Dependent on which way your rotor button turns (clockwise or counter-clockwise), the firing order is 1-3-4-2. If you're unsure and the distributor cap doesn't have an arrow denoting which way the rotor turns, you'll have to remove the distributor cap and have someone crank the engine over to see which way it turns. Now, if you have ALL your wires from the distributor cap removed, you'll have to locate TDC (Top Dead Center). Remove spark plug number 1 and rotate the engine clockwise (as you're looking at it), with the distributor cap off until you can insert the end of a screwdriver into the spark plug port to feel the top of the piston touch the screwdriver. Remember, the Crankshaft goes around twice for every time the camshaft goes around once, so look at the timing marks on the Crankshaft and make sure there lined up at "zero", the piston is touching the screwdriver, and where ever the rotor is pointing...that's number one cylinder.

I hope this Helps. Let me know.

How are the spark plugs wired from the coil pack?


You didn't mention whether this was a 4 cylinder or 6 cylinder. Below is a link to the procedure for swapping them out, and down around step 7 is a diagram that shows where each cylinder connects to the coil pack. Cavalier is the Chevy equivalent of the Grand Am. Same parts and procedures usually work for both.

it fires 1-3-4-2. The coil pack is marked 1-4, match them up with your cylinders, and you're good to go! Cylinder 1 is on the front of the engine, the side opposite from the transmission. Find your alternator and that's at cylinder 1.
