I'm going to assume that you have some idea where the rotor was pointing before you took unit out.
Turn the crankshaft by hand 'till you find the small notch on the back edge of the pulley. Mark the notch with white crayon. Turn the crank untill the mark you made lines up with "0" on the scale on the right side (facing engine) at about 2 oclock. (sometimes needs to be cleaned off to read it) You are now either dead on or 180degrees out of phase. (rotor will be pointing directly away from where you think it should be if it is 180 out). If close to original location, make a mark on outside of dist housing, directly below #1 ign wire post. Remove cap and check that rotor is aligned with the mark you made. If it is not, remove distributor part way, till you can feel the drive gear just disengage, then turn rotor towards the reference position. Once positioned, push distributor housing back down into block. If it does not drop down fully, have someone turn the crank by hand two full turns back to reference mark while you push gently down on distributor. when the oil pump shaft engages, dist will drop down.
If you found dist to be 180 out, remove it and turn rotor to proper position, then follow instructions above.
The timing is non adjustable on these engines.(timing is changed by computer) There is a single bolthole in the dist retaining ear (part of dist housing) When checking reference points, always keep this hole lined up with bolt hole in block. Before attempting to start engine, make sure that after everything is bolted down, your reference marks match!
There are several other ways to do this. This is the most simple and safest way. as at no time is the ignition key in the "on" position, while making these adjustments..
Turning the engine with the key "on", even by hand, & even with the timing out of phase can result in "kickback" which can and usually does hurt someone.

SOURCE: Rear Window Switch Problem with Mk3 VW Golf 1.9TD

i had the same problem. After checking the window motor was not the problem i then checked the wiring harnes in the door. I beeped out all the connectors to make sure there were no broken wires and cleaned up all the contacts. The main connector looked quite corroded. I sprayed all the connectors with rust check and reassembled. The window is working fine now

NEED FIRING ORDER FOR 1997 LEXIUS 450


There should be an EPA sticker somewhere in the engine compartment, which will show vacuum line routing, firing order, and spark plug gap. If that sticker is missing, you may need to contact a Lexus dealership, give them your VIN number, and have them provide the information for you.

How did you make the determination that all the firing orders are wrong? No matter what the source was, the firing order should be the same no matter who you got the information from. Am I correct on this.....that everybody keeps giving you the same firing order??? As a point of emphasis I would like to know if you recieved conflicting specifications regarding the firing order. You may want verify the calibration of the distributor's position. At TDC the distributor rotor should be pointing to #1 cylinder terminal on the distributor cap, or 90 degrees across from it. Please verify.

Where can I find a spark plug wiring diagram for 1997 3.1l engine


Normally the firing order will be stamped on the top of the intake manifold also the number one plug will be the front one on the drivers side of the car. On the top of the distributor cap you should see a number one that is where the number one plug wire goes follow the firing order on the manifold and go clock wise on the distributor cap
