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.

I need to know the wire diagram for spark plugs on a 92 olds98 3.8 6cyl. cant seem to find anything on it thank you for your help


The front spark plugs are #s 1-3-5 from passenger side to drivers side. The rear plugs are 2-4-6 from paqssenger side to drivers side. If all the wire connections are in a row, from front to back (radiator to windshield) 1-4, 2-5, 3-6. If you have 3 on each side, it is very similar. 1-3-5 font to back on one side, 2-4-6 front to back on the other. Makes no difference which side as the plug wires are fired in pairs. Also the coils should have numbers on them to tell you where to put the wires.

I am looking for a spark plug/distributor wiring diagram for a 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee.


Plug wire order is: 153624 on six cyl 4.0 and 18436572 for v8.
#1 cylinder on 6cyl is the front one and on V8 is front on driver side.
1357 left side, 2468 right side. #1 on cap is easily found by turning the crankshaft till the timing mark aligns with 0. but that can be 180 degrees off unless rotor points away from the block (6) or towards the front of the engine (8)..

How the wire go connected to the spark plug


You may have put the wires in the wrong location, usually there is a diagram located under the hood to tell you where the spare plug wires goes, also located in the operators manual there should be the diagram for the spark plugs.

1987 GMC Jimmy Distributor cap and Rotor replacement


A diagram may not be needed as its a reasonably easy fix to do on your own.the distributor ca p will only fit on properly one way because at the base of the cap locaters can only fit the distributor if they line up.When doing the spark plug leads do them one at a time and if nessecary write or mark leads as 1,2 etc .The rotor can only fit on one way but put a mark on the distributor to show where the rotor was pointing when you took it off and if it still points there when the new one is fitted.When changing distributor cap and leads they have to go to the correct place.Pays to mark the outside of distributor cap where the locating bits are On the new and old one.Fit the new cap and rotor then take a spark plug lead and fit to new cap 1 at a time.You can tell by lining up the marks on the outside of the distributor cap when you hold them one on top of the other.Good luck
