The 1600cc Motors were prone to developing cracks in the heads between the inlet and exhaust valve ports, causing total loss of compression.
Removal of the heads will reveal how bad. See a repairer who specialises in VWs.
Generator problem could be worn brushes or a faulty regulator.

P0300 code silverado 1500 4.8v8 engine multi mist fire


more than one cylinder is without spark

check coil or coil packs... contacts .. corrosoion
leads
plug itself

Code P0300 is a code that is generated when your engine has a misfire that is not related to only one cylinder. Sometimes this code will be set in addition to other codes such as P0301 which means that there is a misfire on cylinder 1 (cylinder 1 is the number one cylinder when looking at the firing order.

My Opel kadette has no power and backfires when I over rev it refuses to go up any hills and has a continues miss fire


It sounds like your firing order is out or your timing is out or you have fuel starvation.
I believe the firing order is 1-3-4-2 on your car. Only English Fords had a firing order of 1-2-4-3 and VW beetles are 1-4-3-2.
Next. check the timing. You should have a spark on no 1 cylinder when the timing mark on the front pulley is about 16 degrees from top dead center - there is a mark on the pulley to show these positions. If you don't know how to check it, take it to a service agent.
Make sure your fuel filter is clean - replace it, they are cheap - and then make sure you have good fuel flow to the carburetor.
Finally, you could have burnt valves. This will mean taking off the cylinder head and reseating or even replacing burnt valves. This could be a costly job and should be done by a qualified technician.

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 firing order is 1-4-3-2. From looking at the motor, cylinder 1 is right rear, cylinder 2 is right front, cylinder 3 is left rear, and cylinder 4 is left front.

Vw golf 1.4 16v after changeing timing belt car idles eratticaly or not at all. Timing marks correct at crankshaft, cam pulleys locked as per haynes manual!


The timing could be 180 degrees out you will have to do it all over again. Bring #1 cylinder upto TDC check the distributor rotor arm that it is pointing to #1 plug wire, It is important that the cams are on the intake stroke and not on the exhaust stroke. The crank is no big deal just make sure the marks are lined up.
