    My car won't start but I have power, it's though it want to start but it won't, there is no clicking noise, as if it's the starter... am I needing to change spark plugs, where are they located?

  • Anonymous Mar 20, 2014

    after replacing plugs and wires i'm still getting a multi missfire feel in the car. Want to double check with an actual manual, know where i could get one free online? Or will i have to wait for autozone to open?

Spark plug wires firing order


Hi: Your Firing order for a V-8 GM Engine is 1--8--4--3--6--5--7--2--
Clockwise rotation.

< Back of Engine >

8 7

This should get you Fixed-Up. To make sure your are starting your #1 Plug in right place on rotor = Pull Coil wire 1st so it won't start== then pull #1 Spark Plug,Then Put your index finger in the #1 Plug hole,Have Someone bump the engine around until Air is pushing your finger out==(STOP) now you are at TDC Top Dead Center ,Pull Distributor Cap off and What ever the Distributors Rotor is Pointing to Should be #1-Start #1 Wire There And Go Clockwise as I gave the Order Its Again 1--8--4--3--6--5--7--2

Hope this gets you started and set your timing and your onthe Way,PLEASE let me Know by Voting for the Quality of my Answer.

Thank You From: D_HUBBS

I think the firing order is not correct on my 89 beretta V6


firing order for the 2.8 and 3.1 engines is 1 2 3 4 5 6. if you got plugs wires out of place left from right of coil pack..this is where your wires will go from coil pack to plugs.1 4 6 3 2 5 . now looking at your engine.rear cylinders left from right is 1 3 5 your front cylinder left to right is 2 4 6 now firing order for 2.0 - 2.2L - 2.3 engines is 1 3 4 2 . looking at 2.3 engine left to right cylinders is 1 2 3 4 .now the 2.0 2.2L engine cylinders left to right is 4 3 2 1.if you got coil wires mixed up.looking at coil pack facing you first would be 1 4 3 2 .this is the cylinders wires will go.

I was changing the spark plugs and I think i got the three plugs up aginst the fire wall mixed up what is the fireing order


firing order is 123456, but I think what you want is where to plug which wire....the back three are 1,3,5 from left to right. The coil packs should go in order from left to right, 5,2,3,6,4,1 HTH

Swap the coil pack to another cylinder if it is individual. If not, you should be able to pull the wire away from the plug and hear it fire. If not, you have a bad coil. If so, I would look at doing a compression test and possibly a leak down test.

Have another look at your plug wires, and make sure that you have them in the right order. As you probably know, if the firing order is wrong, you can have problems. That is somewhere for you to start, anyway.
