Question about 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

1 Answer

Wiring order I knocked some wires off my distributer cap trying to change my spark plug wires on an '04 Sportrac. I know this is a big no-no. Can anyone tell me how to check the sequence on the cap? My firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6. Knowing this, what next?

Since your distributer cap spins in a clockwise motion, just make sure you start with 1 then 4, then in the full order to make sure the sequence is correct.

When i turn on my 04 taurus. It starts makin knock sound , i replaced my lower intake n i think i missplaced the spark plug wiring


If the spark plug wiring is not correct, the engine will misfire and that will create erratic combustion, which is a shock to the cylinder, which results in a load harsh noise. Locate the number 1 spark plug wire on the distributor cap and trace each wire to the spark plugs. The firing order will be listed on the intake manifold. Make the correct wire to spark plugs attachments as needed.

I do this for a living and have for 25+ years. To this day when I do it I have know idea how I messed them up but i do it some times. Even when I think i am doing them one at a time. Double check your firing order (see picture below). If that's not it check the Distributer cap & rotor for any cracks or flaws. Then check the plugs for being wrong or faulty such as cracks as well. that's all I can think about at this point for you unless you knocked a vacuum line off somehow and that's possible too. I hope this helps and good luck.

If your trying to change spark plugs remove one wire from a plug, replace that plug, reinstall the wire onto that plug and move on to the next plug. You don;t need to worry about firing order unless you plan on changing the wires or the cap and rotor. Even if you where to change the wires if you did them one at a time than the new ones would be in the exact same place as the old ones and there is nothing to worry about,

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 .
