What is the firing order on a 1990 Dodge 150 ram V6


The firing order Numbers are sometimes cast into the intake manifold runners, usually near the head. Check for distributor rotation and start at TDC ( harmonic balancer) for #1 wire orientation at the distributor cap.

Picture of firing order


See if the spark plug wire numbers are visible where they connect to the distributor cap. find the #1 mark on the distributor cap and you will be able to see the firing order. The firing order may be in raised numbers on the intake manifold too.

Need to know how the plugs go back on the distributor cap for 1988 v6 chevy pick up, what is the firing order?


Hi my name is David =d_hubbs . Your Firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 Clock wise Rotation. NOTE make sure you know where your #1 Wire starts at on the Distributor Cap. To know for sure Reove your Coil Wire so it won't Start --Remove #1 Spark Plug which is on the Drivers side Front Plug. Have someone Bump the Engine a Little at a Time Until You Either see pressure Rise on a Gauge or Just Put your Finger on The outside of the #1 Spark Hole ---When you feel AIR ==Compression out of that Cylinder. .Your at TDC on Compression Stroke. Just Remove Distributor Cap.Look a Rotors Position in your Cap Which ever Spark Plug Hole in your Dist,. Cap is Closet to is where you Start your #1 Plug Wire.Its Possible you went Slightly Past Number 1 ,If so Just move ALL plug Wires 1 Hole Back Counter Clock Wise.And you Should be Good To Go. Please Let me Know how my solution helped you by Voting For me and Leaving a Testamony. Thanks From:---d_hubbs

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.
