According to Saturn timing specifications, the internal firing order for the Saturn 1.9L motor, both Single overhead cam, or Twin cam is as follows:
Left to right 1-3-4-2

If you are routing spark plug wires, and need to know the order of wires from the coils to the engine, the order is as follows:
Left to right 4-1-2-3

If i have a 1996 chevy cavalier i have the firing order for the spark plugs but need the order for the distributor or ignition coil

    FIRING ORDERS

    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.

    How to change spark plugs


    The spark plugs are located under the four spark plug wires that go through the middle of the valve cover on top of the engine. With a twisting motion, remove the plug wires from the spark plugs. Then using a 5/8 inch spark plug socket and inch extension on a 3/8 inch ratchet, remove the spark plugs. Gap the new plugs to the correct gap (located on the label on the underside of the hood), and in stall into the holes in the valve cover using only your hand to get them started, then tightening with the ratchet. Then reinstall the wires back to their original locations, and you are finished.....

    I changed my spark plug wires and possibly have them connected wrong. Is there a schematic that I might follow in order to ensure they are connected correctly?

    Saturn stalling out


    sounds like bad spark plug wires. i would recommend changing the plugs and wires - you can usually get the plugs and wires for about 40-60 bucks depending on what quality you get. the problem is that the heat expands the casing on the plug wires and can cause intermittent shorts so that could explain why there is no exact time between occurrences.

    Sensor


    The ects in located on the drivers side up towards the top and into the side of the block has a small 2 wire plug,make sure when you buy this that you tell them sensor and not switch as they look the same,do this with the engine cool,remove the coolant tank cap to relieve pressure and coolant loss will be very small.
