The normal firing order is 1342 on a 4 cylinder engine

You need to remove a spark plug on the No1 cylinder and check for Top Dead Centre on the Compression Stroke (Put your thumb over the plug hole and you will feel the pressure) .

At that point the rotor arm will be lined up with the right lead for No1 cylinder

The rotor arm turns clockwise so No 2 lead is next and so on

    To find TDC you will need to use a a piece of dowel or a similar object inserted down the plug hole to allow you to see the piston rising



    If you take out all of the plugs this will make turning the engine over using a socket and wrench on the crankshaft pulley a bit easier



    Do not use the starter motor to turn it over , it will go too fast

Tip

If u drove your car over a puddle...


If you drove over a puddle, just before your vehicle died, the water could shorten the ignition wires. CAUTION: Never touch the ignition wires, coil or distributor when ignition is ON or the engine is running; and be careful, engine is probably very hot! ignition.jpg Switch the ignition off, open the hood and check the spark plugs wires (check the picture), distributor and spark plug caps. They shouldn't be wet. If they are wet, turn the ignition off. With the ignition off, dry the ignition wires, distributor and spark plug caps with a clean rag or tissue. Now try to start engine with fully pressed accelerator pedal because your engine may be flooded with gas.

'95 Jimmy 4.3L won't start unless plug wire is removed


every possibility that the timing ( firing order) is wrong from what you describe
bring the engine to tdc no1 piston on compression and that is no 1 plug lead in the distributor cap

I have a 1993 honda accord that will start but won't stay cranked...what's wrong?


A few things to check:

Wrong spark plugs installed - causing too many misfires
Timing problem - the ECC (Engine Control Computer) will give up after a short while if it cannot get the engine to operate in correct time
clogged fuel filter
clogged air filter
clogged fuel strainer
worn distributor cap/rotor
failing fuel pump
vacuum leak
faulty ECC (Engine Control Computer)
ignition coil failing - the ECC will stall the engine if too many misfires are detected.
wireset - faulty spark plug wire(s) causing too many misfires.
faulty fuel pressure regulator
EGR valve faulty

If the engine is misfiring alot, it will **** the resulting unburned fuel out the exhaust pipe, so check for this as well.

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.

What is the firing order for the 1994 ford taurus 3.8 engine, have just replaced cap and rotor, need order, thought I marked them but engine will not start. Perhaps I was wrong in the order.


Not trying to insult your intelligence, I'm going to get pretty basic here,

Looking at the Front of the engine, the spark plug order is 1, 2, 3, and 4. Front to back.

Looking at the distributor, it has two mounting screws for the distributor cap. One is close to the engine, the other screw is on the other side.

Looking at the distributor cap screw, on the Far side away from the engine, Number 1 spark plug is on the tower to the Left of it.

To the right of this distributor cap screw, is Number 2 spark plug tower.
The rotor turns clockwise.

Again, looking at the distributor from a top view, there is a distributor cap screw at the top, (Close to engine), and a distributor cap screw at the bottom.

Drawing an imaginary line from the top screw to the bottom screw, Number 1 spark plug wire goes to the Left, of the bottom mounting screw.

Firing Order is 1-3-4-2
The rotor turns Clockwise, (To the right)
