    The color on the cap should go to the color of where the plug is.

Check you spark plug gap and make sure you have the firing order for your plug wires correct. you might also want to check your Fuel filter. theygo on in a certain direction, so look for an arrow on it. It should be pointing towards the engine if installed correctly.

    FIRING ORDERS

    Print
    See Figures 1 and 2
    To avoid confusion, remove and tag 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.

    Have 1994 toy. truck with v6, when choke goes off the engine misses


    Hey 94 TOY...

    When did the problem start? Before you changed the wires and plugs? Or did it start, AFTER you changed the wires and plugs? Did the problem remain the same BEFORE & AFTER you made the changes?

    1 - If the TOY ran fair to Okay before you did the work, then you may have done something wrong when you made the cahages. Check for correct plugs and firing order. Check for cross wiring. With engine runing pull one plug wire off each plug one at a time. Each pulled plug wire will slow down the engine. When you pull a plug wire that doesn't react and does not make any change ON or OFF that cylinder Plug.
    Then that cylinder is not firing.

    2 - Check for spark at that wire. If you do-not have Spark there, But the other wires do... the wire going to that cylinder is BAD.

    3 - If you have the correct firing order and spark at all cylinders then the cylinder that did-not change the speed of engine has a compresstion problem. Bad valves, Piston or rings are bad... Major engine work and Major repair bill for the repair job.... GOOD LUCK....

    I changed spark plug wires an spark plugs an car wont start


    Make sure you gapped the plugs and make sure you have the firing order correct. If all the wires were removed at the same time, having them out of order is highly possible. Last, make sure the coil wire as well as electrical connections are in place around the coil. it's something you forgot or missed. check

    The engine misfires when accelerating


    Depending on your Grand Marquis's mileage...it sounds like plug wires and plugs...(worn out) and or engine timing/firing order? If plug wires recently changed...the spark plug wires are in the wrong firing order...confirm the firing order from your local parts store by phone...and retrace each one...always start with #1 cylinder...hope this helps.

    you need to get a diaghram on the firing order of your spark plug

    wires, almost any autoparts store will give you the firing order for

    your vehicle. if the firing order is incorrect the engine can sound

    like its falling apart. the spark plugs also need to be gapped

    correctly, they are not always pre-gapped or check the gap of

    one of your old spark plugs and match the gap with the new ones.

    good luck!

    FIRING ORDERS printpage_icon.gif

    Before carrying out extensive tests to isolate poor running problems, check connections of spark plug wires. This is especially important if plugs, wires, distributor, etc., have been disturbed recently for service. Obviously, this is not applicable to the wireless 4.7L engine.

    NOTE To avoid problems, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time to ease reinstallation.
    For vehicles with an extensive service history, keep in mind that the distributor 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 very important 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 in your book to reflect how your engine is wired.

    How to change spark plugs in 2.5 misubishi in a 1998 sebring


    Remove boot to spark plug using a boot puller. Unscrew spark plugs using a spark plug socket, extension, and ratchet.
    Do them one at a time to avoid confusion. Installation is the reverse of the removal.

    Firing Order diagram for 2006 Ford Explorer


    Hope this helps. The ignition coil:
    • changes low-voltage pulses from the PCM to high-voltage pulses.
    • fires 2 spark plugs simultaneously.
    • has 3 transformers.
      • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 1 and 5
      • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 2 and 6
      • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 3 and 4
    Spark plug wires:
    • carry high-voltage pulses from the ignition coil to the spark plugs.
    The spark plugs:
    • change high-voltage pulses to spark at the gap, which ignites the fuel and air mixture.
    The firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6.
