6 cylinder firing order is usually ,153624. Fours are 1342.
Turn the engine by hand (use the fan belt or a spanner or socket on the crank pulley until the timing marks line up. The position of the distributor rotor should either be at number 1 or it will be 180 degrees out. Place lead from number 1 directly into the plug hole in the cap that lines up with where the rotor is pointing. Arrange the remaining plug leads in the order as above. If it doesn't run or sounds like the motor is locking up, it would mean the timing is out. Repeat the process again. Try and get confirmation of firing order from a Honda dealer. Good luck

1988 Chrysler Newyorker 3.0 fireing order Distributor counter clockwise

THIS IS NOT THE FIRING ORDER. Honestly just look at it, 123456? There is no way that is right. The order is right on the distributor cap I bought and works perfectly on my 1988 Chrysler New Yorker. It is 1,3,5,4,6,2 going counterclockwise on the cap.

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.
