What cylinder is used to reset distributor on 1994 Isuzu p.u. 2.3 engine


Unlike French cars which tend to use number four cylinder as the timing cylinder, almost everyone else including Isuzu use the traditional number one as the timing cylinder, not that for practical purposes it matters very much as it is a simple matter to discover which cylinder is at the top of the compression stroke and then fit the distributor with the rotor pointing at the distributor cap segment for that cylinder.

It is the direction of distributor rotation that confuses people more than anything as many rotate anti-clockwise although I believe the one you are working with rotates clockwise. Another problem with many traditional distributor installations is they often share the oil pump drive which must both be aligned before the distributor will successfully slide home and then because of the skew-type drive gear the distributor turns considerably on the way in and then the rotor is found to be misaligned. The apprentice mechanic soon learns to anticipate and allow for these things.

If the same distributor is being refitted it is best to make alignment marks to cut the amount of time and effort. Few engines require the removal of the distributor for routine timing belt replacement and usually all that is needed is an ignition timing check with a stroboscope.

What is the order of spark plug cables to the distributor for mazda 323 2001


On the distributor cap on each HT Lead connection there is a number presenting the spark plug connection with the cap. if the distributor cap has only the number "1" and not on the other hole for the HT lead connection then you fit the spark plug one lead and following the clockwise rotation fit the other HT leads. 1 for first spark plug,2-for second spark plug etc. First spark plug is fro the front of timing belt side. Good Luck!

2003 Sebring lxi coupe Multiple misfire with new distributor new crankshaft sensor new plugs and wires


Hi Aka, Vehicles fitted with distributors do not usually have crank or camshaft sensors. As yours is indicating multiple misfire I believe it does not have a distributor bot instead either individual coils or twin coils per two cylinders. Have a diagnostic scan carried out and that will identify which cylinders have had or are still having a problem. It is sometimes required on some vehicles to delete the fault codes before the vehicle will run correctly. All that an be done during the scan. If there are other problems they will also be identified. Regards John

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Drain the cooling system.
  2. Remove the distributor cap and rotor. Remove the rotor adapter, the dust shield and the distributor housing.
  3. Remove the fan. The fan must be held stationary with tool 11 5 030 or some sort of flat blade cut to fit over the hub and drilled to fit over 2 of the studs on the front of the pulley. Remove the fan coupling nut; left hand thread-turn clockwise to remove.
  4. Remove the belt and pulley.
  5. Remove the rubber guard and distributor and or upper timing belt cover.
  6. Compress the timing tensioner spring and clamp pin with the proper tool.

Observe the installed position of the tensioner spring pin on the water pump housing for reinstallation purposes.
  1. Remove the water hoses, remove the 3 water pump bolts and remove the pump.

To install:
  1. Clean the gasket surfaces and use a new gasket.
  2. Install the water pump in position. Note the position of the tensioner spring pin. Torque M8 bolts to 16-17 ft. lbs. (20-24 Nm) and M6 bolts to 6-7 ft. lbs. (8-10 Nm). Connect the hoses.
  3. Release the tensioner from the holding pin. Install the upper timing cover. Install the pulley and tighten the bolts to 6-7 ft. lbs. (8-10 Nm). Install the belt and tighten.
  4. Install the fan, distributor housing and dust shield. Tighten the rotor adapter to 39-47 ft. lbs. (55-65 Nm). Install the rotor, O-ring and cap.

When setting the timing should the rotor buttons point to the right. They both are to be pointing 3 oclock.


With the engine set at top dead centre cyl 1 on the crank pulley the left hand distributor should align with the mark on the distributor body at about 2.30 3.00 oclock

1994 honda accord distributor not turning


you mean to say the distributor rotor doesnt turn? if thats the case you either have a broken camshaft, broken timing belt or broken distributor drive, better pull out the distributor and see if the cam turns when you crank the motor...

Car turns over but don't fire


Well if it doesn't fire, it doesn't always mean that the timing belt is the problem. There can also be a problem with ur distributor. Some cars the camshaft do drive the distributor, and the camshaft is being driven by the crankshaft via the timing belt. If the drive of the distributor is dependent on the camshaft, u should open the distributor cap to c if rotation is occuring in order to verify that it is the timing belt. If ther is rotation, chekc ur distributor

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
