Have1999 suburban k1500 5.7. have spark out of coil but no spark at plugs. have changed rotor and cap several times what else could it be.need wiring diagram to see where wire out of distributor goes...


If you can tell me what color the wire is I should be able to tell you where it goes.
But if you are getting spark from the coil tower the primary ignition system is working.
Have you checked the coil wire, and will it fire a plug ? The coil could be weak enough to fire a plug in open air but not in a cylinder under compression.
You do know for a fact the distributor rotor is turning, right ?

No spark to engine 1991 ford pickup


It can be faulty or dirty spark plug itselfd.Also for reference get the fuel level checked.Is the fuel tank is empty or near to empty.
Try cleaning the spark plugs and then see if that is helpin.On some cases the black carbon layer gets collected on the spark plugs and that causes the problem,so cleaning the plugs help.But if its not helping,then spark plug has to be replaced.Spark plugs get power from ignition coil to ignite sparks.If ignitioncoils are faulty then also there will no spark.--------------

I have a 91 honda civic and need spark plug wire diagram


Fire order
1-3-4-2

Cylinder #1 will be the one closes to the fan belts and so on 1-2-3-4, on the distributor cap there should be a # 1 stamped on it, put cylinder # 1 spark plug wire on that one, install spark plug wire in firing order clockwise on the cap, the cap some time's might even have the firing order on it.

Im trying to find the correct order for the spak plug wires from the distributor cap to the engine on a 1991 subaru loyale, 4 cylinder 1.8 liter


Its easy to set the distributor timming all you have to do is to aligne the crankshaft pully to the marks and see which cylinder is on firing or rather on power stroke you may hve to remove the vavle cover to get the correct cylinder at power stroke which will have the valves (inlet & exhaust )closed.
At the distributor cap removed check out the rotor as to where it is and thts your number one, since you know the firing order so from here you should be able to get the wiring of the distributor correct.
Good Luck.

Replacing spark plug wires


It's gotta be 5.7 V-8 . As u stand in front of the suburban facing the front bumper, there are 4 spark plugs on each side of the engine. The front (of the engine) plug on the drivers side, is plug #1, the front plug on the pass. side is #2, then back to driver side, next plug back is #3, back to Pass side, next plug is #4 etc. to #8. The distributor cap (spark plug wires go from dist. cap (9 wires on top) to each spark plug, Extra wire goes to coil, which sends spark to all wires). The wires fire in the following order: 1, 8, 4, 3, 6, 5. 7, 2. You will have to find where the #1 spark plug goes in the distributor cap, some (hopefully yours ) have a #1 on the top next too where the wire plugs in to the cap. If u find this u r good to go! Put #1 wire in, using a pushing/twisting motion, the wires go in in a clockwise order from #1 as u look down on the distributor. Wires to spark plugs go on w/ same push/twist. You should hear/feel a slight click or snap (not always though!) if inserted all the way. Let me know if this is enough info, if not I'll try to give u more. If u can't find where #1 goes on the dist. cap, stand on the driver side of engine, I believe #1 is at approx. 8 oclock position on the dist cap. Good luck!
