What is the firing order for a VW polo 1998 - where is number one on the distributor?
What you need to do is...
1, Find TDC (top dead centre) for cylinder number 1. Easiest way to do this is to get the car on level ground, put it in 5th gear, handbrake off and pull / rock the car forwards. You are looking to line up the timing dot on the crank pulley to the notch on the cover. At the same time observe which direction the rotor arm turns as well i.e. clock or anti-clock wise.
2, Once you have found TDC, look to where the rotor arm is pointing and that will be towards plug number ones lead position.
3, Now assuming the firing order is 1-3-4-2 and #1 cylinder is at the opposite end to the gearbox, you should be able to work out what goes where.
4, Look at the rotor arm position as you have set up the timing, fit the cap then fit the lead to #1 cylinder. Fit the other leads as above.
