Firing order


Those numbers on the cap identify which cylinder is connected to which plug wire and in some cases its also the firing order. Usually the firing order is stamped into the top of the intake manifold someplace. You also need to know which direction the rotor is turning in to make sure you get the correct order. Leave the cap off and bump the started to see which direction the rotor turns in and you can work out the firing order from that.

On the inside of the cap which concact is no 1, top or bottom


if its the rear mounted distributor to the cam by firewall,looking inside cap it's the bottom contact. you can verify is point to point contact with an ohm meter.
the firing order once the cap is reinstalled looking left to 4312.
which translates to 1342.
BE CAREFUL OF THE 3 PIN PLUG ON SIDE OF DISTRIBUTOR & wiring becomes brittle.

Nubira 1999 wagon 1.6 ltr ... firing order request.. its not 1342 . can you help


The firing order is 1342. Be sure you have the wires on the distributor cap correctly and that the wire are on the correct spark plugs. #1 cylinder is on the right side of the vehicle. It would be on your left if standing in front of the car.

I mixed up which of the plug wires go to the ditributor cap. How can I tell from bottom to top which one goes to which spark plug?


Take out number one plug, make a wad of paper and put it just in the plug hole. Turn the engine by hand until it pops out, the engine is just about to fire on number one cylinder. Take off the distributor cap and see where the rotor is positioned, move the engine slowly and watch the points. When they just open that is the position of the number one plug lead on the cap. Firing order 1342, go around the cap with the other leads.

I hooked up the spark plug wires wrong on the distrator cap it is a 1988 4.3L 6cyl how can i find a diagram to fix this problem or tell me hoe to fix it


find the firing order which is usually on the intake manifold,put the crankshaft on 0 degrees top dead center,pull off the distributor cap and mark where the rotor button is pointing,start #1 cylinder at that spot(which that spot should be pointing towards the rear of the distributor),and # 1 cylinder is front of engine on the drivers side then it goes next 1 back #3 then # 5,and the passengers side front is #2, then #4,then #6 towards the back,and the firing order goes clockwise on the distributor.if it spits and sputters or back fires,then the timing firing order is off 180 degrees,so move every wire to the exact opposite on the cap,so your #1 plug wire will be opposite from where you put it first.then double check the firing order and all plug wires then try it.the firing order is:165432,i still dont know how to send pictures.

Removed my spark plug wires and changed them out out on my 91' ford f-150 but forgot how they go back and dont have a diagram


if the distributor hasnt been modified,then find # 1 on the distributor cap and plug wires in this order:18456273 and #1 cylinder starts on the passenger side in the front and the order on the cylinders is 1234 on the passengers side starting from the front of the engine and 5678 on the drivers side starting from the front of the engine,if the distributor has been taken out and turned at 1 time then put the crank on 0 degrees and pull off the distributor cap and locate where the rotor points,if it faces towards the rear of the engine then go ahead and follow the firing order i provided,if it faces towards the front of the engine then the crank is off 180 degrees so you would want to start the #1 plug wire exactly the opposite side of the distributor,then go clockwise with the firing order.

Need help replacing wires on dist cap 1987 4 cyl Trooper


Firing order is stamped on the block intake manifold or label. 4 cyl are typically 1324

From the web:
The firing order for four cylinder engines where the cylinders are in-line is 1243 or 1342.
Those are the only two possibilities I've ever found for inline four cylinder engines. In practice, it's almost always 1342, except for Ford engines which are 1243.


Take one off at a time and replace it

Do not run the wires parallel (side-by-side) for more than 6". Cross them over each other wavy-like if needed. This will prevent crossfire.

Replace Points, Plugs, Condenser, Rotor and Cap too.

Good luck!
