#1 plug on the distributer


Put number one cylinder on compression top dead center, then look where the rotor on the distributor is put a chalk mark on the distributor housing, then install cap. Where mark and cap lign up to distributor cap terminal tower that is number one. Make sure you follow firing order and which direction distributor turns and put on the rest of wires. (example firing order 1-5-3-6-2-4 is on a six cyl.)

Why is my 1992 ford festiva firing in the order 1-2-3-4 and not 1-3-4-2?


Your order is wrong, and you need to switch the wires around on the top of the distributor. First pull the distributor cap off to find direction of rotation (some distributors turn clockwise, and some turn counterclockwise). Watch the rotor, the black bar on top of distributor shaft, and note it's direction of travel while someone bumps the starter over with the ignition switch. Now you can put the dist. cap back on, and arrange the spark plug wires in order 1-3-4-2. Leave number 1 in place, if it is marked as 1 on the cap. The plug wires can be pulled out of the raised terminals in the distributor cap for setting them in order. Just be careful of pulling too ******* the wires, you can cause them to break internally. Twist them back and forth first to loosen them, and gently pull them out, using the plug wire's rubber boot if possible to pull on them.
If it is easier to pull the sparkplug wires off the spark plug, rather than the distributor cap, you could set the order that way. Just need to know the direction of rotor travel. Number1 will go to cylinder 1, and next in order will be number 3, following direction of rotation, so that wire goes to cylinder 3, and on to 4, then 2.
Post back if you need more help. Good luck.

I mixed up which of the plug wires go to the ditributor cap. How can I tell from bottom to top which one goes to which spark plug?


Take out number one plug, make a wad of paper and put it just in the plug hole. Turn the engine by hand until it pops out, the engine is just about to fire on number one cylinder. Take off the distributor cap and see where the rotor is positioned, move the engine slowly and watch the points. When they just open that is the position of the number one plug lead on the cap. Firing order 1342, go around the cap with the other leads.

How do I replace the sparkplugs


Buy the appropriate spark plugs from your auto supply store. They will need to know your engine size (# of Cylinders Etc.) as well as the info you have supplied here (yr make model) Gap the new plugs to manufacturer specs. Follow the plugs wires from the distributor to the plugs. Remove plug wire and unscrew one plug at a time so you do not mix up the firing order and replace with the new plug. Put wire back on. You may want to replace the distributor cap and rotor at this time as well. Be sure, again not to mix up the order of the wires. Mark them in some way so you know how to put them back on the new cap in the same order they came off of the old cap. Medical tape and a numbering system works well. Also use a felt pen to mark the old and new caps to correspond to the numbers on the tape. Does this help? Let me know. Thanks.

What is the proper plug wire sequence on the ditributor cap for a 1998 Dodge Dakota 4 cilinder?


For all Dodge 4 cylinder engines, the firing order is 1-3-4-2
All dodge distributors rotate clockwise.
Standing on passenger side number 1 is at bottom left or 7:00 o clock.
going clockwise number 3 plug wire is next then number 4 then last one is number 2 wire.
plug wire number 1 is 7:00 o clock
plug wire number 3 is 11:00 o clock
plug wire 4 is 1:00 o clock
Plug wire number 2 is 5:00 o clock

HEI DISTRIBUTOR PROBLEMS


on the intake manifold you will see 8 numbers, this is your firing order
from the front of the car the left side numbers are 1,3,5,7 and the right side are 2,4,6,8. now ont the distributor cap there should be a number 1 at one of the plug towers. you start there with #1 plug wireand continue.
on a chevy the firing order is 18436572 and this is the order you put the wires on the cap. now the second problem i don't know right off hand which way the rotor turns on your engine. so remove the cap and crank the engine over and see which way the rotor turns, this is the order you put the wires back on the cap. hope this helps
