Hi,

In my past dealings with these 3 cylinder engines, common faults (depending on the engine) are:

  • contact point pitting/burns (clean, scrape/replace);
  • rotor;
  • distributor cap;
  • ignition coil;
  • ignition coil ignition B+12 connector;
  • ignition coil loose ground.
Please check above mentioned components.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: sequence for spark plug leads on a vw polo 1.4 1996

Hello darren625, the firing order will be 1-3-4-2, #1 will be at the front of the block,I am not familiar with volks wagon but you can disconnect the power (to be safe) turn the engine over by hand with plugs out for ease use a piece of stiff wire or small screwdriver in the #1 plug hole and you will feel the piston come up make sure it is on the compression stroke (you will feel air escape) when it is at the top before it starts to travel down that will be tdc (top dead center) the rotor will now be in line with #1 connect wires as per firing order and you should be good to go,hope this helps, good luck

Remove the spark plugs and wires one at a time to avoid confusion and incorrect wiring during installation.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable, and if the vehicle has been run recently, allow the engine to thoroughly cool.
  2. On engines equipped with spark plugs, carefully twist the spark plug wire boot to loosen it, then pull upward and remove the boot from the plug. Be sure to pull on the boot and not on the wire, otherwise the connector located inside the boot may become separated.
  3. On engines with coil-over-plug ignition, remove the ignition coil for access to the spark plug. For additional information, please refer to the following topic(s): Engine Electrical, Ignition Coil.
  4. Using compressed air, blow any water or debris from the spark plug well to assure that no harmful contaminants are allowed to enter the combustion chamber when the spark plug is removed. If compressed air is not available, use a rag or a brush to clean the area.
Remove the spark plugs when the engine is cold, if possible, to prevent damage to the threads. If removal of the plugs is difficult, apply a few drops of penetrating oil or silicone spray to the area around the base of the plug, and allow it a few minutes to work.
  1. Using a spark plug socket that is equipped with a rubber insert to properly hold the plug, turn the spark plug counterclockwise to loosen and remove the spark plug from the bore.
WARNING It is recommended that you NOT use a flexible extension on the socket. Use of a flexible extension may allow a shear force to be applied to the plug. A shear force could break the plug off in the cylinder head, leading to costly and frustrating repairs.
To install:
  1. Inspect the spark plug boot for tears or damage. If a damaged boot is found, the spark plug wire must be replaced.
  2. Using a wire feeler gauge, check and adjust the spark plug gap. When using a gauge, the proper size should pass between the electrodes with a slight drag. The next larger size should not be able to pass while the next smaller size should pass freely.
  3. Carefully thread the plug into the bore by hand. If resistance is felt before the plug is almost completely threaded, back the plug out and begin threading again. In small to reach areas, an old spark plug wire and boot or a short length of rubber hose, placed on the spark plug, could be used as a threading tool. The boot will hold the plug while you twist the end of the wire and the wire is supple enough to twist before it would allow the plug to cross-thread.
WARNING Do NOT use the spark plug socket to thread the plugs. Always carefully thread the plug by hand or using an old plug wire to prevent the possibility of cross-threading and damaging the cylinder head bore. Remember, your truck has aluminum cylinder heads and the spark plug threads in the head are easily damaged.
  1. Carefully tighten the spark plug. If the plug you are installing is equipped with a crush washer, seat the plug, then tighten about 1 / 4 turn to crush the washer. If you are installing a tapered seat plug, tighten the plug to 1115 ft. lbs. (1520 Nm).
  2. If equipped with coil-over-plug ignition, install the ignition coil assembly(ies).
  3. If equipped with spark plugs, apply a small amount of silicone dielectric compound to the end of the spark plug lead or inside the spark plug boot to prevent sticking, then install the boot to the spark plug and push until it clicks into place. The click may be felt or heard, then gently pull back on the boot to assure proper contact.

I hope help you. Good luck.

I mixed up my spark plug wires in my Farmall H Tractor. I need a diagram to tell me how to properly connect them to the distributor


didn't say how many cylinders but here is one way
remove the rocker cover and plugs
turn the engine over untill no 1 cylinder valves have clearance under the rockers
put the ht lead in the cap that faces the rotor button turn engine over until you see the next set of rockers with clearance that will be the next ht lead to go in n the next spot facing the rotor button it may be no 5 if 6 cylinder or 3 if 4 cylinder keep turning for each next set of free rockers and you will come back to no 1
if 4 cyl may be 1342 or 1243
for a 6 cylinder it is most likely 153642

Want to remove and replace the distributor in my 1997 gmc


1 Remove the plastic cover from the engine block with a wrench, then let the spark plug wires lead you to the distributor. It's at the back of the engine block.


