Coil pack connection is physical: Coil 1 to Cylinder 1, 2->2, etc.

I am not sure if this is your question, but firing order matches spark to TDC (top dead center) on the power stroke. The design of the crankshaft determines this.

1-3-4-2 is common for most straight 4's. Cylinder 1 is closest to the crank pulley. I believe your coils are 'waste spark' which means it will fire two cylinders at the same time. When the coil fires, one cylinder is on the power stroke and is wanting this spark. The other cylinder is on the exhaust stroke at this time, and thus the spark is 'wasted' on that cylinder. But a cylinder with exhaust gas has high impedance, so most of the energy is delivered to the intended cylinder.

If your question was 'should I just connect 1->1, 2->2, 3->3, 4->4' [ yes!] vs. ' should I try to connect coils following the firing order' [no] then the answer is the first. The trigger wheel determines which coilpack fires when, you just need to hook up the wires number for number.

The coil terminals from left to right: 5,2,3,6,4,1
Firing order 1,2,3,4,5,6

3.4L DOHC V-6: The cylinder location is from left to right (rear) 1,3,5 (front) 2,4,6
The coil terminals are from front to rear 5,2,3,6,4,1

Firing order. took the spark plug cables off and don`t know where they go back


First,look at the coils see if the towers are numbered.Each coil fires 2 cylinders!
look on intake manifold for fireing order display! The v6 engine fires from one bank across to the other in a straight line example,cylinders 1&2 3&4 and 5&6 at the rear of the engine or farthest right side. 1&2 left side faceing engine 3&4 in the middle. All you need to do is find cylinder # 1 hook up the # 1 wire to the # 1 coil tower to the # 1 plug or cylinder,follow the fireing order 123456,its simple if you cant see coil tower numbers look at another car with same engine that has distributor less ignition.The coil pack for the 4 cylinder gm has plug wire terminals or towers numbered as well.Only in a harder place to see like behind and underneath!

Firing Order diagram for 2006 Ford Explorer


Hope this helps. The ignition coil:
  • changes low-voltage pulses from the PCM to high-voltage pulses.
  • fires 2 spark plugs simultaneously.
  • has 3 transformers.
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 1 and 5
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 2 and 6
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 3 and 4
Spark plug wires:
  • carry high-voltage pulses from the ignition coil to the spark plugs.
The spark plugs:
  • change high-voltage pulses to spark at the gap, which ignites the fuel and air mixture.
The firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6.

Your firing order is 1-3-4-2. There are 2 ignition coils under the cover sitting on top of the engine. One coil fires cylinders 1 and 4. The other fires cylinders 2 and 3.
