I need to put the spark plus wires back on the distributer cap


You don't mention the model...so your best bet is to call your local parts store to ask the correct firing order for your model and motor...be sure to review for clockwise or counter-clockwise rotation...after you locate the #1 cylinder contact on top of the distributor then follow the firing order in the correct order around the distributor cap...push down until snug fit on cap...:)

Took the distributor out and cleaned it then put it back in and now the truck wont crank but tries to do so. need some tips please


Did you take out the ENTIRE Distributor or just the cap?

If you took out the entire Distributor, and put it back in, there is a possibility that you put it in backwards. The bottom of the Distributor has a 'notch' in it. If you turn it 180 degrees the wrong way, and put it back in, your truck will not start, because it is in effect 180 degrees out of alignment with the timing.

If you only took out the cap, refer to your owners manual (Hanes is best) for the plug wire placement in reference to the firing order, and make sure all the plug wires are in the correct locations. Also, make sure your plug wires are seated all the way down onto the plugs, and the cap is secured tightly onto the base of the Distributor.

Make sure your Coil Wires are also seated properly to the coil and the Distributor.

Clean the battery connections. Remove the battery connections, clean them and reinstall.

I took of*** my spark plug wires working on my small block 350 pickup and I don't remember the the firing order to put the new wires back on. Is there a diagram anywhere or is it even that difficult to...


Next time number each lead before you remove it and no. the dissy cap as well

The firing order, which should be cast into the intake manifold, for the chevy small block V8 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The firing order is the numerical sequence in which the spark plugs are fired. The insertion position of each spark plug wire around the circumference of the distributor cap can be found according to a clock face. The insertion sequence determines the firing order. The firing order is followed clockwise around the distributor cap starting from the 6:30 position with the 6:30 position being the number one cylinder spark plug wire.
On classic chevy small block engines that use ignition breaker points instead of electronic ignitions, the number one cylinder is the one immediately clockwise of the small metal sash cover on the distributor cap. The firing order starts here. There is no sash cover on the distributor cap for GM HEI electronic ignitions, and the firing order is the same, but starting at the 5:30 position.
The firing order makes sense if you know how the cylinders are numbered. The number one cylinder is the front most on the drivers side and 2 being the front most on the passenger side. From front to back, the cylinders are odd numbered on the drivers side, and even numbered on the passenger side.
See the diagram; Click to open a printable larger image in a new window. The firing order starts with the number one cylinder. We would connect the number one spark plug wire to the distributor cap terminal in the 6:30 position. distributor.pngSince the next cylinder in the firing order is 8 (passenger side rear), we connect the number 8 spark plug wire to the next distributor cap terminal (approximately 7:30 position) in the clockwise direction from number one. You need to be sure you continue the firing order in the clockwise direction around the chevy small block distributor cap from the last installed spark plug wire. Setting the rest of the firing order is just a matter of repetition. Be sure to count the spark plugs from front to back on each side of the motor to identify the correct cylinder number in the firing order.

I need the firing order & diagram on the distributer cap to the spak plugs


If your engine is a V6 I need to know the size to help you.

If its the V8 engine the firing order should be 1 8 4 3 6 5 7 2 in the order of rotation on the distributor (clockwise) Your model should have the # 1 marked on the cap and as long as no one has had the distributor out and put it back in a little off, It should be where its marked. If its not marked by the hold down for the wires to the cap, then (all things being correct) you should have the number 1 pointing towards the front. Number 1 normally points to the number 1 cylinder. On GM cars the furthest forward head is the Odd bank and the other head the Even bank. So the furthest forward bank would be 1 3 5 7 and the other side of the engine is 2 4 6 8.

I dont have a picture but this explination should help.
Hope this helps you get going again.

Put distributor cap on blazer fire came out of engine


If when you changed the distributor cap you misplaced the wires in the incorrect order you could have caused a misfire. When looking at the cap the correct firing order for a 4.3 liter is 165432 going clockwise. Also if you loosened the distributor hold down bolt and turned the distributor even slightly you could cause a misfire.

Pasenger side isnt firing with new plugs and wires


Recheck the rotor position and spark plug wiring for correct positions for starters. camshaft sensor?
-------------------
You need to bump the starter over till you get the timing mark up on the front of the harmonic balancer to line up with the - O degree, Top Dead Center mark (TDC) first. With the Distributor cap off the distributor so you can see the Rotor. The rotor will rotate almost to the front pointing at the back of the throttle body of the EFI. You need to mark the distributor cap , once you get it on ZERO, to mark it as number one, on the post bulge on the cap that the rotor points to. this is the post we start with in putting the wires back on in sequence. This puts the wires back on the cap according to the firing order you see on the intake manifold. The rotation of the rotor you see...as you bump the started over, tells you how the wires...in sequence go around the cap...the firing order from number 1 goes in that direction. Remember on the vehicle ..the odd numbered cylinders are on the drivers side...Number one at the front ..then 3, 5, 7 to the back. All the even cylinders are passanger side 2 at the front ..then 4, 6, 8 in order to the back. You really need to tab the wires at the Cap End... as to which one is which cylinder. Use a piece of masking tape make a flag tab folded around the wire so you can easily see its number. Then run your sequence of firing order puting the wires to the cap in that order. This assumes you still have the wires on the right sparkplug....if you pulled the wires off the Cap and the sparkplugs...its OK..just mark which ones fit to the cylinder...one at a time...and tab it the same number on each end first. Post back if you are lost...tell me what has been removed...and what you left hooked up the same as it was BEFORE you started. It will go back together...and run . If you pulled out the distributor base then we need to talk.
please do rate the solution.

1992 Isuzu Rodeo Distributor wires 3.1L engine


Hi,
Isuzu seem to have complicated things by changing engines, firing orders and even direction of rotation! As you can see, they've numbered the cylinders the other way than the 3.2L.

The Firing sequence for the 3.1 (traditional distributor) 6 cylinder is as follows -

d6e5b2a.jpg

If you take the distributor cap off, there should be a "No.1" formed on the inside. Stick a lead on this before you put the cap back on and go from there.
As leads are different lengths, you may have to swap a few to find the best fit.

I think 2 of them will look out of place - but that's the way it's designed. Just make use of clips for holding them neatly.

Thanks for using Fixya.
