Wiring diagram vg33 distributor


Seriously? Um... do you know the firing order of your vehicle?
If not, you're sunk.
If so, place the secondary wire from the coil pack into the middle of the distributor cap, and arrange the spark plug wires in order of their proscribed firing.
If you do not understand, you'd better find a mechanic to help.

Engine cylinder numbering


problem is that what auto zone told you was not complete
misfiring is more from faulty injectors/ injector control/wiring than from plugs and HT leads
so if you have replace the leads one for one then the problem will be the injectors

If i have a 1996 chevy cavalier i have the firing order for the spark plugs but need the order for the distributor or ignition coil


Firing Orders

  • Starting System

    FIRING ORDERS

    Print
    See Figures 1 and 2
    To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement.
    If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes to reflect how your engine is wired.

    I have a2000 pontiac grand am gt 6 cylinder my plug wires were put in the wrong firing order but now they are in the right order but when i stop and go to take off it dies or sputters and back fires w


    Normally crossing the wires should not affect anything else if you did not try to drive the car.
    If it still runs rough and backfires they could still be on the wrong plugs.
    Its possible the coils or the ignition module the coils bolt to were damaged.

    Installing Spark plug wires


    Unless the wires were removed the firing order cannot change as also the length of the wires do not permit that the wires switch over.
    All what is needed is to check the spark at each plug , if of low internsity check the ignition system including the HT coil. Also the fuel filter and the fuel pump for the right pressure.

    Firing order. took the spark plug cables off and don`t know where they go back


    First,look at the coils see if the towers are numbered.Each coil fires 2 cylinders!
    look on intake manifold for fireing order display! The v6 engine fires from one bank across to the other in a straight line example,cylinders 1&2 3&4 and 5&6 at the rear of the engine or farthest right side. 1&2 left side faceing engine 3&4 in the middle. All you need to do is find cylinder # 1 hook up the # 1 wire to the # 1 coil tower to the # 1 plug or cylinder,follow the fireing order 123456,its simple if you cant see coil tower numbers look at another car with same engine that has distributor less ignition.The coil pack for the 4 cylinder gm has plug wire terminals or towers numbered as well.Only in a harder place to see like behind and underneath!

    I need a coil in #cylender but need to the fireing


    If you are triing to find the bad coil simply run the truck and unplug each coil wire connection from each coil one at a time and change the one that dosn't change the way the engine is running.If you have coil over plug type ignition the firing order is controled by the computor and as long as you plug the coils in correctly no firing order is needed.
