mis-aligned the crank sensor when installing your new cap? i would recheck how the cap was installed, just because you were able to position it proper and tightened down the screws doesnt mean that you didnt accidently pinch the wires on the crank sensor, or turned the rotor off its mark. also when pressing on the plug wires on the cap did you look for the "1" mark on the cap? this is your reference point for firing order. im not sure these are you problems, but rechecking your work to make sure something wasnt knocked off-kilter, or wrong plug wire placement would confirm the problem lies other than what was replaced. i hope this helps
