Locate your no.1 tower on the cap (it will have the no1 next to it on the top). Order is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8.
No.1 thru 4 front to back on right (passenger) side and No. 5 thru 8 on left (driver) side front to back. Direction is counter clockwise.

93 talon tsi getting fuel and spark car cranks but wont start


I would try making sure spark plug wires are put on in the correct firing order. This is a common mistake in tune ups. Most intake manifolds have the firinging order cast in. Plug gaps correct? I cant come too far away.

I changed spark plug wires an spark plugs an car wont start


Make sure you gapped the plugs and make sure you have the firing order correct. If all the wires were removed at the same time, having them out of order is highly possible. Last, make sure the coil wire as well as electrical connections are in place around the coil. it's something you forgot or missed. check

Misfiring after replacement of spark plugs and wires


If it wasn't misfiring before. Make sure you have the proper gap on the spark plugs. Make sure you have the wires connected in the correct order. If you have the old wires, you may want to end up trying those one at a time to make sure you don't have a defect wire either.
Thank you,

2004 KIA OPTIMA WON'T START AFTER SPARK PLUGS WERE CHANGES


HI. There are several areas of concern here. I will list them below. Check all areas stated in the list for faults.

Possible cuases:

1. Incorrect firing order set. On the 2.0, 2.4 and 2.7 engines. These engines are equipped with a distributor-less ignition system. This system incorporates a coil pack assembly, along with wire sets. In order for the assembly to fire correctly, the order of the wires must be set to the proper sequence. if not, the engine will not turn over, or start correctly. Make sure your firing order is correct, and make sure you have not placed a particular wire set into the wrong cylinder. I will post a picture of the correct firing order for your engine, below this list, shortly.


2. Incorrect spark plug gapping procedure. If the new spark plugs were gapped incorrectly, this will not allow for proper spark, thus, preventing optimal combustion, due to lack of fire. Check the spark plug gap using a wire gap gauge, and adjust if necessary. The gap should be 0.039-0.043 in. (1.0-1.1mm)

3. Failed coil pack assembly. This will be the worst case scenario. The coil pack supplies the necessary current that fuels each plug. The current is transferred, via wire sets.This will be the culprit if all the above areas are proven to be operational, and in good shape.

4. Failed wire sets. Replace the wire sets if faults are found at the connector at the ignition coil pack, or at the plug boot.



NOTE*
In order to provide the correct firing order for your engine, i will need the engine size and liter information, if possible. Please post this information, asap. Thanks..

Put in new spark plugs but now engine ''hunts'' at speed and seems like its mis firing and runs roughly . Its a mitsubishi Magna TR 2.6 l efi


Make sure the parts guy sold you the right spark plugs for your car. Make sure you got the right gap and make sure you put the plug wires back on securely and in the correct order.  I usually do one plug at a time so I don't mess up the order.
