    So you have the middle picture. As for the # 1 it should be stamped/moulded on the distributor.

    The other way is to put the #1 cylinder at top dead center. Then pull the distributor cap off. Where the rotor is pointing is the #1.

I have a cylinder 6 misfire on my 00 cadillac deville. do u think the plugs need to ne replaced?


Usually, if you only have 1 cylinder misfiring, you have either a bad spark plug or bad spark plug wire. If you replace the cylinder 6 spark plug and still have a misfire condition, replace your spark plug wires. If replacing the plug and wires doesn't fix the problem, replace the ignition coil.

To get a tune up on m 95 cadillac deville what parts do I need.


I would start by getting spark plugs and spark plug wires. And find out (through part store)what the gap is for your plugs.Then i would replace the cap and rotor and check your air filter. If you have over 60,000 miles i would also change the trans.filter and fluid




Spark plugs
Spark plug wires
Distributer cap
Rotor (if applicable)
Air Filter ?

Tuned up car changed 02 sensor full tank of fuel still running rough


Oxygen sensor only report the condition of the engine the rough running condition can range from a worn sparkplug wires to worn sparkplugs to valve problems to injector problems. with the cadillac deville a tune up should be the first attempt to smooth the rough idle with the inspection of the cap and rotor cap and rotor do have a tendancy to arc internally and create misfire so does sparkplug wire that can leak spark voltage to ground and create misfire. the spark plug wire especially if they are brittle and hard can create issues

Where are the spark plugs? can't find them!


With your hood open, look for several large and long (probably black) wires. Follow these (ignition) wires to your engine block. Where each wire ends you will find a spark plug.

The following 2001 Cadillac DeVille owners manual should help.

I need to know where the plug wires go.from spark plug to distibuter cap on a 1986 4.1 coupe deville(cad.)


FIRING ORDERS NOTE: 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 in your book to reflect how your engine is wired. Fig. 1: GM (Cadillac) 250 (4.1L) V8 GM (Cadillac) 273 (4.5L) V8 Engine firing order: 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 Distributor rotation: counterclockwise 85872009.gif Fig. 2: GM (Oldsmobile) 307 (5.0L) V8 GM (Oldsmobile) 350 (5.7L) V8 w/EFI Engine firing order: 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 Distributor rotation: counterclockwise 85872009.gif Fig. 3: GM (Buick) 252 (4.1L) V6 Engine firing order: 1-6-5-4-3-2 Distributor rotation: clockwise 85872010.gif Fig. 4: GM (Cadillac) 368, 425, 472, 500 V8 Engine firing order: 1-5-6-3-4-2-7-8 Distributor rotation: clockwise 85872011.gif Fig. 5: GM (Cadillac) 429 V8 Engine firing order: 1-8-7-2-6-5-4-3 Distributor rotation: clockwise 85872012.gif prev.gif next.gif

I need the wiring oder for spark plugs for a 1970 cadellac deville a diagram of my distributor would help


According to my Chilton book this is same for either engine. The firing order is 1-5-6-3-4-2-7-8. Standing at the front of the car looking at the engine #1 piston is at 9 o'clock on the distributor and it turns clockwise. The hold down screws for the cap should be at 12 and 6 o'clock nd the window to set dwell should be at 9. The odd number pistons are on the passenger side starting from the rad and the even numbers on the driver's side from the rad. Hope this helps.
