Than you post here and we'll get you a firing order diagram. In the future its always best to change the wires one at a time. Match the length of the old wire to the new wire and install the new wire. I have been in this business for a long time and still change wires this way.

Isuzu 2ltr bakkie nmbr 2 and 3 no spark?


post 3, adds, no spark , 2/3 (and still no year, no country stated)
bad coil pack?
wired wrong, this pack.
no photo of the engine, nor real name of it, Petrol.
btw, we dont have "BAKKIE" here. not a single one.
nor KB trucks, either.
what spark system this car has, im clueless.
4 coils or 1 pack.? if one pack , replace all spark wires
if one pack system , if either 2/3 wire opens, both cylinders go dead. try new spark wires. high voltage,

or you measured spark wrong, on 1 pack car.
it takes 2 spark plugs do do that. 2 good plugs and 2 good wires,
#2 and #3, due to the fact they are wired, in SERIES.
see its called wasted spark system, with 1 coil pack and no distributor..
the testing is unique. on this, setup.
try new spark plugs, gapped correctly
and 4 new HV wires,
I bet its go. if not the coil pack is toasted.

Spark plug wiring from distributor cap to spark plugs on a 95 honda civic dx 1.5 liter 16 valve sohc


If you look at the distributor cap from the wires side carefully, you would find either a line mark on one of the outer side of four holes (where the spark plug wires are inserted) or the numbers printed on the top of distributor cap (1,3,4,2). Fix one end of the longest high tension plug wire into number 1 hole or the one marked with a line mark on the distributor cap and the other end on spark plug number 1 (the number 1 plug is toward the pulleys and the belts side, then No 2, No 3 and No 4). While standing in front of right wheel you will see the distributor cap in front of you. The rotor moves clock wise. After you fix the 1st cord, next comes number 3 plug wire. Insert one end of the cord into the next to 1 on the right hand side and press the other side of the cord on spark plug number 3. Next to 3 is the cord number 4 and the last one is number 2.

How to change spark plugs?


First go buy the new spark plugs. While you are there ask the gap of the plugs, they may need to be adjusted before you install them. If so use a gaping tool to adjust the gap. One at a time remove the spark plug wire and remove the old spark plug with a spark plug socket. Turn it counter clockwise. Pull it out and put the new spark plug in and firmly tighten it, dont over do it though you dont want to strip it out. Put the spark plug wire back on and move to the next until the job is complete.

I have 1988 pontiac grand prix se with 2.8 v6 i have 3 spark plugs on the back and 3 on the front i replaced the the spark wire but i dont know what wire gose where in the spark coile


this engine is turned sideways in the engine compartment. looking at the front of the engine, where belts and pulleys are mounted, the odd number cylinders are on the left, the even to the right. starting from the front of the engine, counting towards the rear, the cylinders are numbered 1, 3, 5 on the left and 2,4,6 on the right. remove the spark plug in the number one cylinder and place a peice of tissue in the hole. now crank the engine in very short bursts. as soon as you hear the engine crank, let off the key. check for the tissue to fly out of the spark plug hole. once the tissue flies out, the number one piston is up. now you need to take the cap off the coil, and see where the rotor is pointed. hold the cap over the rotor to see which terminal lines up with the rotor contactor. connect one end of the plug wire to the corresponding terminal, and the other end to the number one cylinder spark plug after it is reinstalled. from here the coil terminals are numbered in a clockwise direction. the firing order for your engine is 1-2-3-4-5-6, so you just connect one end of a plug wire to the number two terminal, and the other end to the spark plug in the number two cylinder. repeat this procedure for the remaining wires,

Changing spark plugs


look under hood..you will see wires coming from distributor cap on top into your motor..if its an 8 cylinder there will be 4 in the back and 4 in the front.6 cylinder-3 in front 3 in back.get a 5/16 spark plug wrench and socket.you will need extension to reach back ones.if you bought new wires from parts store it will be even easier to find where plugs are located because you can compare the ones you bought and easier find the wires under the hood.the wire gets fatter as it goes into the motor.grab the fat part firmly and pull it off.boom theres your spark plugs.use your spark plug socket(5/16) with extension/ratchet and turn the plug until it comes out.do not break the plug or it will not come out.when you put a new one in screw it hand tight then 1 crank tight with the ratchet.when you change your wires do them one at a time as to avoid switching the wires up.on top of the distributor cap(where the wires lead to) there will be numbers as to what wire is for what cylinder...change plugs/wires 1 at a time dont take off more than 1 wire at a time!hope this helped!

Were are the spark plugs


Hello, Make sure you use AC Delco plugs 41-950 and wires, these cars are very sensitive to this brand, you will see 4 wires going to 4 round rubber plugs in the front of your motor and you can follow the 4 wires at the back of the motor, pull this round plug its about 5-6 inches long, looks like a cows utter, the spark plug is at the bottom of that hole, you will need a long rachet extention with a 5/8 spark plug remover, its a longer rachet that usally comes will any set, you need to use the spark plug bit because it has a rubber piece in it to hold the spark plug on the way out, I use a regular bit when putting new plug back in so it does not stick down there...some people tape the bit onto the extention so you can pull it back out without the bit sticking down there...you dont have to wrench them in really hard, just snugg them up good.
I alway replace the spark plug Wires one by one even thou they are numbered...hope this helps.
Regards,
Joe.

1987 GMC Jimmy Distributor cap and Rotor replacement


A diagram may not be needed as its a reasonably easy fix to do on your own.the distributor ca p will only fit on properly one way because at the base of the cap locaters can only fit the distributor if they line up.When doing the spark plug leads do them one at a time and if nessecary write or mark leads as 1,2 etc .The rotor can only fit on one way but put a mark on the distributor to show where the rotor was pointing when you took it off and if it still points there when the new one is fitted.When changing distributor cap and leads they have to go to the correct place.Pays to mark the outside of distributor cap where the locating bits are On the new and old one.Fit the new cap and rotor then take a spark plug lead and fit to new cap 1 at a time.You can tell by lining up the marks on the outside of the distributor cap when you hold them one on top of the other.Good luck
