What is the firing order for a 1986 buick regal 305 engine


The firing order is the same, 18436572
But, depending on who made the engine, the firing order may go cw or ccw around the cap. You need to check which way the rotor turns when you crank it, then follow the firing order in that direction. Sometimes the number 1 spark plug tower is marked on the cap, if not, put the number one cylinder on top dead center of compression stroke, which ever coil tower the rotor is leading into is number one, then follow the firing order in correct direction of rotation. You driver side cylinder bank should be numbered, 1357 from front to back, passenger side 2468, front to back.
If you replace plugs and plug wires, one at a time, you won't have this problem. Goodluck.

My 1980 Buick century is getting fuel to the carburetor, it has spark, but still won't start any ideas?


is the spark hot enough, high voltage or low, it should jump a gap of 1/4-1/2", and be bright blue/orange spark. is the timing chain worn and need replacing. what shape is the plugs, wires, cap/rotor. it could be the ignition module in the distributor. is the fuel fresh and good quality.

I have a 2001 chevy express 1500 v6 it wont start i check fuel pump,fuses and replaced distributor cap and rotor. havent check spark plugs or wires. it wont start...


Check for broken timing belt. Put a screew into spark plug head put the other end close but not touching to a metal engine part. have some one check for spark while you turn over engine. if thei is no spark check with distributor cap off if the rotor rotates when engine is being tuned over. if not then check timing chain. Good luck.

Won't start, fuel pump runs at key on, spark at coil wire into distributor is yellow, little or no spark at plug wire ends


Sounds like bad distributor cap or rotor. If ones bad, might as well change both. Take off the cap and if there is a black color on the ends of the prongs, or on the end of the rotor, time to replace. Is it getting fuel into motor?