2 Remove the negative cable from the battery at the side of the engine compartment; carefully pull the spark plug wires off the distributor cap so you don't damage them. Use a screwdriver to take off the coil leads from the distributor and the electrical connector at the bottom of the distributor.


3 Loosen the clamps and take off the distributor cap. Mark the parts to align the rotor position to the distributor housing and the housing to the engine block. This will help replace parts correctly during distributor installation.


4 Unbolt the distributor hold-down bolt with a wrench and remove the distributor from the engine.


5 Install the new Sierra distributor, aligning the marks for proper seating in the engine block. When ordering the distributor, give the parts dealer your model, year and engine size. You can order part number A1841639 from Parts Train for a 4.3L engine.


6 Re-install the distributor hold-down bolt. Replace the distributor cap and put the clamps back on. Attach the electrical connector at the base of the distributor, put on the spark plug wires and coil leads, and hook up the negative battery cable.

I need the diagram for plug wiring for 1992 ford tempo


Firing order is 1-3-4-2 Please rate if this helps

Installation of wires
  1. Whenever a high tension wire is removed for any reason from a spark plug, coil or distributor cap, or a new high tension wire is installed, Silicone Dielectric Compound WA-10, D7AZ-19A331-A (ESE-M1C171-A) or equivalent must be applied to boot before it is reconnected. Using a small clean tool, coat entire interior surface of boot with Silicone Dielectric Compound WA-10, D7AZ-19A331-A (ESE-M1C171-A) or equivalent.
  1. Insert each wire on proper terminal of distributor cap. Ensure wires are all the way down over their terminals. The No. 1 terminal is identified on cap. Install wires starting with No. 1 terminal.
  1. Remove wire retaining brackets from old high tension wire set and install them on new set in same relative position. Install wires in brackets on valve rocker arm covers.
  1. Connect wires to proper spark plugs.
  1. Install coil wire.


Installation of distributor
Before installing distributor, visually inspect distributor. Inspect O-ring. It should fit tightly and be free of cuts. The drive gear should be free of nicks, cracks and excessive wear. Rotate distributor drive shaft. It should move freely, without binding.
  1. To install distributor correctly, No. 1 piston must be at Top Dead Center (TDC) of compression stroke. Remove No. 1 cylinder spark plug and rotate engine clockwise until No. 1 piston is on the compression stroke.
  1. With No. 1 piston on compression stroke, align timing pointer with TDC on the crankshaft damper.
  1. Align locating boss on rotor with hole on armature. Fully seat rotor on distributor shaft.
  1. Rotate distributor shaft so blade on rotor is pointing toward mark on distributor base, that was previously made in Step 2 of the Removal procedure.
  1. While installing distributor, continue rotating rotor slightly so leading edge of the vane is centered in vane switch stator assembly.
  1. Rotate distributor in block to align leading edge of vane and vane switch stator assembly. Verify rotor is pointing at No. 1 mark on distributor base. If vane and vane switch stator cannot be aligned by rotating distributor in cylinder block, remove distributor enough to just disengage distributor gear from camshaft gear. Rotate rotor enough to engage distributor gear on another tooth of camshaft gear. Repeat Step 1 if necessary.
  1. Install distributor hold-down clamp and bolt. Tighten bolt, but leave it loose enough to rotate distributor.
  1. Install distributor cap, No. 1 spark plug and ignition wires. Check that ignition wires are securely connected to the cap and spark plugs. Tighten distributor cap hold-down screws to 2.0-2.6 Nm (18-23 lb-in).
  1. Reconnect distributor to wiring harness.
  1. Set initial timing according to procedures found in Section 13A of the Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis Manual .
  1. After timing is set, tighten distributor hold-down bolts to 23-34 Nm (17-25 lb-ft).
  1. Recheck initial timing. Adjust if necessary.

REWIRE SPARK CABLES 95 CHEVY CORSICA V6


Hi, I am not aware of your skills level, however, some office "WHITE OUT" or white paint etc will vastly assist you to complete the task successfully. Pick a lead in the cap, mark it's location with a dab of white out / white paint, follow the wire, (HT lead) to it's spark plug, very carefully remove the spark plug connection and / or rubber boot if fitted. fit the replacement lead and route it back to the cap. Carefully remove the original cable and fit the replacement. Do the same for the rest of the cables,(HT leads) marking the cap as you go, ie, a,b,c,d or a number sequence your choice.. Remember, doNOT remove all cables at the same time. Change out one at a time, and you will not mix up the firing order.

It is a wise precaution to replace the cap and rotor,when you replace the cables, (HT leads.). .

Good luck.
