Check this out, it is the firing order. I think it might be the plug wires themselves. When they go bad, all kinds of weird stuff happens to the car. Hope this helps.

1998 buick spark plug diagram


If the wires are in good condition, there is no harm in crossing them along their route. What kind of diagram do you need? What is the model and engine size?

I just changed my wires and spark plug, air filter, started it up on plug was lose and came out, i put it back. After the tune up now car is misfiring, like there is a dead cylinder, im thinking it could...


First thing is to verify everything you did!!!!! verify wires are on correct plug and coil tower using a diagram for your engine. Next look for a vacuum hose you knocked off or forgot to put back on. My money is on a crossed up wire! good luck!!

How do i know my spark plugs are firering in the


The best way would be to obtain a firing order diagram and go by that. You can probably look at the diagram somewhere online for nothing. Crossed wires are a pain to guess at.

Firing order diagram


Here is the firing order diagram for that vehicle, and if the ignition wires are not crossed then one of the spark plugs might have been damaged while installing it and the spark plug gap closed on one of the spark plugs, or one of the ignition wires (spark plug wires) has been damaged, and if those wires are over 5 years old then you should replace them. I hope that this helps you to solve your problem.

Rough idle after plugs and wires change


first verify plug wires you might have one crossed. get a wiring diagram and check each wire from the cap to the plug , cyl 1 to cyl1 ect. it is very easy to cross one. make sure the wires are on the cap correctly, make sure the cap is on correctly. any part store will give you a tune up print out showing cyl location plug wire timing ect. then you want to check everything is plugged in from vacuum lines to tps to mass air to map sensors . the car ran fine before this so its simple just retrace and look closely i bet there is 2 plug wires crossed or something is unplugged. just do one wire at a time from the cap to cyl. make sure your going the right way on cap. just get the tune up print out and retrace each wire.
