To see if a spark plug wire is arcing, view the wire in the dark while cranking the car. Any visible sparking means the wire is bad.

Spark plug wiring from distributor cap to spark plugs on a 95 honda civic dx 1.5 liter 16 valve sohc


If you look at the distributor cap from the wires side carefully, you would find either a line mark on one of the outer side of four holes (where the spark plug wires are inserted) or the numbers printed on the top of distributor cap (1,3,4,2). Fix one end of the longest high tension plug wire into number 1 hole or the one marked with a line mark on the distributor cap and the other end on spark plug number 1 (the number 1 plug is toward the pulleys and the belts side, then No 2, No 3 and No 4). While standing in front of right wheel you will see the distributor cap in front of you. The rotor moves clock wise. After you fix the 1st cord, next comes number 3 plug wire. Insert one end of the cord into the next to 1 on the right hand side and press the other side of the cord on spark plug number 3. Next to 3 is the cord number 4 and the last one is number 2.

Inspection

Inspect for the correct routing of the spark plug wires. Improper routing may cause cross-firing. Inspect each wire for any signs of cranks or splits in the wire. Inspect each plug wire boot for tearing, piercing, arcing, carbon tracking or a corroded terminal.
If there is any corrosion, carbon tracking or arcing indicated on a plug wire boot or terminal, both the plug wire and component it was connected to should be replaced.

Turns over then dies right away.


check spark plug wires to make sure they"re not miss-routed... start at the coils and work towards the plugs make real sure its got correct firing order sequence... it is usually posted on a label under the hood of most cars and also make sure they have a real good snap on connection both on coil and plugs and that the terminal posts on the coils are really clean! if this doesn't fix the problem then it probably is a timing chain problem..it might not be installed correctly. good luck to you! i hope its just a miss wire.
can you give me some feed back..i'm curious..thanks! a 40k mile car shouldn't need this kind of work..its practically brand new!!

My '96 lincoln mark viii runs rough and i put a obd II reader on it and it said "cylinder 5 misfire" and i have changed the spark plugs and wires. Now i am not sure what to do. Also there is a knocking...


The knocking can be from #5 cylinder which should be the front cylinder on the drivers side.
You should disconnect the negative battery cable for 10 minutes and see if the reader says the same thing after you restart the car.

If it does not cure the problem, it could be the coil pak for #5. The last thing would be a dirty or bad injector for #5. Hopefully the reader will show you fixed it.

The knock you refer to can easily be a balljoint or tierod end. If you are due for a frontend alignment those are parts which will be checked before an alignment can be done.
