Firing order is 18436572.
Find #1 and start from there. pop the cap to corectly determine the rotation cw or ccw. then wire accordingly. The cap should have a 1 marked on the cap. Drivers side front cylinder is 1 then 3, 5, 7 Passenger side is 2, 4, 6, 8
Good Luck.

Backfiring just before it starts


Check to see if you have a crossed plug wire on truck. Also check for a cracked insulator on a spark plug or faulty spark plug wire. Check for a vacuum leak at the intake manifold, throttle body,or vacuum hose. Hope this will help you.

Check engine light shows misfires in two cylinders and backfires.


Yes it could. make sure to use the correct champion plugs as well. Make sure your firing order is correct as the intake shouldn't cause a back fire. 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2.

Changed spark plugs and wires on 98 dodge ram. Now it backfires and has no power


Make sure that the firing order was not changed when you took the spark plug wires off of the plugs. You might also want to double check the gap on the plug. Let me know if neither of these were it.

Change spark plugs and now car wont start.....1994 ford tarus


Do you have the "firing order" correct? In other words, is each spark plug wire going to the same cylinder it was on before you changed the plugs? If you have done nothing else but changed the plugs then this is the most likely problem.
If when you try to start the car it backfires through the exhaust or backfires through the intake. Then this " IS" the problem. Good luck.
