    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?

    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?

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

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
