Fixing Order Mix Up on 03 Pontiac Grand Am... I accidentally mixed up two wires when replacing spark plug wires on my Pontiac Grand Am. I have the correct firing order now, but how do I go about fixing...


By mixing the plugwires up all you did was mess up the firing order. If you have the correct firing order, just plug the appropriate wire to the appropriate spark plug. You do not need to unhook the Battery. Unhooking the battery resets your computer and you do not need to do that for this problem.

1998 pontiac firebird coil pack, will coil make it miss on 1 cylinder, 3800 engine, misfiring, have changed plugs and wires


yes, it can happen. check for spark from the number one coil using spark plug wire and hold it near a grounded point. it should be a consistent spark with engine running. compare to different coil wire for verification. those coil packs are partially replace able because each coil fires two plugs. replace the no.1 portion with a new one from parts store. 28.00

Need a diagram for the firing order for a 1998 Dodge durango 5.2 engine. I think I mixed the wires up. Help!


Firing Orders NOTE: To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement.
If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed and installed improperly and then rewired. The new wiring arrangement would maintain the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes of the current plug wire locations and orientation of the distributor cap.

Need to know how to change plugs and wires on a 98 pontiac firebird (am a female gentleman be easy lol)


You will need a 5/8 sparkplug socket for a 3/8 drive ratchet
A 3/8 drive extension bar
A 3/8 drive ratchet
Pull wire off of spark plug, slide socket over plug, turn counter clockwise until plug comes out. Some might come out hard, and some are a son of gun to get at. To install, it's just reverse, but don't really crank down on them when you tighten them. At the same time, you can replace the wire on each plug you take out. Do one at a time, that way you won't screw up the firing order. Good luck.

The Firing Order is 1-6-5-4-3-2
When you take a wire off of the spark plug of a running engine, there is supposed to be an arc.

Remove and examine the spark plugs. See what condition they're in. It may be way past time for their replacement. Also check the spark plug wires. These are often neglected, and break down after time.
