have you seen if you are getting spark? also have you turned engine until top dead centre and looked to see when your rotor button is firing to make sure you are firing on number one cylinder?

How do you check the firing order on a chevy small block engine ?

Firing order for small block chevy is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The cylinders are numbered 1-3-5-7 on the driver's side of the engine counting front to back. Passenger side is 2-4-6-8, front to back. You will need to get #1 cylinder at top dead center on the compression stroke. To do this, remove the #1 spark plug and remove the coil wire from the distributor cap. You will need a helper for the next step. Place your index finger in the empty spark plug hole, Have your helper bump the starter with the ignition key, When #1 cylinder comes up on the compression stroke, the pressure will push your finger away from the spark plug hole. Don't worry, this doesn't hurt. Turn the key off. Check the timing mark on the harmonic balancer behind the crankshaft pulley. It should be pretty close to lining up with the "0" timing mark on the pointer attached to the engine block. Now pull the distributor cap and see where the rotor cap is pointing. This will be #1 on the distributor cap. The spark plug wire from the #1 plug will occupy that position. The next position on the distributor cap will be for the plug wire coming off the #8 cylinder. The rest of the plug wires will attach to the distributor cap in the above mentioned firing order counting clockwise. If you do not wish to place your finger in the #1 spark plug hole, you can use a piece of paper towel roll up and stuck in the hole just enough to form a seal. When the piston comes up on the compression stroke it will force the paper towel out. Any questions, just let me know.

My 98 grand prix gtp (3800) (L67) wont start...wines then BACKFIRES. everything from the heads up are brand new except the coil pack housing which ironically enough was submerged in antifreeze. however i...

If your firing order is correct(165432), then I would suspect the drenched coil pack. That oily antifreeze will penetrate every nook and cranny of the coil. It's probably shorting out and cross-firing. I would go ahead and replace it. Double check your firing order again. The back cylinders are 2-4-6, counting from to back, but that is not the firing order. The plug wires would attach to the coils in the following order, counting from the front of the coils(nearest to the front of the car)to the rear:1-4-5-2-3-6.Let me know if any of this helps you. Good Luck.

I took of*** my spark plug wires working on my small block 350 pickup and I don't remember the the firing order to put the new wires back on. Is there a diagram anywhere or is it even that difficult to...

Next time number each lead before you remove it and no. the dissy cap as well

The firing order, which should be cast into the intake manifold, for the chevy small block V8 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The firing order is the numerical sequence in which the spark plugs are fired. The insertion position of each spark plug wire around the circumference of the distributor cap can be found according to a clock face. The insertion sequence determines the firing order. The firing order is followed clockwise around the distributor cap starting from the 6:30 position with the 6:30 position being the number one cylinder spark plug wire.
On classic chevy small block engines that use ignition breaker points instead of electronic ignitions, the number one cylinder is the one immediately clockwise of the small metal sash cover on the distributor cap. The firing order starts here. There is no sash cover on the distributor cap for GM HEI electronic ignitions, and the firing order is the same, but starting at the 5:30 position.
The firing order makes sense if you know how the cylinders are numbered. The number one cylinder is the front most on the drivers side and 2 being the front most on the passenger side. From front to back, the cylinders are odd numbered on the drivers side, and even numbered on the passenger side.
See the diagram; Click to open a printable larger image in a new window. The firing order starts with the number one cylinder. We would connect the number one spark plug wire to the distributor cap terminal in the 6:30 position. distributor.pngSince the next cylinder in the firing order is 8 (passenger side rear), we connect the number 8 spark plug wire to the next distributor cap terminal (approximately 7:30 position) in the clockwise direction from number one. You need to be sure you continue the firing order in the clockwise direction around the chevy small block distributor cap from the last installed spark plug wire. Setting the rest of the firing order is just a matter of repetition. Be sure to count the spark plugs from front to back on each side of the motor to identify the correct cylinder number in the firing order.

Coil firing order

call autozone find out the firing order.the coil is numbered.the firing is counted from left to right.(for ex. if your firing order is 316524) three would be on the left so you run that sparkplug wire to the number three on the coil,and so on.

I have an 85 biturbo es and it is not getting spark out of the disturbutor cap it is getting fire out of the coil it has a new cap and rotor button please help

How do you know it's not getting fire out of the cap? are you sure the wire from the coil to the cap is good. High voltage has no problem getting across from the rotor to the terminals for each cylinder inside the cap as long as the rotor is pointing to the cylinder your checking, moisture inside the cap is the only thing that could misdirect the spark, make sure the cap is clean and dry and make sure your new rotor and cap are the right ones by comparing them with the old parts. Was it not firing before you got the new parts?

In what order do you set tappets on a 850cc 3 cylinder daihatsu engine?

I haven't personally worked on the Charade before, but the process on all 3 cylinder engines is the same.

The firing order is 1-3-2 and because there is an odd number of cylinders you will never get a situation where the inlet/exhaust valve on cylinder x is fully closed leaving the inlet/exhaust on cylinder y fully open (in contrast to engines with an even cylinder count).

Instead, you just choose whether to start with the inlet or exhaust valves first and then adjust cylinder 1. You then turn the engine over by hand until whichever valves you chose to start with are fully open on no.3 and adjust those and then the same on no.2. Starting again at no.1 you then do the remaining valves, so if you started with the exhaust valves, now you do the inlets.

Hope this helps, if so please return the favour by taking a moment to rate my answer.
