It started without the distributor cap? That is impossible. I suspect you may have plug wires mixed up. Make sure it is wired as the diagram shows. Also replace the rotor. We pulled  and replaced spark plugs and - clay58_39.png

Spark plug connections Nissan Urvan 1985 4 cylinder


I have never heard of an Urvan, but I have an '87 Nissan Sentra with a 4 cyl. 1.6L engine. All Nissan 4 cylinder engines number the cylinders 1 through 4, number 1 always being at the front of the engine.
And the firing order is always1-3-4-2. So on the distributor cap, the spark plug wires will be arranged in that order. 1, then 3, 4, 2-and back to one, you see? I think, if I recall correctly, that the distributor shaft and the rotor turn counter-clockwise, but whichever it is you follow the order of rotation from 1 to 3 to 4 to 2. You can easily check your direction of rotation: with the distributor cap off, have someone turn the key to start for one or two seconds. You will see the rotor turning, and then you know to follow the firing order in that direction. Post back with comments or if I can be of further help. Where are you?

I need to know how to set the timing marks on the distributor for a 85 z24


I'm showing the first Cavalier Z24 being sold in 1988 with a 2.8 engine.
I'm not sure what you mean by marks, normally you would like up the marks on the crank pulley and turn the distributor to the point where the rotor is pointing to the number one cylinder plug wire.
If the distributor has been out of the engine, you will be on or 180 degrees off.
Once you get the engine started, you would use a timing light to set base timing.

You may have got the spark plug wires out of sequence.
Reseat the coil wire going to the center of the distributor cap Check the spark plug wires at the distributor against the firing order as follows:
The spark plug firing order is 1 - 4 - 2 - 5 - 3 - 6 The distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE The engine cylinders / spark plugs are numbered :
firewall 3 - 6 2 - 5 1 - 4 front

I have a 84 nissan z24 ,problem I am having it stalls when attempting to start the engine sounds like it is really heavy for the starter to turn the flywheel. Once i get it started from 1st to second it...


How about the coils? Also check the distributor cap as it has 1 carbon pin that is off center and can pop out causing damage and a non firing condition. You say its a nissan z24, I suspect you mean the engine is the Z engine because I am pretty sure chevy made the Z24 vehicle and datsun/nissan made the 240, 260, and 280Z's.

1985 720 truck 2.4 (z24) need picture where spark plug wires go


You have the NAPS Z (nissan anti performance system haha) emissions engine. the dual plugs provide a hot spark for exhaust gas reburn and lowered tailpipe emissions. both plugs fire at the same time.
It is not really a good engine platform for high performance modification as its limited by the NAPS Z cross flow cylinder head design, its best to leave them mostly stock. I have owned several of the 720 king cab pu's and can attest to their durability, fuel economy, and reliability when properly tuned and maintained.

1985 Ford Ranger will not start when damp and cool outside.


possibly distributor cap getting wet. Try this. When it's not starting, remove distributor cap and dry inside and outside with hair dryer on warm setting. See if it starts then. If yes, replace cap and rotor and make sure plug wires are clean.
If it still doesn't start, you may be getting mositure in a wire connector that operates spark to plugs.

Are you getting spark at plugs when it own't start?
Check by getting a spark plug and plugging a spark plug wire into it and grounding the side of the plug. crank engine and watch for spark at gap.
