First we would need to know what size engine you have and what year your car is for sure. Most coil packs are numbered according to which cylinder they go to. You then need to know the cylinder numbers for your engine size. From there it is just a matter of connecting the dots. If you have a 5.7 liter engine with a distributor on 97 and earlier engines you will need to see the cylinder number diagram to know which plug wire connects to each pin on the distributor.

Good Luck

Rewired ford taurus spark plugs and when turns on it jumps what could i have done wrong?


If you replaced the distributor cap then there is a high possibility that you put the wires in the wrong firing order on cap.

If all you did was replaced the plugs, then I would pull each one out and recheck the Gap sizes with a feeler gauge. Also check to see if the spark/coil plug wires are touching metal or each other, which can cause the spark to arc out of the wire and never get to the spark plug. If I suspect an arc and do not see a physical problem, I wait until nighttime and look under the hood while engine is running...they stick out like a sore thumb. Also make sure that you did not put the wrong plugwire to the wrong spark plug.

When you change your plugs, you should also replace wires, cap and rotor.

Put new plug wires on my eclipse now it runs crappy


You may have your plug wires in the wrong order.
The firing order is 1-3-4-2 om cpounter-clockwise rotation. Look at the digram below. Notice the shaded blue is cylinder 1. From there, make sure 3 is the next wire, then 4 and finally 2.
