The firing order is also under the hood of the vehicle. If you look to the right side you'll see the guide and a small instructions on having it done properly. It's better than having to write it down when it's just right there under the hood.

### The book say that the firing order is 1342 but my car will only run with it from left to right on the cap 4312 , 1& 4 being reversed. why wont it run with volvo spects.

ORDER is the key word here. 1342 is the order counting from the front to rear. Your distributor turns counter clockwise. You say it is 4312 which is also correct. Remember ORDER is the important thing here. Start counting your 4312 with the 1 and go to the left and start over on the right.
You will see 1342, 3421,4213 and 2134 are all the same thing in ORDER.
I hope this makes it clear. Robert

### My 98 grand prix gtp (3800) (L67) wont start...wines then BACKFIRES. everything from the heads up are brand new except the coil pack housing which ironically enough was submerged in antifreeze. however i...

If your firing order is correct(165432), then I would suspect the drenched coil pack. That oily antifreeze will penetrate every nook and cranny of the coil. It's probably shorting out and cross-firing. I would go ahead and replace it. Double check your firing order again. The back cylinders are 2-4-6, counting from to back, but that is not the firing order. The plug wires would attach to the coils in the following order, counting from the front of the coils(nearest to the front of the car)to the rear:1-4-5-2-3-6.Let me know if any of this helps you. Good Luck.

### I took of*** my spark plug wires working on my small block 350 pickup and I don't remember the the firing order to put the new wires back on. Is there a diagram anywhere or is it even that difficult to...

Next time number each lead before you remove it and no. the dissy cap as well

The firing order, which should be cast into the intake manifold, for the chevy small block V8 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The firing order is the numerical sequence in which the spark plugs are fired. The insertion position of each spark plug wire around the circumference of the distributor cap can be found according to a clock face. The insertion sequence determines the firing order. The firing order is followed clockwise around the distributor cap starting from the 6:30 position with the 6:30 position being the number one cylinder spark plug wire.
On classic chevy small block engines that use ignition breaker points instead of electronic ignitions, the number one cylinder is the one immediately clockwise of the small metal sash cover on the distributor cap. The firing order starts here. There is no sash cover on the distributor cap for GM HEI electronic ignitions, and the firing order is the same, but starting at the 5:30 position.
The firing order makes sense if you know how the cylinders are numbered. The number one cylinder is the front most on the drivers side and 2 being the front most on the passenger side. From front to back, the cylinders are odd numbered on the drivers side, and even numbered on the passenger side.
See the diagram; Click to open a printable larger image in a new window. The firing order starts with the number one cylinder. We would connect the number one spark plug wire to the distributor cap terminal in the 6:30 position. Since the next cylinder in the firing order is 8 (passenger side rear), we connect the number 8 spark plug wire to the next distributor cap terminal (approximately 7:30 position) in the clockwise direction from number one. You need to be sure you continue the firing order in the clockwise direction around the chevy small block distributor cap from the last installed spark plug wire. Setting the rest of the firing order is just a matter of repetition. Be sure to count the spark plugs from front to back on each side of the motor to identify the correct cylinder number in the firing order.

### Coil firing order

call autozone find out the firing order.the coil is numbered.the firing is counted from left to right.(for ex. if your firing order is 316524) three would be on the left so you run that sparkplug wire to the number three on the coil,and so on.

### Firing order Datsun 710 (4cyl. L20B engine)

Remove the rocker cover.
Turn the engine until it's at TDC on No.1
Both No.1 rockers should be loose.
Remove distributor cap and look where rotor is pointing, this is No.1 plug lead.

### Distributor cap and spark plug leads order/layout?

The firing order is 1342. The cylinders are numbered from left to right 1234. Depending on wether it is a 16 valve engine, the distributor cap lead number one position is at the front on the left, if its a normal 8 valve engine , the distributor cap lead number one is at the front pointing straight at the front. So, moving anti clockwise, the next lead will be number 3, then 4 , then 2.
