There are two screws to hold the cap on, remove them, and pull the cap off with the wires still on it. Then you will see the rotor on the post under the cap, this pull straight up and off. The new one slides right down in place. Then take one plug wire off at a time and put it on the same position on the new cap.

Doesn't really matter where number one wire goes as long as the firing order is in the correct order. I find it easier just to pull and put one plug wire on at a time.

I'm not getting spark from, the wires to my spark


check the distributor cap and rotor for signs of cracks and burn through, this was a common problem on these. have you check to see if the coil wire is supplying spark to the distributor cap, if so then its probably the cap and rotor.

I have a 1998 durango, I have no spark from disturbtor but have spark from coil


Replace the distributor cap and rotor. If you have fire from the coil but not from the distributor cap, you have a bad contact point between the cap and rotor. Replace both and you should be good to go,, if the information that you have supplied is correct.

I have just completed a tune up on my 1998 Ford Expedition 4.6 L V8 and the truck is backfiring and I can nor find the problem. I have the feeling that I crossed a wire and I cant figure out which on. ...


it definitely sounds like that you have a wire ,or wires crossed on the distributor cap, the firing order should be on the intake manifold, the best way to see what the direction of fire is , is to remove the distributor cap, and have someone crank over the engine, to see what direction the rotor is turning, then after cap is put back on, look for the #1 firing position on the cap, this will be # 1 plug wire, then you will have to continue onward following in the direction that the rotor turned, on the cap, following the firing order, 1 plug wire at a time.

I believe those motors have a distributorless ignition system. Each cylinder has a coil mounted on top of the valve cover.
