    You need to check your firing order and make sure the wires are on the right wire terminals. you can get the firing order from a manual. It is easy to mix them up.

If when you changed the distributor cap you misplaced the wires in the incorrect order you could have caused a misfire. When looking at the cap the correct firing order for a 4.3 liter is 165432 going clockwise. Also if you loosened the distributor hold down bolt and turned the distributor even slightly you could cause a misfire.

No spark to engine 1991 ford pickup


It can be faulty or dirty spark plug itselfd.Also for reference get the fuel level checked.Is the fuel tank is empty or near to empty.
Try cleaning the spark plugs and then see if that is helpin.On some cases the black carbon layer gets collected on the spark plugs and that causes the problem,so cleaning the plugs help.But if its not helping,then spark plug has to be replaced.Spark plugs get power from ignition coil to ignite sparks.If ignitioncoils are faulty then also there will no spark.--------------

Lately, whenever it rains, my 1998 chevy blazer wont start/won't run. the engine turns over, but it won't run. after 2 or 3 days it will fire up like nothing was wrong with it to begin with. any...


Whenever I had this problem, it was always cured with a new set of GOOD spark plug wires. Not generic set off the parts store shelf. Get some moisture removal spray and put it on both ends, the coil and the plug, before putting the wires on. Do one wire at a time so you do not get them mixed up. I do not think you have a distributor or a cap. If you do replace it also as it is over 20 years old.

I need the firing order for a 93 chevy blazer distributor.where is number 1?


Firing order for a 4.3 liter v6 1-6-5-4-3-2

#1 piston is the first spark plug drivers side front of engine.
Passenger side cylinders are 2 4 6
Drivers side cylinders are 1 3 5
Distributor rotates clockwise and the starting spot is marked with a 1 on the top of the distributor cap.
Make sure you note the position of the 1 on the old cap before you take it off so you don't rotate the new one 180 out

How to change distributor and rotor on 1995 chevy blazer


If you're talking about the distributor cap and rotor. I dont know what size engine you have, but it's pretty much the same. Mark your wires with a piece of tape and write a number on each one. When you remove the wire from the cap, ONE AT A TIME, mark that location on the OLD cap with the same number. (you can remove them and immediately put them on the new cap IN THE SAME LOCATION, but it can get in the way) After all the wires are off, take the two screws out of the base of the cap and lift up on it.

Now...Take the two caps and place them next to each other, and mark the new cap exactly as you did the old cap.

Leave them there for a minute. Go back and take the 2 screws out of the rotor. Place the new one in place and tighten,first making sure you have it in the right position. Look at the bottom. There should be a square prong, and a round prong. They're there to make sure you don't put it on backwards.

Go back and get the cap from where you left it and put it back on in the same position. Put the wires back on starting with the last one you took off and work your way back to number 1.

Don't be afraid to take a picture of it before you start. Just because.

1993 blazer 4x4


I assume you have the 4.3 vortec. If so, check to make sure you have the spark plug wires in the right position on the distributor cap. firing order is 1,2,3,4,5,6. right side of engine is 1 front 3 middle and 5 rear. Left side of engine is 2 front, 4 middle, and 6 rear. On the distributor cap # 1 should be toward front of engine and work counter clockwise from there. Hope this is helpful. KS
