The firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6 -. Number one cylinder is located on passenger side front of the engine, and the distributor rotates clockwise.

Ignition timing 1988 subaru 1.8l

the timing at the distributor is 20 degrees before top dead center. Also check your fire order 100 times It CAN start and run funny with the fire order off. She fires 1 3 2 4 (left head then right head) and your cylinders are clearly labed with raised numbers on the block at each cylinder.

Hope you get her running smooth soon!

I have been asked many time for diagrams for a 1994 chevy suburban K1500 I thought it would be helpful to post them on tips and tricks so it could be more accessible to everybody.

To help out. As you take off one wire to replace it. mark the wire with some tape so you can easily identify were it went. You may also want to look at the diagrams below and look at how your vehicle and make sure that someone else has not by accident switched a wire on the engine.

Need firing order to 89 chevy s-10 p/u w/ 4.3 liter/6cyl. replacing plug wires

4.3 v/6 firing order for an S-10 Chevy is 1-6-5-4-3-2, a helpful tip to always locate # 1 spark plug on a v engine.
If you look carefully at the cylinder heads note the very front of each, do you see one sticks out slightly further to the front then the other?
Tghis is the way these engines have to be cast for proper cylinder and timing rotation.
The furthest forward cylinder head is in fact the home of #1 cylinder, it is the first spark plug on that head, which in this case is the right side head.
