Align distributor shaft timing


well if they are crossed it is bad. that could cause premature detonation in the intake or after fire in the exhaust. or no spark period. either way it will make a hell of a noise the manual should give you the firing order and on top of the distributor should be the numbers marking which cable goes to which plug on which cylinder. I wouldnt recommend running it till he can fix it cause it will cause more harm and more money in the long run if he does

Check your spark plug wires, you probably have them crossed.

How do i know my spark plugs are firering in the


The best way would be to obtain a firing order diagram and go by that. You can probably look at the diagram somewhere online for nothing. Crossed wires are a pain to guess at.

Firing Order diagram for 2006 Ford Explorer


Hope this helps. The ignition coil:
  • changes low-voltage pulses from the PCM to high-voltage pulses.
  • fires 2 spark plugs simultaneously.
  • has 3 transformers.
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 1 and 5
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 2 and 6
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 3 and 4
Spark plug wires:
  • carry high-voltage pulses from the ignition coil to the spark plugs.
The spark plugs:
  • change high-voltage pulses to spark at the gap, which ignites the fuel and air mixture.
The firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6.

Firing order diagram


Here is the firing order diagram for that vehicle, and if the ignition wires are not crossed then one of the spark plugs might have been damaged while installing it and the spark plug gap closed on one of the spark plugs, or one of the ignition wires (spark plug wires) has been damaged, and if those wires are over 5 years old then you should replace them. I hope that this helps you to solve your problem.
