    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.

    Spark plugs and wires


    It sounds like the spark plug wires are not plugged into the correct place on the distrubutor. take the distributor cap off and crank the engine over. Make a note of which direction the rotor spins. (Clockwise, or Counterclockwise) then find the firing order for that engine. Sometimes the firing order is on the intake manifold. (if you tell me which engine it has, the 4 cylinder 2.0, or the 6 cylinder 2.5; I could post you the firing order). Now on the distributor cap there is one wire post that has the #1 on it, that would be where you put the spark plug wire from cylinder 1. Following the rotation of the distributor rotor, you would put the spark plug wire for the next cylinder in the firing order after the #1 wire, and so on.

    If your trying to change spark plugs remove one wire from a plug, replace that plug, reinstall the wire onto that plug and move on to the next plug. You don;t need to worry about firing order unless you plan on changing the wires or the cap and rotor. Even if you where to change the wires if you did them one at a time than the new ones would be in the exact same place as the old ones and there is nothing to worry about,

    FIRING ORDERS printpage_icon.gif

    Before carrying out extensive tests to isolate poor running problems, check connections of spark plug wires. This is especially important if plugs, wires, distributor, etc., have been disturbed recently for service. Obviously, this is not applicable to the wireless 4.7L engine.

    NOTE To avoid problems, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time to ease reinstallation.
    For vehicles with an extensive service history, keep in mind that the distributor 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 very important 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.

    Ihave changed the spark plugs but i dont know if put the caps in


    Not sure what you're asking. The only order that matters is the order of the spark plug wires. There isn't an order for the spark plugs themselves. So are u looking for the order of the spark plug wires?
