GM is 18436572 for V8's. Looking at the engine from the front the #1 is usually at about 5 oclock on the distributor on the VIN E motor. It's at the 12 oclock position on the VIN Y engine. The 8th position of the VIN determines the motor type.. Number 1 position is often marked on the distributor cap tower. Number 1 cyclinder is drivers side front.

You can google the engine size and "firing order" to get a drawing or photo of the firing order online.

Fixing Order Mix Up on 03 Pontiac Grand Am... I accidentally mixed up two wires when replacing spark plug wires on my Pontiac Grand Am. I have the correct firing order now, but how do I go about fixing...


By mixing the plugwires up all you did was mess up the firing order. If you have the correct firing order, just plug the appropriate wire to the appropriate spark plug. You do not need to unhook the Battery. Unhooking the battery resets your computer and you do not need to do that for this problem.

How do I replace the sparkplugs


Buy the appropriate spark plugs from your auto supply store. They will need to know your engine size (# of Cylinders Etc.) as well as the info you have supplied here (yr make model) Gap the new plugs to manufacturer specs. Follow the plugs wires from the distributor to the plugs. Remove plug wire and unscrew one plug at a time so you do not mix up the firing order and replace with the new plug. Put wire back on. You may want to replace the distributor cap and rotor at this time as well. Be sure, again not to mix up the order of the wires. Mark them in some way so you know how to put them back on the new cap in the same order they came off of the old cap. Medical tape and a numbering system works well. Also use a felt pen to mark the old and new caps to correspond to the numbers on the tape. Does this help? Let me know. Thanks.

How do i know my spark plugs are firering in the


The best way would be to obtain a firing order diagram and go by that. You can probably look at the diagram somewhere online for nothing. Crossed wires are a pain to guess at.

Order of spark plug wires


You didn't specify 2wd or 4wd, but it won't matter as it turns out they are the same. The firing order is 1-5-3-6-2-4. To see a diagram go to http://autorepair.about.com/library/firing_orders/bl-fo-4771.htm
