Correct firing order is 1-3-4-2. Remove the distributor cap by unhooking the clips or undoing the crews (if fitted) from the distributor cap. Remove the no 1 spark plug(furthest from the gearbox) Block the hole with your thumb. Use a wrench on the crank pulley nut and turn the engine clockwise(forward) until you feel pressure under your thumb. It will be best to have an assistant present and doing this unless you're an octopus. Now turn the pulley until the notch in the pulley lines up with the 0 mark on the plastic cover behind it. Note the direction of travel of the distributor rotor. When the marks line up you are on firing position 1, and from here connect leads for cylinders 3,4 and 2 in that order.(in the direction that you saw the rotor turn when rotating the crank)
If you have no discernible marks on the crank pulley side have a look at the other side of the engine, on the top of the bell-housing is a plastic plug. Remove this and you will be able to see the flywheel which has a 0 mark on it and a pointed casting in the bell-housing itself. Line these up with pressure under your thumb and you get the same result.

search the VW forums for a proper firing order, they will have it listed in an easy to find spot i am sure...on account to it not starting, the firing order probably does not matter, i would check to see that you are actually having fuel injected into the cylinders, check that the injectors are firing by pulling them out of the intake manifold when you crank it to see if they are spraying fuel

Just wondering if you have a breakdown diagram for a 1992 dodge colt 1.5l distributer


I do not have a breakdown diagram for a distributor, but just the firing orders and description of ignition system for the Dodge Colt and related models (based on Chilton manuals) if that's what you're looking for: FIRING ORDERS Fig. 1: 1990 1.8L SOHC Engines Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Rotation: clockwise 84182009.gif

Fig. 2: 1.6L DOHC Engine Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Distributorless Ignition 84182010.gif

Fig. 3: 2.0L Engine Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Rotation: clockwise 84182011.gif

Fig. 4: 1.5L Engine Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Rotation: counterclockwise 84182012.gif

Fig. 5: 1993 1.8L Engine Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Rotation: counterclockwise 84182013.gif

To avoid confusion, replace spark plug wires one at a time. --- Distributor REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Although the distributor can be removed from the engine no matter which cylinder is about to fire, it is a good idea to have number one cylinder at TDC before distributor removal. 1.5L, 1.8L, 2.4L SOHC Engines
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect and tag the spark plug wires from the distributor cap.
  3. Disconnect the distributor harness connector.

    Fig. 4: Ignition system for the 2.4L engine 84183004.gif

  4. Loosen the distributor retaining bolt and remove the distributor from the engine. To install:
  5. Rotate the engine until No. 1 cylinder is at TDC on its compression stroke. NOTE: Be careful not to turn it to the No. 4 cylinder TDC on its compression stroke by mistake.
  6. Align the distributor housing and gear mating marks.

    Fig. 7: Distributor installation for the 1992-93 1.8L engine 84183007.gif

  7. Install the distributor into the engine, while aligning the fine cut (groove or projection) on the distributor flange with the center of the distributor mounting stud.
  8. Install and tighten the distributor retaining bolt.
  9. Reconnect the distributor harness connector.
