Not sure what engine you have, but the firing order is cast on the intake manifold. This will give you the proper sequence. If it is a V8 engine the #1 is on the front drivers side, #2 is on the left front and so on...odds on drivers side, evens on passenger side. I'm going out on a limb here and assuming that since its a '92, its probably a small block V-8, if thats the case...and verify on the manifold casting, the correct firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2

SOURCE: 1992 Isuzu Rodeo Distributor wires 3.1L engine

Hi,
Isuzu seem to have complicated things by changing engines, firing orders and even direction of rotation! As you can see, they've numbered the cylinders the other way than the 3.2L.

The Firing sequence for the 3.1 (traditional distributor) 6 cylinder is as follows -

If you take the distributor cap off, there should be a "No.1" formed on the inside. Stick a lead on this before you put the cap back on and go from there.
As leads are different lengths, you may have to swap a few to find the best fit.

I think 2 of them will look out of place - but that's the way it's designed. Just make use of clips for holding them neatly.

Thanks for using Fixya.

SOURCE: Isuzu Rodeo w/3.1L engine

Front Passenger side on cap is 1 - if you look on the inside of your cap there SHOULD be a pin marked with a 1, and the plugs go CLOCKWISE not counter. Just had the same problem myself with my 91 Rodeo. Cylinders are as follows Passenger side (front to back) 1 - 3 - 5, Driver side (front to back) 2 - 4 - 6. I called the Isuzu dealer and they told me it was counter clockwise, but when I hooked it up that way it backfired through the Carb.

Plug wires to distributor routing?


Hi Richard:
Here's a procedure that has worked for me.
- line timing mark on harmonic balancer with 0 on pointer. This is TDC for #1 cylinder. It will be on either compression, or between exhaust and intake stroke. If the valves are closed it will be compression, so distributor will be lined up to send spark to #1 cylinder.
- Lift off distributor cap. Rotor will be pointing to #1 so connect that cap wire will go to #1 cylinder. I put a dab of black marker on the distributor cap at this wire.
- Install the remaining wires in firing order sequence to the various cylinders.

1997 opel corsa 14i while drive if I depress accelerator car backfires,how do I fix that


Tune it up. New spark plugs if they are over 50,000 miles old.

Backfiring is typically a symptom that occurs with a gasoline engine that has spark plug wires crossed, spark cross firing inside the distributor cap in dust or condensation or an over lean condition.

If it runs smoothly when normal cruise it wouldn't be crossed wires so that leaves an over lean condition or cross firing in the distributor cap as the most likely causes. So check the inside of the distributor cap for moisture, dust etc and clean it if you find it.

Next, to check for over lean on acceleration the most likely is partially plugged fuel filter so renew it. Next step is to clean the fuel injector (s) with the good breed of fuel injector cleaner that you add to the fuel.

I have just completed a tune up on my 1998 Ford Expedition 4.6 L V8 and the truck is backfiring and I can nor find the problem. I have the feeling that I crossed a wire and I cant figure out which on. ...


it definitely sounds like that you have a wire ,or wires crossed on the distributor cap, the firing order should be on the intake manifold, the best way to see what the direction of fire is , is to remove the distributor cap, and have someone crank over the engine, to see what direction the rotor is turning, then after cap is put back on, look for the #1 firing position on the cap, this will be # 1 plug wire, then you will have to continue onward following in the direction that the rotor turned, on the cap, following the firing order, 1 plug wire at a time.

Changed distributor cap now car will not crank


You should check to make sure that the rotor button is in place. Also check the coil wire and the fire orderr to make sure that no wires are crossed. These are pretty much the only reasons why your car won't crank with the distributor cap change.

The sequence is 1342, ****............


The rotor of the distributor rotates clockwise as you look down into it, there should be a mark on the cap - or a raised area to locate the 2 / 1 meeting position.

start clockwise of the mark and the first point is plug 1, then 3 and so on till 4. after 4 you should feel / see the mark again.
